PRESS RELEASE: Sysdoc’s timely launch of Digital Learning Hub in Leeds

Brayden Lissington

LONDON - 25th March 2020 - Sysdoc is delighted to be investing in digital learning, with the opening of a Digital Learning Hub in Leeds on Monday 30th March.

Although opening the physical office will have to wait for now, Clare Hill, Sysdoc UK CEO, explains that this is no challenge for our digital workforce.

“At Sysdoc, our entire workforce is digitally empowered to work remotely. By nature, our Digital Learning Hub will epitomise this capability.”

Building on Sysdoc’s international award-winning reputation in Digital Learning, the Hub will allow Sysdoc to invest even more in services such as multimedia development, experiential learning and learning and performance analytics.

The Digital Learning Hub will also increase Sysdoc’s capacity to deliver a full spectrum of digital learning solutions to our clients across the UK and abroad. Andrew Darwin, Sysdoc UK Director of Learning, explains why this is important, now more than ever.

“Although we are passionate about innovation, we are also practical about what people need. Right now, some people find themselves with an opportunity to think more creatively about learning, while others require rapid digitalisation of their physical learning resources. The Digital Learning Hub allows us to quickly deliver both solutions at high quality.”

Andrew Darwin says the modern work environment has been strategically selected to support Sysdoc's ambition to push the boundaries of digital learning by exploring ways in which we can use technology to improve the experience and outcomes of workplace learning.

“The goal is to give people the resources to be free to explore, create and adopt innovative new digital learning methods that really provide quality solutions for our clients.”

Juggling January

As much as I love Christmas, I hate January. For me, January is the most difficult month of the year – oh hi January blues, long time no see…   Do you know that feeling? If not, then you can count yourself as lucky. January blues is a form of depression that some people feel after the magic of Christmas and holidays come to an end. Its secret ingredients: A lack of motivation, exhaustion, melancholy, and excess of melatonin.

How we live now

Regardless of the latest restrictions and the challenges that lie ahead, there is now light at the end of the tunnel. Albeit a light that comes in and out of focus for many. There is now a future where we can start to heal, to unite, renew and to plan for a more certain outlook. If 2020 taught us one thing, it was to expect the unexpected – to be prepared to change, adapt at a moment’s notice. A quality I am sure we did not know we needed to possess as critically as we do now. This has been equally applicable for organisations as it has for individuals – with business plans and personal goals alike upturned and forward planning a challenge. What has this, perhaps necessary, blip in the history of the world taught us? What do we want the post-COVID working world to feel like? Are there elements of how we live now, that we want to continue with?

Keeping it on the DL - Guest Speaker LPI Chairman Donald H Taylor

Shall we jump right in? Are L&D teams relevant anymore? Given the steer towards customised, personalised learning do you still need an L&D team. Well, we are walking into this vlog with a bang. It is a crucial question and the elephant in the room that we should all be asking ourselves. LPI Chairman and Guest Speaker for this month’s vlog Donald H Taylor cleverly approaches this question. So, the answer is yes and no. Unfortunately, you cannot measure learning, but most learning takes place outside what L&D does. We live in a world where people can increasingly access information themselves and there are so many options on the market that it is no longer sufficient to just rely on L&D functions. L&D needs to adjust to this new world and as we have experienced previously, they are not the sole gatekeepers to knowledge anymore. However, they can make themselves an essential cog in the machine. The scope of what L&D should be doing has increased and it needs to adapt so it can help individuals reach their potential. Let’s face facts, Covid-19 has given people the time and determination to take up learning on their own. Upskilling was already a huge priority pressing on people’s minds prior to 2020 and as we move to a remote world, online learning is not only essential but the default option.
