A CLO is a Chief Learning Officer and is often referred to as a Training Director, Head of Learning and Development, or something similar. Over 90% of CLOs have 10 years or more of corporate experience.
CLOs are predominantly found in larger organizations, and also in the following industries:
- Education Management
- Professional Training
- Human Resources
- Management Consulting
- Hospitals/Health Care/Pharma
- Government Administration
As the popularity of e-learning continues to grow, expect to see even more CLOs across various industries and within companies that have multiple departments and partners. And if you want to do one or more of the following things within the next few years, you’ll want to consider having a CLO for your organization, too.
