3:10 PM Creative Approaches to Developing and Maintaining a Culture of Learning

What does it mean to have a Culture of Learning – and why is it so important?  One of the biggest challenges facing organizations today is how to create the conditions where employees will take advantage of the learning programs and resources available to them.  In most organizational cultures, there is very little individual accountability for learning, both in the formal and informal sense. In surveys, more than 50% of employees say they would engage in learning if they had the time, or if their manager asked them to do so.  The challenge for L&D executives is to effect a culture shift in the organization; to integrate learning into the DNA of what employees do every day in their jobs.  Having a learning culture within your organization means that employees recognize the value proposition of learning, embrace both the informal and formal opportunities, and take ownership of their upskilling and development without waiting for permission from their manager. Some topics discussed will include:
  • Establishing a culture of continuous learning where management prioritizes learning, models best practices, and recognizes and rewards employees who demonstrate learning behaviors 
  • Linkage between continuous learning and readying employees to develop skills for the future of work (and the changing landscape in the workforce). 
  • Compelling ways engage employees and create modern, impactful learning opportunities (i.e.: Gamification, Social Learning, Storytelling, etc.)
