10:55 AM Developing a Culture of Individual Accountability for Learning

One of the biggest challenges for the Learning Professional is that the learning programs you work on for months on end are often underutilized by employees, and for a variety of reasons. Culturally, there is very little individual accountability for learning. In fact, over half of employees say they would engage with learning platforms at work if their manager asked them to. The challenge for L&D executives is to effect a culture shift in the organization. Transform from a culture where individuals look at learning as "mandatory training" required by their managers, to one where each employee knows that it is imperative that they continue to develop and learn in their everyday job. Some topics discussed will include:
·         Establishing a learning culture where individuals are exposed to a variety of learning experiences in their day-to-day activities, metrics and communities
·         Impressing upon employees that skill-development is crucial to get ahead in today’s workforce which is full of skill gaps
·         Gamifying the learning programs to encourage employee participation and healthy competition
