Importance of Learning in the Workplace
Winning companies continuously enhance their people’s capability to adapt, grow, and thrive. Even though corporations spend between $500 and $1,500 on employee development, our research found that only 1-in-5 employees change their on-the-job behavior and performance from training alone. To truly develop the skills required for employees to perform at their peak, savvy talent leaders understand that they have to encourage learning at work and that continuous learning needs to be a mainstay of their talent management strategy if they really want to attract, engage, and retain the top talent required to stay ahead of the competition.
How to Encourage Workplace Learning
Leaders play a critical role in establishing a culture of learning that values and supports personal growth opportunities. Leaders themselves need to regularly express and demonstrate that continuous learning matters.
The Bottom Line
With some experts saying that the half-life of skills is only five years, it means that half of what your employees know today will be out-of-date in five years. To sustain a learning advantage, leaders must encourage learning at work by creating a powerful culture of learning that is monitored and rewarded.
