Learning and Development Beyond Formal Training
Employee learning and development is critical for helping you to attract and keep a skilled workforce.
In fact, a survey by LinkedIn (Workplace Learning Report, 2018) found that 94% of employees are willing to remain with their employer longer if they are provided with opportunities for learning and development and career growth. As the world of work continues to evolve, providing employees with such opportunities has never been more critical. Many employers focus their learning and development offerings on structured learning and training, such as courses and workshops (classroom, online) and do not recognize the value of other more informal types of learning that provide avenues for sharing knowledge and lessons learned.
This type of learning can have several benefits for the organization. It provides opportunities for employees to collaborate. It serves to empower employees to explore areas that interest them leading to more focussed and targeted learning and development.
