Workplace Learning Loses – Unless We Engage Learners for Action
Date Friday, Nov 29 Time – Room Knight
In today’s workplace, we support our employees to be engaged and active learners. In a constantly changing business environment, constant learning makes our careers and our businesses future-proof. The reality however is different from the dream: in today’s workplace we are busy being busy, and learning loses out - often unintentionally. In this session for anyone involved in corporate learning, we will together: - assess the reality of today’s workplace learning: - explore the bad habits and biases that stand in the way of learning more: - get inspiration to set up experiments to engage our learners for action.
