Giving employees an opportunity to grow increases motivation and engagement.
A successful Learning & Development program is tailored to the organization’s unique goals and culture; it focuses on building knowledge and provides continuous learning opportunities for employees. In addition, a complete program uses a variety of learning mechanisms customized to the workforce and produces measurable results.
Organizations that provide this broad view of Learning & Development can improve both employees’ productivity and fulfillment. That’s good for everyone: customers, shareholders, suppliers, and employees.
Our Learning & Development Framework shows a continuum of learning, based on activities people do while learning: from reading, listening, watching, and discussing, to doing, advancing the craft, and giving back. The far-left of the continuum takes place in a relatively safe formal learning environment. The vast majority of learning comes from the middle of the continuum, which involves experiential and on-the-job activities where most experimenting and accountability starts to take hold. At the far-right side of the continuum, learners take on more accountability as they progress toward mastery.
