Building a Global Learning Culture

by | Feb 1, 2016 | Articles, Event Slides

Building a learning culture that impacts individual and business performance is the holy grail of most L&D leaders. How do we shift the mindset of business leaders and learners- especially when they are scattered around the globe?

How do we transition from delivering online courses to creating an environment that stimulates sharing, communication and learning as a matter of course?  

In this session, first delivered at Learning Technologies February  2016, Laura Overton draws on insights from over 600 L&D leaders in the latest Towards Maturity Benchmark Study and Anne Watson HR director of CCL Industries (previously Worldmark) shared practical lessons learned from the implementation of their award winning Academy programme.

How to build a global learning culture – Top Tips from the session:

  • Start with buy-in at the top: engage with the board continually
  • Develop meaningful relationships with IT: bound by a common cause
  • Keep it really simple: address one business problem at a time in a clear, simple way
  • Changing behaviour: be persistent, use video messaging and interviews to get the message across that you want to communicate
  • Be ready to take risks – move on if it fails

The Towards Maturity Journey: River Island

We always talk about the benefits of undergoing Towards Maturity’s Learning Health Check and using statistics to emphasise the effects of benchmarking, but what does its real impact look like on a business? We interviewed Nebel Crowhurst, Head of People Experience at River Island, to find out what role the Towards Maturity Health Check played in helping her develop her organisation into one that facilitates a high-performing learning culture.

Case Study: Best Learning Technologies Project 2018 (UK commercial Sector)

In 2018, 93% of learning practitioners wanted to increase employee engagement with learning, but only 27% were successful. With less than a third meeting this goal, it is important to explore how an exemplar organisation turned their learning strategy on its head to achieve just that.
