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

Women in Work and Learning

Today is international Women’s Day; the annual occurrence that seeks to revel in how far women have come, and address how far they have left to go in the battle for gender equality. By celebrating what women have achieved, whilst highlighting the continuing inequalities they face, today plays a vital role in shedding light on women, their opinions and their experiences in life. We want to contribute to this insight and explore how you could make work place learning more effective by tapping in to the behaviours and ambitions of women in your company.

3 fresh ideas to reinvigorate busy learners in 2019

Every day your employees face dozens of clients, managers, reports and projects competing for their attention. With 55% of workers saying they lack time to learn, it is clear heading into 2019 that we need to apply some fresh forward-thinking to recapture the attention of the learners and revive their passion for learning.
