Four Reasons Why it’s Important to Develop a Strong Company Culture of Learning

Companies that have policies in place to foster learning opportunities for employees generally see a rapid increase in innovation and growth as a result. However, this learning should not merely be focused on compliance issues, but on an effort to continually enhance the knowledge and skills of employees in order to compete in the market. Employees who have access to formal and informal learning and development programs are able to outperform their peers working for other companies. Essentially, it’s a win-win for all.

Why does it matter that the organization is about learning?

 

1. Enabiling Skill Growth

Workplace learning has been described as an active and continual filling of human minds with information that enables them to grow. When an organization supports this effort, it’s pouring industry relevant information into the minds of employees, who are able to transfer this knowledge to better work practices. 

2. Enhancing Community Values

Another reason why organizations need to implement learning and development programs is because they are influencing the culture and values of the community. Starting with the employees they manage, they are building certain values into the hearts and minds of everyone. Cultural values can be a powerful influencer in making a difference in the world.

3. Improving Buisness Digilization 

In terms of organizational benefits, a learning organization is one that is adaptable and able to handle the challenges of changing business atmospheres. As new technology and improved processes come along, well-trained employees can put them to use immediately. This is a clearly a competitive advantage. The business that is always thinking ahead stays afloat while a business set in old ways of doing things will falter.

4. Supporting Employee Engagement 

A learning culture is also one that supports employees and their career dreams, therefore it’s much more positive. This can improve employee morale and retention rates dramatically. Employees who understand their employer is invested in their professional success speaks volumes in terms of performance. Learning also has the power to break down barriers between “silos” of employees, adding to the collective nature of projects and future initiatives.

 

As you build your own learning organization, remember that learning and development help employees to develop strong working practices and performance that’s aligned with company goals. Make learning and technology solutions a part of your organization.
