Corporate learning is the gateway to building a better workforce, regardless of your organization’s size or scope. It provides employees with the opportunity to learn new skills, enriching company culture while simultaneously improving company output.
While every organization is different, professionals involved in corporate learning should keep the following tips in mind when designing their program:
- Invest in the hiring process: Create a hiring strategy that will ensure attraction and retention of top performers/employees.
- Utilize existing employees to train colleagues: Identify top-performing employees and ask them to work with their colleagues to help foster leadership development opportunities.
- Understand and adapt to different learning styles: Offer content accessible for every learning style when crafting a corporate learning program.
- Blend formal and informal learning practices: Provide plenty of educational opportunities using formal and informal learning.
- Keep content consumable: Ensure educational content fits neatly into natural breaks in the workday by using microlearning. To help with this step, EBSCO is giving its readers a free trial of our microlearning platform, Accel5.
