This Episode: How To Build A Learning Culture

This week, Lucinda talks about developing a learning culture, a task that may be a little more challenging now that so many of us are working in a hybrid environment. How do we create a sense of engagement with our workers remotely? In this week’s show, Lucinda offers some practical ways in which you can ensure that learning remains a vital part of your business culture in the new working landscape.

Valuable Resources

Key Takeaways

  • Fewer than half of UK employees feel that their job offers them good opportunities to develop their skills. Is it reasonable to assume that a job provides development?
  • Indeed, a learning culture is defined as an environment where learning is not only embedded, but encouraged across every level of the organisation.
  • The main block to a learning culture generally tends to be time. Employees do not perceive that they have time away from their tasks in order to develop. 
  • Certainly, at a line manager level, we must examine the “buy-in” quality that they have. Is there lack of enthusiasm for their teams to develop, a product of their own lack of development?

Best Moments

  • ‘Just because you’re very familiar with something, doesn’t mean that other people are familiar with it’
  • ’Simplify rather than complicate’
  • ’Simply changing a form or process isn’t going to fix the problem’
  • ‘Managing people does require us to talk to them more than once a year’
