Episode Title: The Learners Own the Future
There’s a huge competitive advantage for organizations that prioritize a strong culture of learning at work. Here’s why, coming up next.
Ep 165 show:
Welcome to The Perna Syndicate! Today, it’s become essential that all generations evolve along with their role at work. The ability to continually absorb new information and translate that knowledge into productive, innovative work is critical.
While Gen-Z is leading the way in learning new workplace skills, the challenges over the past year have forced all generations to think differently about what it takes to stay ahead. LinkedIn’s recent Workplace Learning Report show that employees are eager to improve their skills and not become stagnant.
Companies that cultivate a strong culture of learning will create a competitive advantage when it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent. The goal should be to foster an environment where employees—young and perhaps not so young—can continually up their game.
Ultimately, a strong culture of learning at work isn’t just about the learning itself. It’s about the positive outcomes that learning produces. An agile and continually improving workforce is its own reward, with benefits like better products and solutions, improved internal mobility, less turnover, the ability to attract diverse talent, and happier and more engaged employees.
As everything continues to change around us, those committed to continually learning are the ones who will own the future.
