Should L&D/HR be Architects of Lifelong Learning in the Workforce?

901 views

Published on

The Economist dedicated a January 2017 issue to Lifelong Learning, bringing to fore the need for everyone to be Lifelong Learners due to rapid changes in jobs and the skills required for them.

Lifelong Learning is here to stay. While individuals need to take responsibility to keep their capabilities up to date, organisations can support them by helping them create a mindset and skills for Lifelong Learning. L&D can be the architects by providing support and tools while being the advocate for Lifelong Learning.

In this webinar, we discuss if L&D currently advocates or has the mandate to support Lifelong Learning and how best they can achieve this.

They become engaged, active learners. •Curating the best material— There’s already so much good material online. Leverage it and find the best to share with your teams. •Sparking conversations— Find material, or create new questions / ideas for your organization that spark people to have more conversations about new ways of doing things. •Connecting people, resources, tools

  25. 25. Why organisations should invest in making employees lifelong learners. i.e. what is in it for them? Is Life Long Learning Important?
  26. 26. Why? 1. People grow, business grows constantly + organically 2. Context of control and power has gone or should be gone 3. And, most importantly, because businesses are part of society, not just the recipients of the resources. Building resources (economic and social) is an important role.
