Building a Culture of Learning


Published on

Skillsoft’s Global Leader Forum is an exclusive group of customers who have proven strategies of success around Engagement, Alignment, Adoption and Value – the Four Building Blocks of Learning and Talent Success. As part of the Forum, these clients regularly collaborate with other leading organizations and to share best practices, resources and tips within the new Client Community portal. They are also invited to participate quarterly in short research efforts around key topics that are of interest to the Skillsoft and industry-wide learning and talent communities.

Our 2016 Spring research topic was dedicated to the challenges and opportunities of building a successful and strategic learning culture. Our leaders shared their definition of a true learning culture, who is the owner of an organization’s learning culture, as well as what barriers stand in the way of a strong learning culture. Lastly, and most importantly, we learned what business outcomes they have seen positively impacted by having a strong learning culture.
