How to Encourage Learning in Your Organization

“Only 40% of workers agreed that their manager helps them to understand what skills they need to advance in their careers. More than 1 in 5 (22%) workers said their managers do not encourage or enable learning at all, and just 17% said their managers help create a plan or set goals for developing skills.”

Kelly Palmer explores how to encourage learning in your organization and recommends three tactics including to establish learning plans, let employees choose what and how to learn, and to model learning behavior.
