Employee Learning Week (ELW), is December 8 – 12. Initiated by the American Society of Training and Development (ASTD), ELW is an awareness campaign highlighting the important connection between learning and achieving organizational results. Employee Learning Week is the perfect opportunity to promote the importance of the WLP profession in closing the skills gap. If your organization has a great training and development program, give yourself a bit pat on the back! Congratulations! If your organization has been meaning to start working on its Training & Development program, now’s as good a time as ever to actually start working on it!
Start small. Get a group of people together and have a lunch and learn–a casual meeting lasting just an hour where the topic is limited and everyone contributes. You might just be surprised as to how empowering and energizing these lunches can be. Get started now!
