Too often, the hustle of the workday leaves little room for learning. However, promoting a learning culture is beneficial both for individuals and the organization. It’s revealed that employees who engage in learning activities are 47% less stressed and feel 39% more productive.
So, how can we bridge the gap?
The trick lies in eradicating the boundary between work and learning, by introducing a frictionless learning experience.
Smooth Sailing into Continuous Learning
It’s common knowledge that multitasking can hinder productivity. Shifting focus between tasks leaves a residue of distraction. This implies that urging employees to switch to a learning platform amidst a hectic workday could be counterproductive.
Ideally, learning should complement work, not compete with it. The key is to integrate them seamlessly.
Here’s what integrated learning can resemble:
- Guided Onboarding: Applications often offer a ‘tour’ upon first use, spotlighting crucial features. This concept could be extended to a work environment. New employees could be guided through essential platforms and tools, sparing the seasoned ones who might already be familiar with them.
- Learning on Demand: Incorporating built-in learning tools within the software employees use daily could allow for instant troubleshooting and learning, without the need to switch contexts.
- Holistic Integration: By melding the entire learning platform with work tools, like Microsoft Teams, employees can effortlessly search, access, and share learning materials. This isn’t confined to platform-specific learning but encompasses all learning content.
