Improved Company Culture
Emphasizing continuing education creates a culture of lifelong learning where continuous improvement and growth are encouraged and celebrated. This positive culture fosters collaboration, knowledge sharing, and a sense of community among employees.
In her blog post, 20 Tips for Creating a Learning Culture in the Workplace, author Emma O’Neill cites an IBM study that focused on the value of employee training. That study showed that “84% of employees within the best-performing organizations are receiving the training they need compared with 16% in the worst-performing companies. And in another recent eLearning report, 94% of employees said investment in training and development is one of the major reasons they would decide to stay in a role longer.”
When learning becomes integral to your company’s DNA, employees become more proactive in seeking knowledge, exploring innovative ideas, and embracing change.
