Lifelong learning has been recognized as an economic imperative, as automation, AI, and modern work models reconfigure the business world. Eighty percent of CEOs now say their greatest business obstacle is the need for new skills.
It was already a daunting job to develop and deliver interactive learning opportunities for staff. It gets much more complicated in the remote working atmosphere. Even though learning has already gone digital and mobile, thanks to technology. Micro-learning, hyper-personalized learning, and mixed learning have become very prevalent already.
Learning is not a practice distinct from work, but one that arises as a result of work and in the workflow. We have shown that when people do their jobs, a large percentage of what a person learns at work happens informally, constantly, in the flow of work.
In other words, informal learning is not something that needs to be planned and handled, but rather something that needs to be encouraged and developed as it happens spontaneously at work to help individuals learn to do their jobs.
To sum up, studying in the workplace offers an opportunity to broaden the awareness and abilities of all workers. It can help with the mission and vision of the organization and is recommended as a tool to involve employees and invest in the company’s growth.
