All learning and development programs are based on Charles Jennings’ 70-20-10 principle. The workplace is the most powerful learning environment in which to excel. With 70% of learning interventions taking place in the workplace, gaining relevant practical experience is crucial for learning. Each learning trajectory contains several practical situations along with actual case histories, and we encourage various forms of knowledge sharing.
The advantage of learning in the workplace is that it is always seamlessly connected to the current developments in your organization. We take all stakeholder perspectives into account – leadership teams, team members, customers – in the creation of the learning programs well as in the ongoing learning process. We also involve existing structures (consultation), systems and practical cases.
Online learning is an important part of workplace learning, and gives participants experience in working with new media. Online learning is always tailored to your organization, product, or even to the individual, in terms of look, feel and content. If desired, we are able to offer online learning in a blended form by including extra assignments on the workfloor.
We provide tools for workplace learning, for example job aids, quick-reference cards and learning tools. Learning tools might consist of a short theoretical explanation, an assignment or an instruction, or reference to other relevant information (videos, etc.). The purpose of the learning tool is to provide employees with tools to discuss the themes themselves.
We always work with an individual development plan, centring the employee as the owner of their own learning process. This ensures self-management and talent development. The basis of the individual development plan is this: just in time, just in place, just enough. We work adaptively; employees only learn the things that they need to develop. Working with an individual development plan makes the learning results visible. The employee and manager make clear agreements on learning objectives and output, creating a shared responsibility during the learning process.
Workplace learning also contributes to a positive learning culture in your organization. As part of workplace learning we encourage knowledge-sharing, learning from and with each other through co-creation. Participants are guided by practical counsellors and mentors in the workplace. Through the ongoing exchange of success stories and practical examples, learning contributes to a culture in which continuous improvement and excellence are central.
