How to Build a Learning Culture to Inspire Employee Growth

Thursday, August 15, 2019, 1:00 pm CT

Do you know the No. 1 area of investment for HR in 2019? It’s employee training and development, according to a study by Payscale.

Why? Because, constant change in the modern workplace demands employees to continuously adapt and learn new skills. LinkedIn’s talent research shows that half of the most in-demand skills today didn’t even make the list just three years ago.

Employees and employers are both recognizing the need for training and development. In fact, LinkedIn reports that 94 percent of employees say that they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their career development.

So how do you create a culture for learning at your company that inspires employees to grow?

In this webinar, experts from BizLibrary and The Predictive Index will share their expertise on:

  • Why you should invest in employee learning and development
  • How to motivate your employees to make time for their growth
  • How to create a culture that facilitates learning
