Social learning is the hot topic in Human Resources, but more often than not, attempts at engaging employees in collaborative learning is a failure.
How can you ensure that social learning is successful in your organization? We’ve boiled it down to 4 important rules:
- Empowering Employees to Learn: Set expectations early on for how often and in what form employees are expected to further their professional development.
- Empowering Employees to Share: Encourage employees to facilitate the flow of knowledge and information between coworkers, peers, and departments by allowing informal training sessions and 1:1 relationships.
- Providing the Tools: Employees need a way to connect and share through a reliable and user-friendly collaborative platform.
- Recognizing the Effort: Track and reward social learning and participation to ensure that employees and managers alike see the value and continue to share.
