     Creating a Culture of Lifelong Learning in the Workplace

    Lifelong learning is the "ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated" pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship, and personal development, but also self-sustainability, as well as competitiveness and employability.

    As an employer, how do we create an environment of Lifelong Learning? And why? What is the business case for providing ongoing Professional Development?

    First, engagement, innovation and professional growth are all improved in learning organizations which impacts the growth and productivity of the entire company. Secondly, studies continue to prove that employees are continually leaving companies that don’t support their personal development and provide leadership opportunities. Both are compelling reasons to create a lifelong learning culture.

    Please note: This month only, we will be meeting directly next to the Hilton Garden Inn, at East End, Akron: Premier Redevelopment of the Historic Goodyear Campus.
