Providing quality training for your employees is of the utmost importance but research by Deloitte shows that to really gain a competitive advantage in business you must look at the entire corporate learning strategy.
What exactly does this mean? In addition to basic corporate learning, a business must look at the big picture and add talent practices and a ‘culture of learning’ into the mix. Learning culture is probably the most important asset a company can build.
Employees that invent and innovate must not only be very capable technically, but they need to have the freedom to learn and share what they’ve learned in an open environment. This is the level of corporate learning that companies should strive for.
Let’s take a look at the four stages of corporate learning:
One of the most important tools for level four organizations is knowledge sharing and building a culture of learning.
Knowledge sharing and culture go hand-in-hand. We know that conveying culture involves displaying our work, our ideas and opinions as well as giving and receiving feedback.
So, how can a business improve their corporate learning strategy through culture in SharePoint? While SharePoint won’t create a culture of collaboration per se, it will be a great platform from which participation can become a vehicle for collaboration.
If we learn culture best through participation, opportunities for participation need to be offered. SharePoint has a number of “out-of-the-box” applications and features that can be used to offer opportunities to participate.
SharePoint is known for its supreme content management capabilities but it’s also the perfect vessel to utilize for knowledge sharing within an organization. Key features in SharePoint include Mysites, team and community sites, social tagging, blogging, discussion boards, newsfeeds and the list goes on. For corporate learning that is one step ahead of the training game, consider amping up your usage of SharePoint and utilize a broad scope of tools that will improve your employee engagement outcomes.
Who wants to be at stage one or two on the corporate learning ladder? What if we told you that you can be one of the few companies to get to stage four and stay there? The secret is in a training hybrid of SharePoint and an LMS.
