For most of us, the new year means new goals and new resolutions. Often, we make them to improve our personal or professional lives in some way—think increasing the number of steps you take in a day, or keeping a more organized home and office.
But there is another popular resolution circling around: learning.
Why is learning a good professional resolution?
Whether it is beginning to study a new language in your personal life or honing a skill in your work one, dedicating yourself to something new is always a good resolution. Learning “not only keeps one’s mind and body active, it also helps people adapt to any new or rapid changes. [Gaining knowledge about] new things keeps one motivated and relevant. It helps people grow in confidence and opens doors for new opportunities”.
Just as in 2020, this year will most certainly be filled more quick pivots and never before seen business scenarios—meaning adaptability and lifelong learning will be essential to staying ahead. Continuous learning is seen by leaders and employers as a ‘must have skill’ going forward, as gaining knowledge allows us to stay “relevant, agile, and forward thinking”.
How can your organization invest in employee learning?
Business leaders can and should devote resources to employee education, as an enterprise is only as adaptable as its workforce. A comprehensive learning tool can help businesses adapt to the everchanging work environment by supporting the various learning styles of employees. A complete learning tool will also include a live help component, to help the workforce troubleshoot day to day problems. This type of learning tool will help employees digital skill and upskill in a way that best suits them, while reducing the burden on an organization’s internal IT staff.
