Workplace learning is broadly defined as the acquisition of knowledge or skills by formal or informal means that occurs in the workplace.
The workplace itself can be a significant and rich source of learning. Workers today face the twin challenges of dealing with exponential and continuously expanding levels of knowledge as well as the advent of digitalisation.
With so much change around us that affect the way we work, there is a need to foster a sustainable workplace learning culture to drive the workforce be self-driven learners and build capabilities to keep pace with change, and organisations can help their staff learn at work through putting in place processes and practices that help their workforce people learn effectively at work.
Recent research on learning has surfaced a 70:20:10 model of learning; 70% of our learning comes from working on-the-job or from our experiences at the workplace, 20% of our learning comes from observing, being coached and mentored by others while 10% of our learning comes from attending classes or formal learning programmes.
As such, there is a drive towards strengthening learning from our experiences at the workplace and from receiving effective coaching and mentoring.
