Having learning paths at the ready for common learning opportunities offers multiple benefits:
Your L&D team can curate learning experiences that reflect your organization’s culture.
When multiple individuals upskill from the same source material, they share a common language and set of expected behaviors.
- You can offer individual upskilling in learning communities, creating connections between workers who might otherwise not interact with one another. LinkedIn data shows that employees who learn in community are more successful and feel a deeper sense of belonging.
