A lot of ink has been spilt over the issue of workplace learning: what it is, when and why it happens, and the impact it has on organizations. But what does it mean to learners themselves?

This week on the Good Practice Podcast,  Ross D is joined by Owen and Emerald Works CEO John Yates to discuss our forthcoming 'Learner Intelligence Report'. We cover:

  • what/who motivates learners to seek out development opportunities
  • the role L&D can play in facilitating self-directed learning
  • how Covid-19 has amplified or reversed the trends of the past few years
