Why not a new approach to help your teams thrive?

Based on research of today’s employees, Google’s Chief Learning Officer Brian Glaser in a recent article on Fast Company discusses three recommendations for businesses:
- Be a destination for development. In a McKinsey study, employees rate learning opportunities as their third-highest motivator behind job growth and pay, but ahead of benefits, flexibility, and paid time off. More than 70% of staff apply for internal opportunities, but almost as many express confusion about how to grow in their careers.
- Prioritize hands-on learning and experimentation. Multiple studies say most learning happens on the job. The opportunities to learn are all around us if we pause and look for lessons in the moment. Leaders can ask in team and individual meetings, “What did we learn?”
- Do more to create thriving communities. College is full of communal experiences outside of dorm life. Group projects, clubs, and exchange programs convene people who wouldn’t ordinarily interact to create moments of connection, belonging, and unexpected discovery. Creating opportunities for employees boosts collaboration and creativity.
Learning is all about experimentation and new experiences. Using the best of higher education as inspiration, employers can accelerate learning to support employee growth and development.
