10 Ways to Celebrate Learning @ Work
September is Learning @ Work Month here in Canada.
Learning @ Work Month offers an opportunity to reinforce your commitment to employee development by promoting learning activities that can range from non-work related and interest-led activities through award ceremonies to business focused sessions.
I have experienced some great sessions as part of Learning @ Work, however one of the biggest challenges organizations can face is thinking of ideas that are affordable and relatively easy to organize. With this in mind I’ve listed below some great ideas that I’ve used myself and won’t break the bank. Feel free to adapt these ideas to your own organization.
Educate another department about your work area
Run a short session on a particular topic e.g. how to cope with disruptive customers
Ask the CEO to talk about their experiences as a leader
Shadow a colleague from a different department
Create a short competition to engage staff, e.g. a quiz
Learn a new skill, either work or non-work related e.g watercolour painting
Run a teambuilding exercise
Hold a lunch event to celebrate a notable success in your organization
Show a selected TED talk and have a discussion about the talk
Invite an external speaker to give a talk to your team
Whatever you choose to do, get together with your work colleagues and help each other out, this way it will also be more fun and social!
