16th – 20th May 2016 is Learning at Work Week, an annual awareness campaign organised by the Campaign for Learning.
Learning at Work Week highlights the importance and benefits of learning and development in the workplace and continuous learning has been shown to have a positive affect upon health.
Learning opens up new opportunities and can enrich your life both personally and professionally. Taking part in learning activities can increase your motivation and productivity at work and leave you with the overall feeling of satisfaction and achievement that comes from learning something new.
This year’s theme is “Connection” so why don’t you take the challenge this week to connect, or even re-connect, with yourself, a colleague, friend or opportunity that will help you to learn and develop.
Workplaces are becoming more supportive of learning and development so take advantage of this campaign and learn something new at work.
Take part in a webinar, get involved in professional networking, business communications or health and safety, anything new that will enhance your personal development.
Learning at Work Week is the perfect opportunity not only to gain professional qualifications or skills, but also a way of making yourself more employable. You can progress and reach new targets in your work and personal life and it can also provide an opportunity to review your progress and set goals for the future.
