“Opportunity to learn” is one of the top reasons for accepting a role


Companies face new challenges at a faster pace to attract and retain talent, increase productivity and deliver quality and consistency on ever tighter budgets.

Understanding the motivations and expectations of the futures generations of the workforce is only part of the challenge.


 Social Learning is the Key


The digital expectations of today’s workforce is a reality and is reflected in the attitudes that learners have towards their own learning and professional development.

74% of people think training at work is essential to their development.


Social learning theory places learning at the core of human existence and assumes that it is fundamentally a social phenomenon. Learning is the foundation of who we are (becoming). It is social because our human nature is social, not just because we interact with others or use certain tools.

Many of today’s employees see social learning as a means of improving their chances of promotion at work or giving them greater opportunities to find a new job.


Outside of their working lives, employees are flocking towards online social learning opportunities. In some cases, they are leaving their employers – and the outmoded learning management systems – behind.

More than half of 18-24-year olds say that access to training through MOOC*s would positively affect their decision to apply to a company. 58% of 18-24 year olds say access to MOOCs would impact their decision to stay with a company.
