  • Engaging better and remembering more of what is learned.
  • Sharing knowledge and getting creative with colleagues during group learning.
  • Supporting and encouraging each other to make positive changes and grow.

Actions for HR + people leaders:

  • Develop a live learning program to boost employee engagement and learning retention.
