It’s a fact: Organizations with a strong learning culture outperform the competition. And the numbers don’t lie:

  • 34% more employee productivity
  • 26% greater ability to deliver quality products
  • 39% more likely to innovate

Indeed, an amazing 46% of overall improved business outcomes track back to organizations with high-impact learning cultures. It’s no wonder why companies like SAP, Apple, Zappos, and Pixar have soared to the top of their industries and are also widely known for creating work environments where learning is highly valued and nurtured.

But creating a culture of learning takes work. What kind of work?

Join Maya Garza, Senior Behavioral Scientist at BetterUp, for an interactive session that will answer your questions about creating and fostering a learning culture in your organization.

Potential questions could include:

  • Why is creating a learning culture so critical?
  • How do I develop and foster a learning culture at my organization?
  • How can learning & development help anyone in my organization flourish, even when the culture is in transition?

Maya will answer as many of your questions as possible, so be sure to submit them ahead of time.
