Establishing A Virtual Learning Culture, And Sustaining It

Many organizations across industries look at “training” as a one-off event. That is, they do not consider that ongoing learning, with the right leadership support, yields both high performance and—the difficult to achieve—excellence. On the other hand, some organizations have ongoing (virtual) learning tactics in place. However, they lack the strategies to create a strong learning culture. We refer to a culture where learning is a constant and consistent feature, tied to performance, and even career development.

No matter the current state of their learning culture, organizations need strategies for managing cultural change, starting with gaining buy-in—from all levels of leadership as well as employees!

This webinar will provide strategies that make establishing and sustaining a learning culture—either virtual or not—in your organization less daunting and more digestible.

During this session, you will learn:

  • Change management strategies and how to gain buy-in for a learning culture from the grassroots up
  • Ways to increase the dividends of learning
  • How to incorporate ongoing learning into your organization’s brand
  • Virtual personalization methods to achieve right-time, right-audience, right-behaviors learning
  • Measurement strategies for managers to link just-right employee learning to performance metrics and career development
  • How to apply both push and pull learning methods in a hybrid training and performance learning experience
  • Technology tactics and platforms that can both provide the foundation of the (virtual) learning culture and ensure learning measurement and sustainment



One-off training often short-changes the investment. Without a learning culture backing up the "training," it’s easy for employees to regress back to the mean; but establishing a learning culture isn’t out of reach. There is low-hanging but high-impact fruit—doable strategies that lay the foundation for a learning culture with efficient returns.
