Everyone loves workplace learning. It means two days away from the office with the potential for a decent lunch! But it shouldn’t actually involve ‘learning’, should it?
In this week’s episode of The GoodPractice Podcast, Nick Shackleton-Jones from PA Consulting joins Ross G and Owen to ask if we need to reposition workplace learning so that it can truly make a difference in our colleagues’ lives. We ask what ‘proper’ L&D would look like, and discuss the importance of discomfort.
