BusinessU: 70:20:10 Employee Development Strategies to Strengthen your Workplace Culture

May 17, 2018
8:00am - 10:00am


The 70:20:10 model for learning and development is a commonly used formula within the training profession to describe the optimal sources of learning by successful managers. It holds that individuals obtain 70 percent of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20 percent from interactions with others, and 10 percent from formal educational events. The model’s creators hold that hands-on experience (the 70 percent) is the most beneficial for employees because it enables them to discover and refine their job-related skills, make decisions, address challenges and interact with influential people such as bosses and mentors within work settings. They also learn from their mistakes and receive immediate feedback on their performance. With generational shifts, advancements during the information age and today’s movement towards artificial intelligence and automation, organizations and employees need to adjust their attitude and approach to learning in order to adapt to economic and workplace changes.

This interactive workshop will highlight practices, programs and flexible educational options that organizations and employees can begin to embed into their workplace culture and individual development program.
