Ideas for Employee Learning Week 12-3 to 12-7

16 Nov 2012 4:31 PM | Susan Weinschenk

We took Employee Learning Week to heart last year and had several creative, fun, engaging, things for our employees to participate in. These were not required. We did offer small prizes for participating.

  • Kick off email from CEO announcing the celebration
  • Request for inspirational quotes about learning that we could post throughout the year on the Learning Center page on our intranet
  • Promoted tracking process we use to capture employee learning outside of our doors (workshops, conferences, study groups, etc)
  • Invitation to use one of our resources and provide a review of the experience in a discussion board (library books, learning style evaluations, online demos for products, system tutorials from our vendors, etc)
  • Release and promotion of a simple career planning tool to spark a conversation between managers and staff
  • Custom quiz in our online learning site that covered the various ways people can learn at our company

Tell us what you've done or plan to do so we can try to improve our week.

    At Crescent Electric, once again this year we are sending an email to everyone each day of Employee Learning week. The subject line is "Celebrate Learning." Each day's email contains a SHORT tip or two that provides info on how to do something OR points them to a way to find training. This year we are offering a Bonus Tip every day so that people who already know the main tip can have something else to learn. Also new this year are links to some internal Articulate modules for interactive learning opportunities. None take longer than 5 minutes, most last 1-2 minutes. Some topics: how to change your email signature to conform with company standards; how to use the online appraisal system to document successes at work; how to add websites to your Favorites list; how to access the new LMS; a list of links for free online product training and how to access them throughout the year.
