If we slightly change Heraclitus quote in the business as apart of life we can say: „The only constant in business is change.“

As we see, learning is the key component in the managing change in the business. Companies that want to be competitive on the market should take in consideration this need and think about introducing culture of learning. It is important that our culture of learning is driving our organization forward by increasing performance and success.
There are a lot of definitions on culture of learning, but the one I like the most is definition gave Josh Bersin states: „Learning culture covers the topic of what drives individual and organizational learning outside of traditional training. This includes reward systems, coaching, leadership, reflection, and other systemic topics that drive organizational learning and agility.“

There will be no positive and vibrant culture of learning if we do not also have a culture that is safe for taking risks and making mistakes. Both sides can invest in learning and development time and money but it will not be successful if:
Everybody is talking about millennials nowadays because they are becoming the core part of the workforce and they are deemed as hardly managed group. If you know that learning opportunities for them are the #1 factor in selecting a job than you, as business owner or L&D professional or HR in the company, have to know that culture of learning has to be the present and the future of your company.
