The world around us is changing fast. Being skilled in a trade? That’s not enough now, for employees… So they have to show what they can do. That’s why stimulating employees to work on their own development is a great idea. Because it is getting impossible to keep up with the information overload in the HR or L&D departments. And ultimately, it is the employees themselves who know best what they need in order to perform well.
The great thing is that research shows that we are much more motivated when we have autonomy. Interests and ambition – they are the drivers for finding information. That is why UP favours learning solutions and a culture that encourage self-directed learning.
