Employee Learning Week is an awareness campaign highlighting the important connection between learning and achieving organizational results.


Employee Learning Week typically takes place the first week of December. But, employee learning is a year round event!


Employee Learning Week events can happen anywhere! Hold events in your office or plan a special off-site program.


Training is more important now than ever before. The growing skills gap and increased need to compete in today's economy require organizations to develop a knowledgeable and highly skilled workforce.


All organizations are encouraged to recognize Employee Learning Week by rededicating themselves to employee learning.
