704 Multiplying Your L&D Capacity with Employee-Generated Learning
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, October 26
Management and Strategy
Tighter budgets, smaller L&D teams, and an increasing number of learning requests. You can’t do more with less. Or can you? L&D needs a new approach—and one that can be built in-house by leveraging internal expertise. What if there were an option for L&D to put the employees at the center of the learning ecosystem and enable them to drive and self-serve their training needs?
In this session, you’ll learn how an employee-generated learning (EGL) model can help L&D overcome these challenges and why it complements the existing L&D interventions. You’ll uncover how to practically implement EGL, and explore the best practices drawn from companies such as Nielsen, Unilever, and Electrolux. You’ll analyze the barriers and opportunities (including didactics and technical aspects) to implement EGL at scale. Finally, you’ll leave the session with actionable ideas on how to get started with this approach and an understanding of the suitability of this approach to your organization.
In this session, you will learn:
- What employee-generated learning (EGL) is, and what it can mean for your organization
- How to start the shift toward EGL
- Practical L&D applications and examples of EGL
- Challenges and opportunities when implementing EGL
