Course recommendation: Learning at Work
This short course provides you with the essential tips for learning. Make learning a part of your busy work life! The tutorial focuses on learning conditions and environments, best practices, and reflecting on learning.

Moreover, a curious and learning-oriented lifestyle effectively reduces stress and fuels motivation.

Align Strategy and Learning through Competency Management

Course recommendation: Managing Competencies and Learning
Competency management is strategic work, involving consideration of the organization’s strategic objectives alongside employee competencies and development — steering towards the future. It enhances employees’ technical skills, work efficiency, and job satisfaction while also bolstering the organization’s human capital. However, learning is often perceived to only occur during formal training sessions. Why is this the case? How can you effectively increase the visibility of learning and manage competencies amidst work?
