|Frequently Asked Questions
What is ELW?
Employee Learning Week is ASTD's national awareness campaign to highlight the important connection between learning and achieving organizational results. It is a time to demonstrate a commitment to this connection. As stakeholders of workforce development, it's a time to energize one another and rededicate ourselves to employee learning.
|When is it?
Employee Learning Week takes place yearly in December and this year ELW will be observed during the week of December 3-7, 2012.
| Where is it??
Employee Learning Events can happen anywhere. Hold events in your office, plan a special off-site program, or send highlighted Employee Learning tips during the week.
Training is more important now than ever before. The growing skills gap and the increased need to compete in today’s economy require organizations to develop a knowledgeable and highly skilled workforce. Employee Learning Week is the perfect opportunity for your organization to get involved and highlight their commitment to learning and development.
