Today’s employees don’t want to just collect a paycheck. They want to grow in their work. That’s great news for managers and HR departments, who can capitalize on the hunger to learn through self-driven skills development. That way, employees can learn skills that are valuable to them while also motivating themselves to pursue it—the better to make sure they’re genuinely interested.
That said, employers still play a big role. Today’s companies need to provide well-sourced, well-considered content and help drive motivation to ensure that employees gain truly valuable skills. Then, employees take over from there.
