Editor’s Note A recent HBR article titled “Why organizations don’t learn” looked at why companies struggle to become or remain “learning organizations”. Interestingly, the number 2 challenge to this situation is that organizations are not allowing time for reflection. They challenge that workers being “always on” does not allow time for reflection on successes and also what went wrong. Authors Gino and Staats summarize that although it may be cheaper and easier to ignore failures and any time for reflection, this will limit the learning opportunities for the organization. By allowing time for reflection, organizations could unleash true improvement as a learning entity. Read about this more in-depth in our Cover Article, The Role Of Reflection In Learning by Emma Weber. Organizations in the US spend up to $160 billion on formal employee training each year. Moreover, 70% of what employees are learning is forgotten within the first 24 hours after training is completed. How can we make training more efficient so that the skills learned are retained over time? Erin Boettge in her article, Why Training Programs Fail Without Training Reinforcement?, tells us how training reinforcement addresses the challenges of current training programs and is a must-have when training the modern learner. Moving on, we have Patrick Mullane’s What Employers Need To Know About Online Business Education and Scott Schneider’s Compliance Predictions Inspired By Social Media, among other handpicked features in this edition of Training and development Excellence Essentials.
