To increase awareness about the strategic value of learning in organizations, the Association for Talent Development (ATD) has declared December 7-11, 2015, as “Employee Learning Week.” This is an opportunity for organizations to showcase the important link between developing employees’ skills and achieving organizational results.


ATD research shows that organizations continue to invest in growing the knowledge and skills of their workforce. “Increasingly, business leaders realize that the most important asset in our knowledge economy is talent, and a skilled workforce is the key to realizing results. We encourage all organizations to demonstrate their commitment to learning by recognizing Employee Learning Week,” says Tony Bingham, ATD President and CEO.
