During the week remind employees about all of the learning and talent development opportunities they can access. For more information and links to ELW materials, visit www.employeelearningweek.org.
WHAT IS EMPLOYEE LEARNING WEEK?
Employee Learning Week is an awareness campaign highlighting the important connection between learning and achieving organizational results.
WHEN IS IT?
Employee Learning Week typically takes place the first week of December. But, employee learning is a year round event!

company as successful as possible!
