"INCREASINGLY, BUSINESS LEADERS REALIZE THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT ASSET IN OUR KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY IS TALENT, AND A SKILLED WORKFORCE IS KEY TO REALIZING RESULTS. WE ENCOURAGE ALL ORGANIZATIONS TO DEMONSTRATE THEIR COMMITMENT TO LEARNING BY RECOGNIZING EMPLOYEE LEARNING WEEK."

- Tony Bingham, ATD President and CEO 

Employee Learning Week 2017 will be held December 4-8.

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!  

WHERE IS IT?

Employee Learning Week events can happen anywhere! Hold events in your office or plan a special off-site program.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

Training is more important now than ever before. The growing skills gap and increased need to compete in today's economy require organizations to develop a knowledgeable and highly skilled workforce.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

All organizations are encouraged to recognize Employee Learning Week by rededicating themselves to employee learning.
