How Can Companies Reinvent Employee Training? [Future Of Work]
As we explore social education programs in the workplace, PSFK asks readers to tell us how you and your co-workers are learning together.

If you're likely the majority of employees working today, then most likely not. An Accenture survey showed that only 21% of employees acquired new skills through a training program over the last five years.
While many learning initiatives are in place within organizations, which deliver benefits to both individuals and their companies, knowing which courses to take and how impactful they actually are requires more than access, incentives and available time. Companies need to rethink the overall design of their internal education plans to make them more effective and engaging. By socializing the way that knowledge is disseminated throughout an organization, companies are getting all of their stakeholders from management to first year employees.
