This week, Lucinda talks about developing a learning culture, a task that may be a little more challenging now that so many of us are working in a hybrid environment. How do we create a sense of engagement with our workers remotely? In this week’s show, Lucinda offers some practical ways in which you can ensure that learning remains a vital part of your business culture in the new working landscape.


  • Fewer than half of UK employees feel that their job offers them good opportunities to develop their skills. Is it reasonable to assume that a job provides development?
  • Indeed, a learning culture is defined as an environment where learning is not only embedded, but encouraged across every level of the organisation.
  • The main block to a learning culture generally tends to be time. Employees do not perceive that they have time away from their tasks in order to develop.
  • Certainly, at a line manager level, we must examine the “buy-in” quality that they have. Is there lack of enthusiasm for their teams to develop, a product of their own lack of development?


‘Development is a key aspect of employee engagement and making people feel valued'

‘Learning should be useful - it should be utilised in some way’

’They were learning, they just didn’t recognise it…'

’Step back and evaluate the overall learning environment that exists already'
