ABSTRACT
This article discusses a study conducted by SHL on how businesses can better support learning and development programmes. The study identified four key learning competencies which include seeking opportunities to learn, seizing opportunities to learn, planning for learning, and learning from feedback. These building blocks for effective learning provide managers with the opportunity to turn everyday work tasks into development opportunities to help support training on an ongoing basis.
