The Learning Organization: Connecting the Workforce to Learning [Video – 6:45] (2010)

This video looks at how businesses develop into learning organizations, where a learning culture harnesses the talents of employees and contributes to productivity.

Specifically, the video focuses on two companies. Duha Color Group manufactures paint chips using colour-matching technology and paint-based printing processes, while Carte International makes transformers for electrical utilities, distributors, and large industrial clients.

Employees take part in training that is focused on building teamwork, critical thinking skills, and stronger communication, rather than teaching specific job-related skills. The employees emerge from the training as leaders, with greater awareness of their own abilities and the contribution they can make to the team.

The narrator points out that learning organizations are better able to recruit employees and to keep them, even when there are shortages of skilled labour.

The video was prepared by the Centre for Education and Work (CEW), a not-for-profit organization affiliated with Manitoba’s University of Winnipeg. The CEW combines adult learning theory with emerging technologies to develop customized adult training, specializing in online and blended learning.
