Case 5 : How Formal and Informal Training Complement Lifelong Learning for Professional and Personal Growth (2008)

This case study focuses on employees of the Dofasco steel plant located in Hamilton, Ontario. Dofasco has created and fostered a learning culture by providing some of the most progressive training programs in the industry, such as the Dofasco Essential Skills Program, which offers learning opportunities for employees in the areas of reading, writing, computers, and other essential skills. Participants in this study were selected because of their commitment to continuous learning offered through the formal training courses of the Essential Skills Program. All of these same participants also learned informally at the workplace through various methods. In this study, the author examines the strong link between the formal training these employees received at work and their commitment to lifelong learning outside of the classroom.
