When it comes to managing food safety-related risks there are so many leaders of food operations STILL offering compliance training programs only: the question remains do these leaders value learning or simply want to make sure they meet compliance?
This approach fails on several fronts: it does not provide employees with the skills they need for performing their job well now and in the future; lacks the required processes when employees learn new skills and behaviours; does not address the development of the best employees for future roles and leads to employee dissatisfaction and poor levels of performance and productivity.
Modern approaches to learning in the workplace necessitate a model of continuous learning and supporting employee learning — it moves beyond designing and delivering one-off training programs.
Peter Senge, is a legendary thought leader who introduced the concept of ‘A learning organisation’ and believes companies need to create an environment where people continually expand their knowledge to create the results they truly desire, where insightful thinking and new ideas for complex issues are encouraged and supported, where collective goal setting is advocated and where people are continually learning how to learn together. Peter M. Senge, The Fifth Discipline: The Art & Practice of The Learning Organization.
A culture of learning every day achieves real results – and the actions of workplace leaders shape it.
