Liza Taylor, Director of Talent Development for Hulu
Social learning is creating a fundamental shift in how people work and is a new buzz word.
With more than 80% of North Americans using social media [Forrester] there is a new
focus on the intermingling of ideas, information and experiences to produce learning. By
leveraging our organization’s collective wisdom we can build internal bench-strength by
better mirroring how people are already learning and communicating today.
Classrooms and top down learning programs can no longer contain all the learning
required to do our jobs. Research shows that no one person is as smart as the collective,
therefore a new imperative exists to leverage team members broadly as both consumers
and creators of content. And with potentially half the workforce made up of Millennials
by 2014, there is a broad expectation to use technology in new and unique ways to meet
their learning expectations.
