If you were to ask the CEOs of many of today’s top companies to “show you the money” like that famous scene in Jerry Maguire, they’re likely to bring out their most talented, highly trained and knowledgeable employees and then talk at length about the essential value of corporate learning. That’s right. Not their newest product, venture funding or strategic location. Instead: learning and knowledge.
That’s because today’s most dynamic companies—including a diverse range from Google and Twitter to Wegmans and REI—are deeply committed to learning. They see information sharing and an unwavering commitment to educating their employees as the catalyst for their thriving internal cultures, their intensely loyal employees, and their consistent surpassing of all measures of success.
