How to develop a learning culture?

“Change isn’t a one-off pit stop. It’s more of an open road trip, constantly evolving and demanding that you map out new routes on the fly” (Forbes, 2024).

In simplistic terms, a successful culture isn’t a destination, but rather an ongoing journey of continuous learning. At its core, your culture should be built on flexibility, agility, and innovation to navigate the twists and turns of your journey.

Traditional approaches often rely on reacting to change, leaving organisations struggling to keep up.

So how can we accelerate embedding learning into organisational culture?

Pecan’s co-founder, Andrew Loveless suggests that there are five cultural levers that cover most of the bases and will add up to a measurable difference.

It was such a pleasure to be surrounded by people who share a passion for creating a better workplace environment, and we thoroughly enjoyed hearing their inspiring stories that lead them to be finalists and winners. It’s wonderful to see just how far the movement towards a better workplace culture has come since we began over 11 years ago!
