What is Employee Learning Week?

Sponsored by the Association for Talent Development, Employee Learning Week is an awareness campaign highlighting the important connection between continuous learning and organizational development. This year, HR Learning & Development is partnering with Wellness & Work-Life, the Office of Information Technology, and Microsoft to encourage employees to take advantage of the many resources available right here at UA. New workshops, fun activities, professional development classes, and daily prizes will help foster an environment of energy, exploration and growth.

Recognize a Champion of Learning

Champions of Learning are individuals or teams that encourage individual and organizational development year-round. Perhaps they started a book club, shared a helpful learning tip at weekly meetings, established a goal for participating in professional development activities, or were the first to say, “We should team together to learn how to …!”  Have a team or individual in mind? We invite you to – Recognize a Champion of Learning.
