Continuous learning is vital – everyone says so – but what does it mean for organisations? It’s not just about providing continuous training or making employees study continuously; it’s more about helping them establish a regular habit of learning.
Many bookshop chains in the United States have a coffee bar where shoppers can read in comfort with a pastry and a skinny latté or caramel macchiato.
A recent British initiative is turning this idea around and bringing the learning to pre-existing coffee shops. Pop-up colleges are appearing in branches of Costa Coffee as soon as the store ends its regular business day.
