As human beings, we are constantly learning. While we work, we’re constantly getting better at our job skills and becoming more knowledgeable in our field. But we also learn from our experiences at work — how we interact with one another and our environment. Learning on the job is inevitable. Employers that embrace that fact and support their employees’ learning journey can help them develop faster and with more confidence.
At Code42, learning is a core part of our culture. This fall, we embraced that by launching a two-month program called “Learning for Life.” Our mission was to highlight the programs, resources and brilliant minds at Code42 through internal education sessions, keynote speakers and opportunities to learn something new. We encouraged curiosity and expanded perspectives for the amazing lifelong learners we are fortunate to employ. We were quite happy to hear the reactions of those who participated in the program:
“I enjoyed the variety of topics and that Code42 was intentionally planning content for this program,” said participant Eileen Potter. “This made me think about the ways I am continually learning. While I’ve always done that in my career, it’s really nice to have an employer actively supporting me with a learning culture.”
“I loved having the chance to hear from a variety of people throughout the company,” said attendee Beth Bornhoeft. “As someone who’s relatively new to the Code42, I felt like this was a chance to get a crash course in institutional knowledge. I found myself with a ton of takeaways that I can use in my job.”
As part of an incredibly dynamic tech industry, we at Code42 are committed to providing learning opportunities that are critical to our success and that of our employees. We know that, in order to remain competitive in the ever-changing market, we need to create an environment that is nimble, agile and flexible to keep pace. That means developing learning and training opportunities that support the personal and professional development of our people.
We believe that a learning mindset is a conscious choice on how to approach work and life. If we cultivate an environment that encourages trial and error as well as resilience and growth, we have a formula for success.
