A lot of employees view L&D as a box-ticking exercise. In this mindset, onboarding and learning is just another HR task to be completed. It isn’t seen as being connected to the day-to-day reality of business, and it isn’t taken as seriously as it should be.
So, what can you do to change this perception? How can you get people to pay attention to L&D and see their training as an integral part of your business operations?
That’s exactly what Jeremy Lane, Director of L&D at Electronic Components Distributor TTI, has done. Recently, I had the chance to chat to Jeremy about how he changed people’s perceptions of L&D, and how other companies can learn from his example.
We kicked things off by talking about a key concept for L&D at TTI: operational legitimacy.
