People have a built-in drive to explore, discover, learn and grow. It’s a human trait that exists in every one of us, and following that drive by making the time to learn is one of the most valuable investments anyone can make in themselves and their future.
Some experts refer to this ongoing personal education as “lifelong learning”. In business circles, it’s often called upskilling. But it doesn’t matter what you call it, what matters is that you invest the time to do it. That’s especially true for entrepreneurs, business owners, employers and employees. Being a lifelong learner, instilling a culture of lifelong learning in your business, and making learning and upskilling opportunities available to your employees are some of the most effective ways of ensuring your organisation is primed for consistently good performance and sustainable growth. Especially in today’s challenging operating environment.
Key to business success
After two years of massive shifts in the global business landscape, building a learning-focused, agile and adaptable business has never been more important, or more valuable, than it is today. Unfortunately many people and businesses overlook the value of upskilling because they believe that the high costs of education put it out of their reach. As an HP Platinum Partner, Digital Generation (DG) is committed to changing this perception. DG has always recognised the vital role that education and skills training has to play, not only in enabling people and businesses to achieve their full potential, but also to help drive the sustainable transformation of South Africa by building a skilled workforce that can make the maximum contribution to the country’s economic growth and development.
