Employee Learning week is an awareness campaign highlighting the important connection between learning and achieving organizational results.
"Increasingly, business leaders realize that the most important asset in our knowledge economy is talent, and a skilled workforce is key to realizing results. We encourage all organizations to demonstrate their commitment to learning by recognizing Employee Learning Week." - Tony Bingham, ATD President and CEO
Employee Learning Week 2014 is December 1-5.

On the last day of the week, Crescent Electric celebrated and congratulated all the staff who completed rigorous training programs from the past year by posting a list for all to see.
