The problem with losing ‘osmosis learning’

‘The problem with losing “osmosis learning”‘, BBC Worklife by Anna Jones.

As we shift to a more hybrid way of working, the way we think about learning must shift with us.

As we are increasingly thinking about how to maximise the collaborative and co-operative function of the office, leaders must be intentional in how space, proximity and encounters are designed.

Intentionality is key in ensuring that osmosis-learning in our organisations is designed around a hybrid workstyle. Learning is not tied to a physical location, but rather our ability to connect to, observe, and learn from others – so whether we are working in-person or remotely, leaders must ensure their people can make the most of their connections to learn effectively.
