On one hand there has been an increased adoption of technology-enabled learning in the workplace, while on the other, organizations still struggle to see the value of (investing in) corporate L&D programs, especially when it comes to return on investment (ROI). This has led to wrongfully founded fears about corporate L&D amidst the organizations and employees, most of which often tend to be learning myths that impact employee career growth and development, customer experience and business results in the long run.
Despite research results and considerable attention, large numbers of myths are still endorsed by the L&D community. These learning myths cause organizations to invest in approaches that either waste time and money or hinder learning, which harms both the field and the learners.
