Personal Learning Networks with social learning becoming more popular, several of their employees naturally use PLN's to support their development at work, effectively using associates and peers on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. Instant Messaging during the period under review, they have adopted a new company wide communication method to promote learning and development opportunities, internal vacancies and support with new system integration and learning. This platform also facilitates a new method of sharing information about beneficial training and development undertaken, sharing success stories etc. Information Sharing within their organisations intranet, they have developed a learning & development hub to share useful training and development material, documentation and content. As a number of these techniques are new, along with launch of the learning & development team, the true impact of the department and strategies are still to be evaluated, but as the above demonstrates positive pioneering steps at Babington are being taken to improve the opportunities for their people's growth and career aspirations.
