The insights below in the page 40 of the report from students of the leading business school EM Lyon, Yahya Bennani, Chloé Mathieu, Yueming Mu, Hugo Petit, caught the attention of the WAP Community:

We saw that a larger part of trainings in companies were happening collectively which shows that, companies prefer to organize training in groups to increase efficiency of teamwork. We thought that it will be a great innovation if Artips create learnings to do in groups on their platform. In fact, employees could learn and interact together on topics rather than doing their trainings individually.

Well, that’s exactly what We Are Peers does! As the founder and CEO of WAP CommunityDiane LENNE wrote on Harvard Business Review about reinventing workplace learning through peer learning:

To cope with traditional corporate training, peer learning is emerging as a new way of upskilling workers.

Diane LENNE shares more about this organic movement in her insightful article:

Some companies have already adopted this pedagogy as a learning method. BlaBlaCar displays the value of sharing on its walls: “Share more, learn more”. “This slogan encourages everyone to share. You can go and see anyone in society and ask him a question, he will do everything he can to help you and teach you things (…) “, explained in an interview Frédéric Mazzella, president and founder of the platform. Others, like Google, go even further. The Internet giant has implemented the Googler to GooglerPeer Learning Program, workplace learning sessions run by employees for employees.

How about your organization to propel peer learning?

What if your organization imagine small groups that walk through open spaces for a few intense hours of exchange. In the cafeteria, in the hall, everyone can discuss topics that concern them, identified and prepared beforehand. Each session is evaluated at the end by the peers according to criteria of learning, interactivity and quality of the documentation. The deliverables of these forums are transformed interactions, concrete proposals and action plans to positively change the organization and a new collective energy. — Diane Lenne
