Learning is at the core of Brainlabs' business and values. Their Learning at Work Week offers dedicated time for colleagues to learn, and will promote a fresh perspective on development with new content and formats. Each day will correspond to each of Brainlabs' values. Colleagues will explore and learn about growth mindsets, being speedy strategists, how to wow clients and work together as one team. Sessions include a leadership roundtable asking 'what does learning mean to you/?', understanding the UK Digital landscape and trends, and the importance of storytelling. There will be drop in sessions on the company's BrainlabsU which hosts all the learning on offer and a wrap up session on a senior colleague's learning journey and career.

From across the Society, colleagues are involved with designing and delivering over 30 sessions covering a wide range of topics from career goal setting through to learning more about 2 of our Board Members and their individual learning journeys! Having commitment at this level is fabulous and we are excited to get as many colleagues involved as we can. All the sessions will be recorded so nothing is missed and we'll evaluate the success after, along with sending out a few prizes! The Week will tie into the Society's overall Learning Strategy and promote the importance of #Alwayslearning as its very close to our hearts!

The team has also developed ‘one minute learns’. These quick learns aim to upskill colleagues so they can communicate more effectively through technology. And finally, to give everyone an opportunity to learn about themselves and the importance of teamwork, colleagues can take part in a virtual ‘escape room’ challenge!
