Author Paul Matthewsabout this book: The engagement and performance capability of a workforce is critical to the survival and future success of any company and since most people learn informally (they set their own objectives and pull the information they need when they need it). It makes sense for companies to improve their informal learning environment by removing the blocks to learning; improving the learning culture so that employees are free to learn the way they like; and ensuring they find, use and share high quality, relevant information.

This book explains how companies can harness the power of informal learning and why they should, using practical advice from workplace learning experts and practical examples and case studies from around the world.

It shows how employees who are actively encouraged to learn informally are more engaged and motivated, which in turn means they are more productive. This has obvious benefits for organisations whose survival depends on their employees' engagement and performance.

It also explains the barriers to informal learning and how they can be removed or overcome.

The book shows the ways in which Learning & Development, managers and line managers can support employees' informal learning.

Finally, it reveals how informal learning can be tracked and evaluated by L&D and managers.

Unlike most previous books on informal learning, this book is not aimed at academics or learning theorists. It is aimed at those people who are actively involved in workplace learning and development and who want to improve their employees' engagement and their company's performance.
