Learning at work, the skills that you take away are greater than you think…

They say that you never stop learning and in the workplace, this couldn’t be truer. People often underestimate how much learning you actually do in your job. Learning something new doesn’t necessarily mean signing yourself up for a course or placement, just by carrying out your day to day tasks and observing allows us to pick up valuable lessons along the way.

All around you, people are undertaking different task’s and roles. Roles that ordinarily you may not be exposed to. Even if you are not actively involved in the task at hand, by association you are already getting a perspective on something new. Working closely and engaging with your colleagues on different task’s can afford you fantastic opportunities to learn and the scope for learning is vast.

Let’s take a look at two business facets that you may be exposed to in the workplace and see what you can learn from them.

Knowledge of you businesses sector:

This is an invaluable point when it comes to looking to grow your career within a specific industry. Every day you’ll be exposed directly and indirectly to factors that define success and failure in your industry. This knowledge is invaluable when it comes to looking to further your career as you gradually become more of an authority on your chosen vocation. This experience will also stand you in good stead for future decision making within your role.

Customer service:

Whether your role is directly customer-facing or not, customer service is another factor that you’ll gain a stronger handle on. Every person that you interact with in the business could be considered a customer. Whether you are waiting on a financial document from the finance team, a sales report from someone on the sales floor or you are having to report back to the CEO, every single party in this situation is looking to receive something and how you handle these situations and interact with the given parties allows you an opportunity to learn great people skills and to learn managing expectations.
