You might not know this, May is the month for ‘learning at work week’, which means this months’ blog is all about training and learning! At Purple Lime, we love all things professional development. We are firm believers that your learning doesn’t stop just because you leave school, and that anyone no matter how old they are, can benefit from training and learning new skills. With that in mind, we wanted to bring your attention to the learning at work week campaign, and give you some suggestions on how to use it effectively within your business.
What Is Learning At Work Week?
‘Learning at work week’ is an annual event held every year in May, organised by the Campaign for Learning. It’s been running since 1999 and has slowly been gaining traction on the business events calendar ever since. The idea of the campaign is simple – to push into the spotlight the importance and benefits of learning and development at work. Any company or organisation can take part in the official celebrations, or simply use it to promote training, upskilling and professional development with your employees. This year’s learning at work week is from the 13th to the 19th of May, but that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop on the 20th!
Why Opt For Xero Training?
When there is a huge variety of things out there to learn, you might wonder why we’re suggesting you choose Xero training. The answer is very simple. Xero is an incredibly powerful bit of business software, one of the most popular accounting packages for small, medium and ambitious business owners, and yet most aren’t even aware of half of the functionality available to them. If you could unlock that hidden potential, you could use Xero to gain powerful insights into your business in a way you have never seen before.
With Xero, you can see and reconcile your bank transactions at a glance, who your most profitable customers are, where your major cashflow fluctuations fall each year, improve your invoice payment days and even run detailed customised reports helping you to understand how your decisions would affect your business – before you make them. In short, by upgrading your Xero knowledge, you could gain valuable business insights that would help you make better decisions, faster, and grow more efficiently. Who wouldn’t want that?
