There seems little mileage in working to promote retention of learning in a context where retention of those doing the learning is not also equally valued. We may, whether employees are willing or not, seek to capture as much of their knowledge as possible in KM systems, intranets, group forums and a million other co-opted platforms, but it is not knowledge alone that delivers performance. Other elements need to come into play, not least reward and recognition systems that are fully informed by the motivations of those that they would reward. There is little benefit in ensuring that the learning stays in their heads (and their actions and behaviours) unless their heads stay in the building.
