A Professional Learning Network

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced companies to reimagine the distributive employee as core to their workforce business model. Whether full-time or part-time, the opportunity to work distributively (Hybrid/WFH/Remote) is now a private sector employee expectation; an expectation to be codified into the employment agreement.

Irrespective of company size, harnessing valuable knowledge from a shrinking cohort of managers and professionals, especially in remote or hybrid work settings, has become challenging. Employers are now reimagining ways to boost productivity and create a learning environment by providing offsite workers with timely access to operational and technical guidance.

KnowledgeNET aims to create professional learning networks (PLN) that recognize and monetize unique expertise. It provides hybrid and remote employees with timely access to internal and external subject matter experts for valuable insights. This service promotes staff retention, productivity, and a competitive edge in attracting top-performing hybrid and remote workers.

In reality, the true value of knowledge stems not from its management but from its creation and exchange. While companies and individuals may possess equal talent and access to public knowledge, there is immense advantage in offering a unique perspective. External markets are driven by items deemed valuable enough to warrant the time and effort of buyers and sellers. Often, these valuable products revolve around the intangible practical knowledge gained through experience and personal reflection.

How it Works

Frontline employees possess invaluable proprietary knowledge that cannot be replicated. However, accessing this knowledge is not always feasible. Learning network participants understand the significance of readily available expertise when enhancing a company’s decision-making process. Our KnowledgeNET Curators acknowledge that the cost, time, and effort required should be outweighed by the quality of advice obtained, surpassing the expenses associated with gathering information or tapping into a client’s internal network of knowledge and experience.

Your interface with our KnowledgeNET Curator is straightforward, you tell us what you’re seeking to learn, the scope of information expected, the preferred interaction and the timeframe required. We identify the relevant expertise through our in-house TalentNET or conduct an external search for the most knowledgeable source. The Curator presents you with a shortlist of KnowledgeNET Advisors, a profile of their expertise and their billing rate. You select your preferred Advisor and our team looks after the logistics including the billing.
