Many companies are increasingly recognizing the central role that coworkers play in the work experience by integrating prospective future peers into the hiring process and assigning buddies to new hires. Peer-based learning is also crucially important to new employees, and can often provide value for the teacher as well as the learner. Most people learn a lot of what they know from friends and classmates, and more seasoned coworkers can help teach you how things work. Peer-to-peer learning doesn’t take too much in the way of resources, and can thrive if you do things like creating internal social media, mentoring programs and “sandboxes” for familiarization with different tools.
