This continuous process is being conducted by an individual to achievesomething for improving the knowledge related to the subject. According to Armstrong andTaylor (2014), learning helps in improving workplace performance and potential of an individualin order to achieve success. There are various theories which define the learning styles within theemployee relationships as the way of an individual to gain the knowledge which varies withdifferent personalities of the employees. Kolb’s theory - This theory was published by David Kolb in 1984 for justifying the fact thatlearning comes from the abstract concepts and experiences of an individual that can beimplemented in various situations they might face. There are four learning styles that has beenstated by Kolb in the theory:Diverging - This style of learning helps in believing in watching and in feeling. Peoplewith this learning style are imaginative and find solutions by the process of generatingidea.Converging - This learning style find solutions for the issue practically. People with thisstyle of learning are logical and believe in the implementation of learning experiences.Page 2 of 18

Assimilating - This is thinking and watching process. During this process of learning thepeople absorb the scenario by watching and thinking about it logically.Accommodating - This process is also practical in nature but the people following thisprocess focuses on intuitions than logics.The concept of Kolb was then modified by Honey and Mumford with their own learning styleprocesses. They are:Theorists - They try to understand the theoretical facts behind the goals and objectives.Activists - They learn by their activities or experiences.Pragmatists - They are practical and implement the methods in the real world.Reflector - They learn things by thinking and observing the situation.In this essay, it has been stated that the SHARP organization is using the Theorist’s learningprocess as the company offers two day programs of induction that allows the workers tounderstand company’s objectives and strategies. 1.2 Explanation of the role of the learning curve and the effectiveness oftransferring learning in the workplaceThe concept of learning curve was first explained by Hermann Ebbinghaus. The graphicalrepresentation of the learning performance of an individual is termed as Learning curve. Itcreates an impact over two situations. It is made to review the employee productivity performingthe same task or the review of the employee learning.
