Learn the Ins and Outs of Riot Games’ Learning and Development Team

💎 Riot Games’ learning and development team keeps growing. Watch the video to the end to learn everything about it.

📼 The learning and development team of a gaming company has multiple functions that go beyond gaming. Brandon Roberson, director of learning and development at Riot Games, shares the ins and outs of his team and what it’s like to work at the company.

📼 Riot Games’ learning and development team has to work across many verticals: entertainment, enterprise functions, and publishing functions. The company is complex in how they operate, and they excel at identifying stakeholders, understanding their needs, and how they overlap with the broader business. The main goal is to unite all those people in the most efficient and effective ways to drive towards a collective impact.

📼 No one on the learning and development team studied structural design or studied learning as a college path to get there. The team itself takes a non-traditional path. There are skills you can learn along the way and put into practice, so be willing to take a risk. Look for that opportunity, no matter what you're doing now. Your current role doesn't have to be what you do forever. Take that jump; take the leap because you can't fly until you take off.

A Diverse Learning and Development Team

Diversity is essential to navigating the world around us. And Riot Games is an environment where people get to create fantasy and lore. So finding opportunities to make that reflective of people’s day-to-day experiences (and the daily experiences that players have) is critical for team members. The only way to do that is to embrace a deep understanding of those stories by hearing them from diverse perspectives. Diversity not only makes Riot Games better in how they communicate and present products to the world, but it also makes them better in connecting with each other, understanding differences, and thriving in a world that will continue to look more and more diverse.
