Abstract:The problem and the solution. This article portrays a perspective from andragogy, individual learning, and social capital theory as a contribution to the discussion on the relationship between adult learning theory and human resource development (HRD). Andragogy and social capital theory may offer a contribution to transforming the traditional workplace into a conducive learning environment, emphasizing the importance of social networks, partnerships, collaboration, interaction, and knowledge sharing. Social capital provides the network of meaningful relationships that helps learning integrate into the day-to-day work environment.
