Organisations worldwide are creating learning organisations for knowledge acquisition & sharing, collectively empowering people toward innovation and change, creating value for customers & shareholders, etc. Output of a learning organisation not only improves operating efficiency by modifying products, processes & services but also leads to distinctive advantages and outsells the competition. Environmental turbulence is transforming general insurance organisations from mechanical to LOs to remain competitive, efficient and effective. Data for the study were collected from 498 employees of 11 general insurance company GIC organisations functioning in the union territory of J&K. After data reduction and scale validation through exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis, hypotheses were tested using structural equation modelling and one-way ANOVA. The study concluded that for ensuring successful LO, learning aptitude, knowledge and training must be encouraged. Further, empowerment, shared vision, teamwork, reward, effective communication, and supportive leadership are also required for encouraging employees to perform outstanding at the individual level, group level, and corporation level.

Environmental turbulence is transforming general insurance organisations from mechanical to LOs to remain competitive, efficient and effective. Data for the study were collected from 498 employees of 11 general insurance company GIC organisations functioning in the union territory of J&K. After data reduction and scale validation through exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis, hypotheses were tested using structural equation modelling and one-way ANOVA. The study concluded that for ensuring successful LO, learning aptitude, knowledge and training must be encouraged. Further, empowerment, shared vision, teamwork, reward, effective communication, and supportive leadership are also required for encouraging employees to perform outstanding at the individual level, group level, and corporation level.
