In the current world scenario of knowledge based economy, competitiveness had never been greater. Organisations and entities need to enhance their human capital capabilities to a level comprising of internal norms and external up-to-date practices. The major results of industryacademia collaboration are still blurred by risk and regulatory fog. This paper draws its contents from the experience and practices of workplace programme initiatives leading to planning, designing and delivery of such programmes. It shares the challenges and strategies for effective initiatives leading to excellent ROI in human capital for recipient organisation and providers. It is aimed to examine what practices/pedagogies/structures enhance the integration of work and learning and what discourage it? Change of policies incorporating assumptions about the integration of work and learning (such as lifelong learning, recognition of prior learning, etc) has made learning at work more conducive with the impact of globalization. The new kinds of partnerships and networks that are increasingly prominent in work arrangements and structures would present the various challenges/opportunities for integrating work and learning.
