Training Leaders & Managers today are used to training staff and NOT getting support from employee's direct management in regard to training reinforcement.

Ayear ago, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer ignited a firestorm of controversy when she eliminated the company’s telecommuting option. Best Buy and Hewlett Packard soon followed suit with their flexible work programs.

 Working from home can drive employee engagement and performance, but companies first must provide telecommuting training and reinforcement.

Understanding principles in an employee handbook or an e-learning program can be difficult, but not because the content is hard. It’s difficult because it’s just so boring and detached from employees’ day-to-day lives. Some companies are finding storytelling can bring to life learning content that now exists only on the page or screen.

Employees not grasping your trainers’ lessons? The content may need a kick-start from storytelling. Illustrative anecdotes go a long way to helping learners get the point.

It’s a Noisy World

An interesting thing happened during the years companies pulled back on training: The level of content and information coming at employees from all directions didn’t pull back with it. Instead, the noise only grew louder. The competition for attention became fiercer. The disruptions, priorities, responsibilities, and demands piled on at an alarming rate.

Harnessing Energy Microbursts in the Workplace

Some 93 percent of respondents to a survey said they are interested in improving their energy levels throughout their day. A study shows that performing a single microburst of physical activity when feeling tired (i.e., spending five minutes walking up and down stairs, at an easy pace) can triple energy levels.

Engaging Training Participants

Research shows that the more closely the subject matter is related to a participant’s job, the higher the levels of engagement, retention, and post-classroom application.

E-Learning in Higher Ed

Online learning in higher education poses different challenges due to unique characteristics of the market.

Start With Why

The key to developing engaging education lies in first establishing the motivation to learn.

Unconscious Bias

Research demonstrates that we all harbor unconscious biases. The good news is that enhanced awareness and training can create an inclusive culture that identifies and helps eliminate these hidden biases.

Focus on Finland

Training costs may be higher in Finland, but this is balanced by the low-risk environment and excellent growth potential.

Cracking the Mentoring Code

Effective mentoring should be easy. But there are four challenges with which mentors must reckon if they are to move from a “block-checking” activity to a growth-producing result.

From the Editor

When I first joined Training magazine in 2007, my publisher gave me a stack of magazines to read and strongly suggested I familiarize myself with Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Evaluation.
