INDUSTRY SOLUTIONS: How to Increase Engagement with Custom eLearning

Historically, instructor-led training (ILT) has dominated learning modalities. But in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, employee training and development teams are under pressure to quickly recreate instructor-led experiences in a virtual setting. Doing so usually requires the capabilities to build custom eLearning activities, but for many Learning and Development (L&D) teams, that may seem impossible on a short timeline.

However, in addition to high-tech solutions such as gamification and immersive technologies, there are also low-tech solutions that can help.

Learning and Development: A Key Component of an Integrated Talent Management Framework

An Integrated Talent Management Framework (ITM) is not about acquiring, developing, and retaining your workforce. It is all about creating a winning organization by institutionalizing integrated talent processes across your entire organization. Learning and Development is an integral part of this framework and must be fully integrated with talent management to optimize your business results.

Leading from the Soft Side

People are not things, nor are they assets. Assets are objects that businesses consume, depreciate, and write off over time. People are flesh and blood, emotional, human beings. Leaders need to understand this truth and lead accordingly.

The Power of Storytelling

There are three distinct ways a story adds value to you and your business: It makes you relatable, emotional, and multidimensional. If you can capture all three, you will find that people will want to buy into YOU because they are so moved by the story you are telling.

Workplace Learning Is Not Rocket Science

Recently, a Learning professional colleague asked us, "Why is workplace learning so complicated? Isn’t it simply about improving people's performance?"

Everyday Workplace Training

Do you remember those divisions at universities and colleges called “lifelong learning centers”? Their name was an attempt to remind all of us who had graduated and gone on to work that learning should never stop.

Content and Caring

If content is king, then caring needs to be queen in training. And caring, connection, and context cannot always be conveyed through an online or distance medium.

Adding Value to Volume

The end of the year is a time to take stock of where we have been professionally and personally over the last 12 months. Based on this analysis, we then look to make adjustments and craft resolutions to hold ourselves to those adjustments in order to achieve our goals in the following year.

Thinking Mobile First

More than 58 percent of mobile devices are now smart phone or tablet based, and this year alone there will be 70 billion-plus apps installed on these devices. If you haven't already started, over the next 12 months, you need to develop a mobile strategy and define how you will integrate mobile into your new courses and apps or how to supplement your training with new content, apps, and tools.

The Personal Touch

Those who have had the greatest impact on our lives typically are those who took an interest in us: mentors and sponsors.

Focus on Qatar

Given the culture of growing global competition, businesses are developing executives based on talent, creating opportunities for nationals to excel—regardless of gender. In developing nations, ex-pats often are called upon to develop talent and anticipate the needs for the next generation of leadership demands.

Focus on Sweden

Swedish companies can earn far higher profits selling finished goods as opposed to commodities. Training is needed to allow this change to occur.

Increase Training Attendance

Take a page out of marketing’s playbook and increase training attendance by creating a campaign that builds excitement for the program.

Leading with Wisdom

Leadership literature is exploding with books and articles to help us become better leaders. At the same time, numerous leadership programs, institutes, centers, coaches, and consultants claim to develop more effective leaders. Annually, the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard measures public confidence in leadership with its National Leadership Index (NLI). It surveys Americans’ attitudes toward their leaders, including 13 of the country’s major sectors such as the military, religious, education, and business.

Energizing Your Workforce

It makes every business sense to find practical and creative ways to tap into the inner spark in yourself and your team. Here’s how to light the way.

Positive Power

Before we can be happy or successful, we need to develop the ability to see that positive change is possible. Creating this outcome is not just about spreading happiness but about helping others create a reality in which success (and happiness) is possible.

Weathering the Storm

Despite continued economic turmoil, total 2013 U.S. training expenditures—including payroll and spending on external products and services—remained relatively flat at $55.4 billion (down just slightly from $55.8 billion last year), according to Training magazine’s 2013 Industry Report.

A New Level of Thinking?

Training magazine and Pearson TalentLens research reveals how thinking styles differ by occupational level and industry.

How to Narrow Critical Skilled Labor Gaps

No matter your perspective on the skilled labor gap issue—whether you believe it’s due to the need for more training, increased salaries, or simply the need to relocate skilled labor—our research has found that the skills gap is a reality.

RETAIN to Reskill

Training professionals need to add their perspectives and expertise to Regional Talent Innovation Networks (RETAINs) in their local communities to help the U.S. avoid falling off the looming talent cliff.
