Case Study: Accelerating New Employee Productivity at Savvis, A CenturyLink Company

When Jim Sokolowski arrived at Savvis Communications in 2010 to begin as director of Global Learning and Leadership Development, the company was experiencing double-digit growth, along with a change in senior leadership that brought a renewed commitment to human capital as a strategic enabler and competitive advantage.

Relationship Selling—It’s Elementary!

By Barbara Randi, Training Account Manager, Signature Worldwide A few months back, I was privy to a conversation between a customer (client/guest) and a service representative (rep). It was obvious who was in charge. Although the customer, I will call him “Bill,” lacked knowledge of the item he was looking to purchase, he alone maintained control of the call and the so-called conversation.

Understanding the Value of Development to Your Workforce

Meeting the staffing challenges of the future is paramount for any organization.

Social Learning: Trend or Transformation?

By The Training Top 10 Hall of Fame Social networking became the rallying cry for a generation that connects over the Internet as easily as previous generations communicated over the telephone. In fact, many Millennials entering the workforce actually prefer social media to spoken conversations. Now, savvy trainers are leveraging the technologies that enable Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and blogs, among other options, to deliver learning—not just because they can, but because using specific media supports their training goals.

Developing Leaders in Emerging Markets

By Abraham Zachariah, Vice President, Capability Development Lead- India, Business Process Outsourcing, Accenture Arguably one of the biggest challenges most organizations face today in emerging markets such as India is the ability to manage a young work force and channel their abundant energies.

To top it all off, they seem to have numerous options in front of them, and loyalty to the organization is no longer considered a virtue.
