Webinar Recording Details



There's formal learning and there's informal learning, and never the two shall meet. Unless, that is, you really care about results and transfer back to the job. This case-study  will show how formal learning, on-the-job transfer, and cutting-edge social technologies are being integrated into an employee accreditation program and a sales readiness initiative. An integrated approach to blending the formal with the informal also provided an opportunity to use workforce analytics to measure impact.

Aids and tools will include:
  • How to focus on results to get the investment you need
  • A matrix for developing an integrated solution
  • How to respond when your customer asks for something you disagree with
  • How to use your LMS to track employee accreditation and results
