Whether it’s local, state, or federal, every business must work by a set of laws and rules concerning hiring, promotions, firing, and other personnel-related matters.

When creating a learning strategy, it can be difficult to see the whole picture. Individual components like onboarding efforts, compliance training, leadership development, and skills development programs can be complex ordeals, each requiring varying levels of thought. However, simply examining these programs individually can be a costly mistake. Without considering how they belong to the overall learning and development efforts, the strategy can fall apart. Taking a holistic approach might be necessary to protect from some of the inherent risks of training expenditures. As part of best practices, any learning objective should align with the broader business goals. But, beyond that, any training activities should include a clearly defined message of the "what’s in it for me" or WIIFM to the learner. Asking them to commit to the process means knowing what they stand to gain for their efforts. The holistic approach to explaining the WIIFM should include not only the learner, but their team, department, and organization, in general. In this eBook, we focus on how organizations can take a holistic approach to creating upskilling strategies for their learners. Topics include: Why the business climate is right for upskilling initiatives Using learning tech to help the organization adapt and thrive Ongoing challenges learning leaders face with upskilling programs Strategy suggestions to avoid common mistakes How certain industries can win with upskilling programs

Introduction When Peter McLaughlin and I first began talking about the topics of communication and feedback specifically, we quickly realized we had several things in common. We both felt that we were not particularly effective in giving feedback. In fact, we felt that we were pretty bad. We enjoyed the challenge and the positive results that come with a successful feedback conversation. We wondered why we had not naturally learned to give feedback. We agreed that if we were provided with a roadmap or model for giving feedback, we would have performed much more effectively in such situations. Looking back at particular examples, we both had a sense of delight from the positive encounters, and a sense of dread over the sessions that left us feeling discouraged, beaten down and lackluster. So why did we begin a project filled with such negative emotion? The answer—both to improve our own feedback skills and to examine what it would take to teach a new perspective and help "turn the opinion tide" that has made feedback a dreaded negative topic. Who doesn’t want to get better? Have you ever known anyone who said, "Nah, I’ll just stay mediocre and by the way, I don’t want a raise, promotion or exciting project…" Probably not. Our internal drive propels us to strive, learn and improve.
The challenges the business world has faced over the last few years have shed a brighter light on organizational vulnerabilities and opportunities to improve the way we work - none more so than workplace training. While most employees value the training they get in the workplace, very few — along with many leaders — believe that L&D programs are bringing the best results, prompting employers in every industry to think more strategically about their L&D programs. In July 2022 Emergn conducted a survey of more than 1,200 professionals from the US and the UK to tap into the minds of both learners and leaders of organizations and discovered: How workplace training is a powerful tool to recruit and retain top talent in an organization Why there is a disconnect between learners and leaders on the effectiveness of workplace training If leaders can showcase the results of workplace training to prove its benefits to employers

Corporate training programs are designed in a way that’s inherently flawed, focusing mainly on passive content delivery. Action-based learning helps bridge the gap between theory and practice, and leads to significantly higher knowledge retention and completion rates.  Download the eBook and learn how to apply action-based learning to deliver a stellar ROI for your company.

Measuring the results of organizational learning is far from being an exact science. Learning technologies play a huge role in the challenging task of keeping track of employee learning performance. Business learning management systems lead the way in terms of gathering learning data and presenting it in a comprehensible manner — through their analytics and reporting tools — allowing both training professionals and business managers to identify any pain points related to employee performance and then make the best decisions. This white paper presents how company success is directly connected to employee performance, how e-learning can boost it and how a business LMS and its analytics and reporting capabilities can support instructors and managers in every step of the way.
Nonprofits, like many other kinds of organizations, have accelerated their interest in eLearning technology (specifically, learning management systems) as more employees shift to remote workers. Contributing to this need for better eLearning tech may be higher demands for special requirements and regulations. The challenges nonprofit organizations face are often similar to that of for-profit organizations, but nonprofits do face some unique additional challenges. The first step to overcoming these challenges is to recognize potential obstacles and be prepared for them. By nature, every new expense for a nonprofit is examined by how effectively it contributes to "the mission" of the organization. A few of these obstacles include achieving management buy-in, showing value in eLearning tech year-over-year, and how technology can help retain employees. Empowering your learners with a robust LMS and aligning your learning programs with the greater organizational objectives can make all the difference when tackling these challenges. In this eBook, we focus on how nonprofit organizations have been turning to eLearning technology to overcome recent challenges. Topics include: Cultural differences in nonprofits Using learning tech to adapt and thrive in a nonprofit world Ongoing challenges nonprofits face Why attitudes are changing Moving into the future with confidence
