Wednesday, June 8, 2016, 10AM – 11AM PST: Pulling Learners to Your Content: How to Make It Work

While formal “push” training is often best for when people are learning something new, and for when things change, a strong argument can be made that “pull” learning lends itself to the following moments of need:

  • When learners need to build on concepts that they learned in a more formal training environment.

  • When they need to apply what they’ve learned.

  • When things go wrong.

We need to anticipate these moments of need, and embed accessible content so workers can constantly learn when it is most appropriate for them. To be discussed:

  • How do we design pull learning for specific learning environments? Specifically, how is the pull learning environment impacted when working at your desk as opposed to learning on-the-go?

Thursday, June 9, 2016, 6AM – 7AM PST: Is Your Learning Technology Holding You Back?

We all know how quickly business moves, and technology changes even faster. Why then do so many organizations rely on outdated learning technology to support their business? Why do they use multiple LMSs from a variety of vendors across their global organization? According to Brandon Hall Group research, a “system that appears outdated” has been one of the top five reasons why companies want to switch their LMS providers for the past several years. Our research also indicates that large organizations, on average, have as many as four different LMSs.

Often, companies hold onto legacy technology or multiple systems for fear that a change would be too challenging and/or expensive. The truth is that old technology and extra systems may be costing your company far more time and money than you know.

Join David Wentworth, Principal Learning Analyst for Brandon Hall Group, and Michelle Sullivan, Marketing Director for NetDimensions as they share insights into the challenges companies face with learning technology, and discuss best practices for creating a strategy to upgrade, as well as tips to prepare your organization and mitigate the impact change represents. 

Thursday, June 9, 2016, 10AM – 11AM PST: Engaging Activities for Live Online Meetings, Webinars, and Virtual Training

Thursday, June 9, 2016, 10AM – 11AM PST: The Evolution of Human Capital Technology: Empowerment for the Restaurant and Food Services Industry

All attendees will receive a complimentary book, Building a Magnetic Culture by Kevin Sheridan. This webinar is sponsored by cfactor Works.

Things used to be simple. You used the telephone book to find a phone number. You pulled out a map to see where something was. And your watch wasn’t smarter than you are. Today's reality is, we have come to expect an integrated experience. With one query I want to know where something is, how far away it is, when it’s available, and if they have it in my favorite colour. The same is true of work. We don’t want to interact with siloed processes, we want capabilities to engage with information and people seamlessly as we go in order to get the job done.

And as human capital technology evolves, it is moving from a place where people simply access discrete bits of information – learning over here, benefits over there – to a system of engagement enabling individual and organizational growth, productivity and results.

To highlight how using human capital technology as a system of engagement can empower a workforce and benefit an industry, Brandon Hall Group and Kevin Sheridan will discuss cases studies from the Restaurant and Food Services industry and include recent research findings from Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Technology Trends, Employee Value Proposition, and Employee Engagement surveys.

It’s time for organizations to put hiring under the microscope. In this webcast, the presenter will share five steps for creating more evidence-based, scientific, and effective selection processes. You will:

  • Discover what hiring methods have the highest predictive validity.

  • Discuss what measures and methods will yield the highest return on investment for your organization.

  • Learn what criteria to consider when selecting an assessment instrument.
