    Digital Literacy: Building expertise in critical, everyday digital activities

    The digital skills gap is not only real, but it's broader than we have thought - it goes beyond typical IT and DevOps skills into every day digital technologies. As new technologies are adopted across all functional areas in an organization, tasks automated, and new jobs created, more and more employees must be digital literate. Yet getting there is not always easy. New hires frequently don't have all the skills needed for success, only 11% of organizations have all the digital skills needed to succeed, and 51% of organizations don't have a strategy for managing and developing skills in a digital world.

    Understanding Training Needs for IT Professionals, It's More Than Technical

    Do you understand that being skilled in IT extends beyond technical training and what is being asked of them requires a level of soft skills that they may or may not have, but where do you begin to offer development? Organizations who invest in their IT professionals' growth beyond their technical capabilities are setting up a long term retention strategy by demonstrating commitment to those high value resources. When starting this process, it is important to think about how to assess current and future IT needs with a new lens, and then how to develop training plans that are balanced and reflective of what will be needed to set the employee and the organization up for success. So where to begin? Join this informative webcast to learn how think differently about developing a versatile IT workforce that drives results from the bullpen to the boardroom.

    Making Competencies Work for You: You've Built a Competency Model, Now What?

    An effective competency strategy supports short and long term organizational success because it allows for the alignment of talent/behavior with business objectives. Formal models reflect the organization's mission and values provide a common language to describe not only the KSAs (Knowledge, Skills and Abilities) for success, but often the intangible attributes that often are the qualities that "make or break" an individual's success in a specific role or with the organization in general. Informal modes are when competencies provide a language for managers (and their HR partners) to set goals and provide feedback on qualitative performance expectations which are often difficult for people leaders to articulate. At times, you may need to assist your internal stakeholder groups in how to speak the language of development and identify "informal" competency models that can be used to align learning to what's important to individual stakeholder groups. These competencies can answer the WIIFM question for decision makers and for ICs who need convincing to spend time on their development. During this workshop you will learn how to use content mappings more effectively to focus users on relevant development tools.

    University Points: The Gamification of Training and Beyond

    Ten years ago, Fallon Health began a Learning Points program with the goals of increasing tracking of employee learning and to encourage an ongoing culture of learning. Within the past few years, we adopted the Maestro Learning solution and then added the SumTotal Talent solution - participation in this program has exploded. During 2016, our Learning Points program has been rebranded into the University Points program — building off the internal name of our integrated suite (elixHR® Platform/SumTotal Talent/Succession/Maestro). In addition to rewarding employees with points for learning, employees also gain points for completing their performance evaluation tasks on time, and for completing parts of their employee profile — information that is essential for good succession planning metrics. And, of course, the program wraps up with recognition and prizes at the end of the year! Do you have what it takes to be a University Points Guru? During this session attendees will learn:

    * How Fallon Health leveraged the SumTotal elixHR® Platform to increase employee engagement

    * How we increased employee comfort with SumTotal solutions

    * Best practices for encouraging continuous learning and data participation for the Succession Planning module

    Engaging the Modern Learner with Microlearning that Sticks

    Distractions are status quo in today's workplace—and they wreak havoc on learning programs, significantly impacting learner engagement and retention. On the surface, microlearning—content served up in short, easily digestible portions—seems like an appealing way to connect with time-pressed learners. But what exactly is it and how does it work? How do you ensure the content you're investing in will energize your learning program, engage users and facilitate on-the-job application? In this session, we'll review research findings on microlearning and explore best practices for using this type of content effectively to increase engagement, retention and value.

    A key challenge facing organisations is that their training efforts are not aligned with the digital era. Most companies have yet to realise that their workers need now, more than ever, to adapt their digital skills to these rapid changes. In Europe, 47% of the workforce do not feel confident with their digital skills. The skills gap, accompanied by the fact that learners are changing their own behaviour, means L&D teams need to embrace a new era of online training: open to everyone, cloud-based, fully localised, and always up-to-date.

    Re-inventing Human Resources: Intrapreneurship and how to revamp your organization inside out

    Today, organizations need entrepreneurial people. In our daily work life the internal entrepreneur (intrapreneur) embodies an attitude of personal commitment, understands the big picture, and has a passion for her work. Increasingly, professionals want much more than to just pay the bills and organizations realize that it takes enthusiastic people with a personal vision to maintain a healthy and thriving culture. To launch intrapreneurialism, leadership teams are now wondering how to "turn-on" the passion of their workforce. CEOs want and need people to embody a self-directed attitude to bring in new business, and do it because it matters to them.
