The Peformance Improvement

As we come out of the recession and companies prepare for hiring and growth, the level of trust in a company’s culture will have a lot to say about whether that organization will be successful or not. Without trust, employees become what Judy Bardwick, in her article titled "The High Cost of Mistrust," calls actively disengaged.

And once trust is lost, it is very difficult to earn back.

How to Harness Informal Learning

Rob Hubbard

Organisations have to trust their employees, which is not an easy thing to do and, in many cases, change the way that they perceive learning altogether.

Perpetuating certain myths about training can be an easy way to side-step larger problems.
