We recently spoke with Avilar’s CEO, Tom Grobicki, to discuss what he’s seeing in the world of workforce competencies. Any best practices from companies that are doing it well? Companies still use competencies to understand employees’ weaknesses to develop and support a training plan with resources to close the gap. It’s best to understand where potential holes exist and to know what’s needed in one, three, five, and even 10 years down the road.

But despite those amazing gains, the discussion still continues about the role of women in business, and how that role is changing. It’s great to see the topic on the table, though it’ll be even greater when workplaces are so fully integrated that the concept never occurs as a discussion point. Where do we go from here?

Chronus

She is a passionate social equality advocate committed to helping leaders foster healthier and therefore more productive workplaces, ultimately driving innovation and business results. Q: Why is there often a resistance to this kind of change, or even discussion, in the workplace?

A Conversation with Bryan Austin of mLevel

mLevel

We discussed the evolution of the mLevel game-based learning platform and how it has helped a number of companies increase the effectiveness of learning in their organizations. Austin: Corporate learning functions are often stretched too thin by the business’ increasing demand for learning programs coupled with the increasing pace of change.
