Is Your Onboarding Process Ready for the Class of 2017?

ej4 eLearning

I love the energy and enthusiasm those recent grads bring to the table, but consider this for a moment: What does it take to manage these bright, young people? When Managers Struggle With The Onboarding Process. When managers don’t have the right training to onboard new hires, that’s bad enough. But when the new hires tend to include millennials, there are even more potential problems, due to generational gaps in expectations, habits, and work experience.

This week, we zoom in on how they are affecting you, the business user. As we noted, some of 2017’s major technology transformations were related to collaboration, integration, cloud adoption, and the start of a corporate learning overhaul. And that’s the point: Organizations are becoming increasingly customer- and employee-centric, and it began to show in 2017. What’s more, a move to the cloud is not simply “new tools for old approaches.”

In my presentation yesterday, I was talking about how to get informal learning going. As many have noted, it’s about moving from a notion of being a builder, handcrafting (or mass-producing) solutions, to being a facilitator, nurturing the community to develop it’s own capabilities. Jay Cross talks about the learnscape , while I term it the performance ecosystem. Our approach to informal learning similarly needs to reflect our natural learning.

The Learning Circuits

I said back in a speech in 1999 that e-learning was over-rated in the short term and under-rated in the long term. I believe that statement is probably more true today, at least for the formal learning area. Tools like Google and IM have proven the killer-apps for the informal areas.) Wearing my analyst hat, I am looking for at least three things to see when formal e-learning hits the big time: One is channels.

The 'learner' fallacy - delusions of influence in L&D

Learning Rocks

The training/development/HR profession is always intensely interested in its own use of language. Perhaps because it spends so much time alongside the diversity hounds of the HR department, or in the company of the mind-benders of NLP, the 'Training Department' has seen the change to 'Learning & Development' and is obsessed with its 'learners'. What's the alternative?
