Too Much to Do and Too Little Time

Do you sometimes feel you have too much to do and not enough time to do it in? You aren't alone. It can be frustrating when you're expending a lot of energy but not sure you're doing it in the right places for the right reasons. Having goals is a good start. But do your goals align with your organization's goals for you? When goals shift and change and you don't know which are most important and to what degree you're supposed to be attending to them, it can get confusing. You have to be clear on where you're headed and why, otherwise your work getting there will be scattered and you won't make the best use of your time. In this course, you'll learn how to get clarity around what's most important - your goals - by ensuring they're aligned with those of your organization, so you can prioritize your work based on those goals.

Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go

Attracting and retaining top performers demands a genuine commitment to employees and their development. Yet too few organizations have discovered how to accomplish this in a sustained and sustainable fashion. Short-term career initiatives, IDP (individual development planning) systems, and featured 'programs-of-the-month' fail to deliver intended results... and in some cases further undermine employee satisfaction. Now is the time for Human Resources professionals to crack the code on career development.

* How to transform talent management from a series of disconnected pieces to a holistic, end-to-end experience that fosters engagement, retention and great performance.

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.

The Inevitable Fusion of Learning & Talent: Charting Your Path

CLO Magazine launched a series called "Learning in Talent Management" in July, stating that the future of our space would see a blend of two often separate functions - learning and talent management. Organizations that combine their learning and talent practices yield better outcomes for their organizations and a far better user experience for their employees. That's why maturing the learning and talent strategies into a more cohesive function has become a business imperative. But where do you begin? Skillsoft's five-stage benchmarking framework can help you pinpoint your current stage of maturity and develop a plan to advance to the next level.

The Relationship Between Learning, Workforce Agility, and Business Performance

Organizations that embrace and practice agility are proven to be more effective in dealing with change. Key to fostering agility is continuous learning and development. Learning is not an event-based occurrence where one-time training can satisfy skill gaps; learning opportunities need to be accessible, targeted, and continuous. With a strong learning culture that aligns with business objectives, companies are better able to embrace an agile mindset, and with increased agility, performance will improve and the overall business impact will increase.

It's About Time: Developing Women for Business Leadership

Time management is particularly important for women to succeed in business because women already have more absolute, if self-imposed, demands on their time. This is true both inside and outside of the workplace. Women are also less likely to consider timeline trajectories in planning their careers and career development. Neither do they typically have "extra" time to accept additional assignments that traditionally have helped workers ascend the corporate ladder. In this paper, research firm Eudemonia illustrates how a time-bound and time-sensitive approach to developing women for business leadership positions can be a critical enabler of success.
