Starbucks and Sephora are just a few of the organizations who have been faced with scandal due to a lack of emphasis placed on diversity and inclusion (D&I) within their organizations. While organizations have gotten better (they still have a ways to go!) at hiring a diverse workforce, there is still much to be done to ensure employees at all levels are self-aware of internal biases and how they affect decision making.

While diversity training is not the only solution to creating an inclusive workforce, it is an important piece of the equation. But, how do you create an effective D&I program that will be embraced by learners, even as they are having to acknowledge some uncomfortable truths that exist in our society? Even more difficult, how do you create this type of program in the online space? In this webinar we will discuss how to overcome challenges within D&I training, share some real examples of effective online programs and explore strategies for how to position D&I training within your organization.

Recording - Performance Support: Accelerating Productivity at Point-of-Work

Training alone cannot drive performance, only contribute to it; that’s the root of the problem. L&D already excels within long-held training paradigms to deliver effective knowledge transfer—it’s not wrong, it’s just not enough!

The business needs workforce productivity, meaning consistent performance at Point-of-Work, where performance represents the productivity end of a learning-performance continuum. In the current training paradigm, Point-of-Work is out of scope. Traditional training needs assessments cannot inform “intentional design” frameworks like the Five Moments of Need or even 70:20:10, both of which enable convergence of learning with work. Point-of-Work and moments of need are also out of scope for existing LMS technology. Both the conversation and tactics must change, because stakeholders have a blind spot—they expect one thing, training, and it’s not enough.

What does it mean for a learner to be engaged?

Quite literally hundreds of articles every year use the term, with few making little or any effort into defining it.
