The ingredients of good performance

The ingredients of good performance | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it
Roger Francis's insight:

I find it fascinating that organisations spend money, sometimes huge amounts of budget, on leadership and engagement programmes because they feel these are the solution to dealing with their perceived performance issues. And yet alongside these leadership and engagement programmes they make little or no effort to better enable the workforce to do the tasks they are being asked to do. In my opinion, organisations should start with enabling people, in effect making them more capable, and this in turn will have a more immediate and also lasting positive effect on engagement and productivity.

How do you make your training matter to your employees?

How do you make your training matter to your employees? | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it

t’s 3am and you’re out on call. You’re in a situation that’s about to turn nasty. Luckily, you attended a training course about handling exactly this kind of thing last year. If only you could remember what the trainer talked about.


So how do you make training matter? That’s the burning question. Well, a good place to start is by making it memorable. Because it’s all well and good if people engage with it while they’re in the training room, but training doesn’t help one jot if people can’t remember it in the real world.

Using wellbeing as an engagement tool

Using wellbeing as an engagement tool | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Managing a hospitality business worth £80 million, I know only too well the importance of staff engagement. My philosophy is that to get the very best service for my clients and consumers, as well as my P&L, engagement is paramount.

 

Having recently been reaccredited for Investors in People (IIP), I was looking for something that would take us to the next level, complement our incentive schemes and employee initiatives, and drive up our Employee Net Promoter Score (ENPS).

Using collaborative learning for faster results | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it

A project team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) won a North American nationwide balloon-hunt contest in an impossible nine hours. How? By collaborating on the web to learn from each other while they completed the task.

 

They turned to familiar, collaborative web technology to solve a professional challenge by:

 

• Inviting their friends and their friends’ networks to participate

 

• Choosing technology that people already knew how to use

 

• Making it worthwhile to share experiences and collect information

 

• Appling what they learnt in the moment.

Don’t pigeonhole the potential of 360-degree feedback | Training and HR Matters | Scoop.it

How does your organisation fill its key positions? Does it recruit externally, take applications from within or is there a formal process in place to ensure a continuous pool of talent is available? A key strategic need in organisations is to have the right people in the right place at the right time. Whether you call this talent management or succession planning, the point is that you must understand what skills your organisation needs to succeed and what constitutes ‘potential’.
