Four steps to energising and retaining talent

Four steps to energising and retaining talent | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

If you caught the recent findings by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) then you're probably one of many HR and L&D professionals worried about losing talent this year. The ILM revealed that over a third of workers will move jobs, which is a dramatic increase to 2014.

 

This increase is certainly being driven by a more competitive jobs market but it's equally being fuelled by bad management, lack of training and development and poor career progression which is leaving staff demotivated in their jobs. As we know, people that are not engaged in their work are less productive and likely to move on. But often changing jobs is the last resort for a lot of people, forced upon them because there's no other way to progress their career with their existing employer.

Training Culture vs. Learning Culture

Training Culture vs. Learning Culture | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
What’s the difference between a “training culture” and a “learning culture”? The answer is, “A great deal.” As the chart shows, in a training culture, responsibility for employee learning resides with instructors and training managers. In that kind of culture the assumption is that trainers (under the direction of a CLO) drive learning. Whereas in a learning culture, responsibility for learning resides with each employee and each team. In that kind of culture, employees are expected to seek out the knowledge and skills they need, when and where that knowledge and those skills are needed.

Organizations cannot really change people and educate them, that is something employees have to do themselves. As a manager, if you feel responsible for people’s self-development–and you should be–a good alternative is to tweak the environment so that people change themselves, educate themselves, and start developing the desired habits.

7 Best Practices in Setting Up a Corporate University | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Building out a corporate university may be one of the most daunting tasks a Learning and Development department faces. Creating the university is more than creating a training department – it involves the entire organization, its future, and even its perceptions of training and development. There are several best practices that you can follow in order to set up your corporate university effectively. This doesn’t mean that you have to follow each best practice, but use and modify them based on your organization and its needs. The first best practice is consistent and constant assessment and analysis.

What should we do with the multi-generational workforce?

What should we do with the multi-generational workforce? | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
Generational diversity is now firmly on the agenda for the HR departments of many organisations, particularly as regards the two largest ‘bookend groups’ – Generation Y (born 1979-1994) and the Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964).

These two generations have both similarities and differences that management commentators believe can be exploited via increasing adoption of practices like flexible working, remote working, ‘progressive’ values (e.g. towards diversity and the environment), opportunities to engage in ethical-social activities, inter-generational mentoring, new forms of reward mixes, tailored communications (e.g. social media), and so on.

The value of navel gazing and why HR must focus on the future

The value of navel gazing and why HR must focus on the future | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

There’s no doubt that one of HR’s most time consuming preoccupations is reflecting on its own future. Communities like HRZone provide us with a wealth of rich information but have certainly contributed to the amount of introspection taking place as well. And then you’ve got people like me finding something to challenge the HR profession about on an almost daily basis too.  No wonder most HR people still don’t read blogs, and why there’s a healthy level of resistance to excessive self-absorption!

A friend and I were sharing “speaker war stories” recently, prompted by his jaw-dropping experience earlier that week.


Here’s what happened…


Just as my friend was about to start his presentation, an audience member took a call on his cell phone. He didn’t just take the call, though.


He vamped for the audience, saying in a loud voice at the end of the call “No I will NOT have sex with you.” When he hung up, he looked at my friend on stage and announced: “That was your wife.”
