Create a flexible and engaging learning environment with Customized Learning

Create a flexible and engaging learning environment with Customized Learning | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Customized learning is a learner-centric approach. Learners make their own decisions regarding the content they want to consume, how learning is planned, and what the goals are. Some systems incorporate self-assessment and let learners decide what they want to achieve by interacting with the system.

In most corporate settings, customized learning is supported by the use of analytics. An LMS can track a learner's performance and interests, then recommend specific modules or learning paths adapted to each user.

5 Ways to Implement Work Life Balance For Employees

5 Ways to Implement Work Life Balance For Employees | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Some people dismiss work-life balance as an impossible dream, but the fact is that it’s never been more important to help employees manage their stress and health. Studies have shown that enforcing and encouraging balance in the work place can lead to many positive results for employees and for production. In fact, one study of 50,000 employees around the world by the Corporate Executive board found that those who believed they have a good work-life balance worked 21% harder. In addition to productivity gains, employees who maintain balance have lower medical costs and less absenteeism. Companies enjoy lower turnover rates, which further improves productivity and cuts costs.

With all the benefits of a healthy work-life balance in mind, it’s also important to keep in mind the priorities of today’s workforce. On top of the poor health and well-being that overwork can encourage, there’s a generational divide when it comes to work-life balance. Older Americans are used to working a lot and have been conditioned to deny their own needs. Younger workers, on the other hand, want more freedom and balance in their working lives. Companies need to adapt to meet generational changes and keep employees healthy and happy. So how can your company encourage employees to find that all-important balance? Here are 5 ways to implement health and wellness initiatives in your office.

Don’t Let Lazy Managers Drive Away Your Top Performers

Don’t Let Lazy Managers Drive Away Your Top Performers | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Many people believe that being a good manager only requires common sense, and that it is therefore easy to be one. If this were true, good managers would be commonplace at all levels of more organizations, and as a result, employee engagement and retention would be high. However, only 13% of workers worldwide are engaged at work, and employee turnover rates in the United States are at a 17-year high. As these statistics suggest, either most managers lack common sense, or good management is, in fact, quite challenging in practice.
