The Benefit that Empowers Employees

 

Rapid shifts in technology, labor markets, and the overall global economic environment have all impacted the employment experience in recent years. When youth unemployment hit crisis levels in 2012, approaching 20% in some of the world’s largest states and over 50% in some other well-established economies, the debate over how jobs match up with employee skill sets became urgent. Some business initiatives began to try to define the skill set of the future, committing energy towards a kind of educational specialization that would help supply, in employment terms, meet demand.

Education & Success

The Education Pathway to Economic Well-Being

 

Education is traditionally linked to individual success in life, particularly an individual’s chances for achieving wealth and prosperity. Higher education results in more skill and knowledge to secure higher income. Recent shifts in labor markets—to include greater participation from more countries, producing more international competition—have also supported that view. As advanced economies encountered new competition from regions like South America, Eastern Europe, and Asia—it emerged clearly that the most successful were more educated, workers educated up to and in some cases, well beyond Western standards.

The ROI Lens for Online Learning

Posted by Cherie McInturff on Apr 3, 2018 11:00:00 AM

From Qualitative to Quantitative Gain

 

Business processes can be carefully calibrated, well-defined, widely available—and, if lacking good execution, worthless. Transmission of that knowledge is transformational and the essential element is training. Team members with good process knowledge perform better, with confidence, and understand their own talent as an asset to the company, generating a culture of high performance and elevated capability.

 

This understanding is at the heart of online training. By directly enabling employees with process knowledge, productivity improves. Employees understand their own talent to be important and relevant; their proficiency neither assumed, nor intractably established. There is room for human development. Employers, in turn, understand that this expertise will be a valuable asset. They see cultivating talent to improve business as a capital investment, rather than a sunk cost.

Engagement Strategies: Emerging Insights to Motivate Online Students

 

 

Learning an entirely new subject, gaining proficiency in a skill set or even mastering it are ambitions that can now be accomplished with Internet access and massive open online courses (MOOCs). While MOOCs offer increased flexibility as a unique learning platform, they also present unique challenges—student motivation being a top example.
