| || Performance & Learning Month 2019 — Learning Leader — Susan McGann|
Susan McGann is a truly inspirational learning leader. She is fun, funny, empathetic, caring and very professional with a joyful drive for success…both for herself and those around her. Susan has a keen sense of when to have a good time and when it’s time to get to work and manages both with passion and enthusiasm.
Susan joined ADP Canada two years ago at a time when the company was embarking on several important transformational changes. As part of the transformation, Enterprise Learning would play an important role in communications, training and the overall success of the programs. During this transformation, many of the Design and Delivery team were new hires who needed support to adapt to a new organization, new systems and a new learning culture. Susan joined the team and immediately put everyone at ease. Her smooth and efficient style paired with her knowledge and expertise, set the stage to improve all facets of Enterprise Learning at ADP Canada. Susan quickly made strong connections with everyone on her teams and built a sense of strong camaraderie-instilling a belief that, together, we would achieve great things! In little over a year, Enterprise Learning has made great strides in moving from a fairly normal order taking training department to a trusted Learning Advisor business unit that is responsive and agile with great skill in many areas.
In addition, the Enterprise Learning Canada team at ADP Canada has had several group and individual awards as well as promotions and growth with Susan’s leadership.
We are fortunate to have a leader that leads by example, cares deeply about the success of the business and about everyone on her team and is a pleasure to follow!
Nominated by Rick Coelho — Instructional Designer, ADP Canada

Scalability is a huge advantage of e-learning over ILT, or instructor-led training. It’s generally very easy to add more learners to an asynchronous online course. But the ease of scaling e-learning has led to its depersonalization, a “one-size-fits-all” mentality. At the same time, personalized e-learning is essential to enabling each employee to perform at full potential.
Microlearning offers a solution, with the ability to create e-learning that is both scalable and personalized.
Numerous studies have noted the brain benefits that come from being bilingual — among them increased executive-level cognitive function and a four- to five-year delay in the risk of developing dementia symptoms. A new University of California, Irvine study, however, has found that monolinguals living in a linguistically diverse environment may be reaping some rewards just by being in the vicinity of multiple languages.
How do you increase learner engagement and knowledge retention? Here are six simple, yet effective tips to keep your learners immersed in your learning content while increasing the effectiveness of your learning initiative.
HR Exchange Network
Corporate learning has become a corporate challenge. Never before has the learning function been under so much scrutiny as it is in today’s work environment. Executives want to see a strong return on investment and the pressure to succeed is mounting on HR and learning professionals. The problem is compounded by the fact the workforce has changed and continues to morph. Millennials are in charge as older generations continue to decline in size, but the millennials won’t be driving the bus for long. Generation Z, also called the iGen, is continuing to grow.
