Learning perspectives: Multigenerational learning
TRAININGPROs
Today's workforce is more demographically diverse than at any other time, with four generations working side-by-side in companies across the country. The generations have many distinguishing features. They have different ways of gathering and communicating information. They eat and play differently. And, many would agree, they have distinct work ethics that guide their decision-making, adherence to rules and personal interactions.

Are you sick of boring webinars?
Kirkpatrick Partners
Are you sick of boring webinars in which a presenter drones on and the only form of interaction, if any, is a somewhat contrived poll that gathers predictable information of interest only to the presenter? We are tired of them, too, and we are doing something about it. With the increased use of webinars and other online training media, we have made it a goal to push the limits of interaction and personal connection available using these tools.

Continuing education boosts career advancement
Des Moines Register
Though there are many reasons for a nontraditional student to make the decision to attend or return to college after entering the workforce, more workers are attending school on a part-time basis after the work day ends. These students are eager to sharpen skills, meet demands for new technologies or position themselves for promotions or increased job security.

Getting good job really does depend on education
Lansing State Journal
By 2018, 62 percent of Michigan jobs will require higher education, according to Georgetown University's Public Policy Institute. Yet, nonprofit think tank Michigan Future Inc. reports that in the Lansing area, only 27 percent of the population has bachelor's degrees. We need to shift the perception of education from one that's undervalued to one that is considered important and necessary. A high school diploma no longer is enough to succeed and live a comfortable middle class lifestyle. Some post-secondary education is needed, whether it’s a bachelor's degree, certificate or apprenticeship.

Inside a job-training program that's just hellacious enough to get results
Bloomberg Businessweek
In a conference room in Ann Arbor, Mich., an ex-Marine turned helicopter mechanic introduces himself to the assembled group: "Uh, my name is Tinker Bell." He hasn't lost his mind. He has been forced to give up his identity as part of a novel worker-training program conceived by Hossein Nivi, an Iranian-born mechanical engineer and 25-year Ford veteran. In his last role at the carmaker, Nivi developed a worker-training simulation in which trainees work at a calamitous, pretend factory and try to accomplish tasks while actors strive to make life horrible. Seven years ago, he set up Pendaran to sell his brand of worker-training to the broader corporate world.
