What are competencies?
William J. Rothwell, PhD, SPHR, CPLP
Pick up any college textbook on HR management, and it will likely begin with a chapter to define HR and then the next chapter will usually describe job analysis, and its product the job description, as the foundation of all HR. In theoretical terms, every function of HR is based on job descriptions. Job descriptions literally describe the work to be done. They are the foundation for recruiting, selecting, appraising/evaluating, rewarding, training, development and disciplining workers.

Millennials: How are we preparing to become leaders?
Luciano Gregoretti
According to Wikipedia, if you were born between the 1981 and the 1996, you will be identified as a Millennial. With the exception of a few who are still in college and a small group that already got into leadership roles, most of you (or I should say us, considering that I’m myself in my late 20s) are now situated in the earlier stages of our careers. However, within 15-20 years the majority of the so called "Millennial Generation" will be in the position of leading people and organizations.

Much ado about baby boomer professional services pros
Professional Services Journal
Steve Kayser, a contributor for Professional Services Journal, writes: "I overheard a couple of people talking about a person they work with who was 'older' and no longer contributing to their business. This person, in their opinion, apparently couldn't or wouldn't learn new skills — or for that matter, even keep up with the skill set needed to perform the job."

Multigenerational learning
Training Pros
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. This white paper is the second in a series by TrainingPros in partnership with corporate learning and development leaders.

Hiring for attitude
Training Industry
A "hire for attitude, train for aptitude" strategy has merit and works for certain organizations. However, it requires changes (potentially significant ones) to a company's infrastructure, process and organizational design, and, above all, an increase in a company's training budget. Interestingly enough, it also requires a change in attitude on the part of the human resources and training departments.

How to evaluate your workplace training
Administrate
Workplace training can be incredibly important, regardless of which industry your business is in. However, while allowing your staff to participate in training is important, it is also crucial that you measure the effectiveness of any training that takes place in your workplace. There's no point in running training sessions just for the sake of them, as the main goal is to make sure your staff come out with the required knowledge. Evaluating workplace training will allow you to see how successful a session was, as well as seeing what you staff thought about it. This will allow you to see where improvements need to be made, and let you alter future sessions so your training is a successful as possible.

Top 5 tips for visual design in eLearning
eLearning Industry
No doubt, eLearning professionals spend countless hours choosing the right content for their eLearning courses. They also do their best to ensure that the navigability is smooth and seamless. However, there is one essential element of the eLearning course development that is usually overlooked and this in no other than the visual design. This isn't to say that eLearning professionals don't pay attention to the aesthetic appeal of their eLearning courses. However, it is often low-ranking on the to-do's list, which means that little time is devoted to this crucial aspect of eLearning course design.

Making the case for gamification in corporate eLearning
Talent Blog
Introducing gamification into a corporate eLearning environment can be challenging. You may be faced with resistance and questions about mixing "work" with "games." If this happens, change the conversation from gamification to problem solving. Focus on the problem you're trying to solve — delivering engaging courses which improve staff performance. By directing the conversation towards course improvement, you will have a greater chance of introducing elements of gamification.

Comparing asynchronous and synchronous learning
Learning Solutions Magazine
When a company decides to embark on an eLearning project, there are many decisions to make. One of these decisions is about making the choice between synchronous and asynchronous learning. In synchronous learning, the instructor and the students are present at the same time and place (whether a physical location or virtual). Asynchronous learning is independent learning, and students can proceed at any time and at their own pace, whether the instructor and the other students are present or not. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each of these approaches?
