Webinar: Making Onboarding More Human

Posted by Josh Cardoz on Wed, Jun 14, 2017

Think back to your first day on the job. What was your most memorable moment? Was it learning about the mission statement of your organization? Or various semi-interesting factoids? Or was it the first friendly face you met? Or the first time you felt safe and empowered on the job?

Posted by Adam Gallotta on Thu, Mar 16, 2017

In 2004, the Motorola Razr V3 was one of the most popular cell phone choices, according to PC World, and touchscreens were unheard of. According to TechCrunch, it's expected that a full 70 percent of the world's population will have smartphones by the year 2020, and the average smartphone owner already checks the phone up to 85 times a day. So what does this mean for your HR or L&D department? Because we have come to use smartphones on such a daily — and really, hourly — basis, they provide a prime opportunity to make use of mobile learning technology to help employees learn faster and retain more.
