It’s no surprise, then, that when surveys or inspections occur, staff are unable to perform as required.Read More

The demands of the modern organization require you to look for more efficient ways to help people build their skills. Because of this, organizations are looking beyond traditional classes and courses that take time away from the job, and they’re also focusing on performance support: providing help directly in the flow of people’s work.

Resources such as social technology, EPSS, video, and augmented reality offer new ways to provide employees with instant access to the answers they need.Read More

How can you use your existing assets to create working solutions that prove the worth of this approach?Read More
