For as long as I can remember it has been common in the warehouse and distribution business to use temporary workers to fill gaps and handle seasonal spikes in volume. It is a great way to get workers into your operation quickly without the long process of recruiting, screening, interviewing, hiring, etc.
How is your customer service? What do people say about how they’re treated when they call about a product or service that you offer? When you call someone about a product or service that you need, what has your own experience been? And how can eLearning make a difference?
Traditionally, sales organizations launched new products at massive sales events. Expensive, onsite events. Lots of travel, time out of the field and lots of easily forgettable brouhaha about new products. This format, while exciting at the time, left many holes in training effectiveness: products change rapidly, new products are formed more than once a year, a single training event does not produce long-term effects. Fortunately, multimodal learning has replaced the single event. While many companies may still have a large annual sales event, the actual learning may be delivered in many ways, continuously over time. All good changes that contribute to better retention, faster time to market and true just-in-time access.
When it comes to keeping your employees safe while on the job everyone agrees it is the right, necessary and even legal thing to do. What many disagree about is how best to deliver the safety training.
