HR Works: Employees Want to Learn on their Smartphones—Are You Ready?

L&D—learning and development—is moving to the forefront for HR managers, not just for the importance of developing skills, but to maintain engagement and retention of employees who demand to stay up with new developments in their fields. Of course, there are new developments in L&D as well, and one of the most challenging today is the fact that the consumers of our training increasingly want to access it through their smartphones. Here we’ve finally perfected our interactive, PowerPoint, and video skills for the big screen and now we have to accomplish the same task with a screen 2 inches wide.

Fortunately, our guest on episode 53 of HR Works: The Podcast for Human Resources, Micah White, can help. Micah is the director of research and development for CGS Enterprise Learning, an award-winning provider of corporate learning solutions.  He joins us in our series of podcasts being recorded live at BLR’s Workforce L&D conference in Las Vegas where he presented on the topic of mobile design considerations to satisfy mircolearning objectives.
