The global COVID-19 pandemic has put the healthcare industry under more pressure than any other time in living memory.

When it comes to achieving workplace actualization and learning to be adaptable, where should your organization start?

First, it's important to understand how we've arrived at our current world of work.

Most talent management professionals agree that implementing continuous performance management is critical in today’s fast-moving world.

When questioning if e-learning "works" for corporate training, it's important to review what is really being asked. 

Imagine you’re in art class at school. You’re trying to master watercolor painting, but you’re just not getting the hang of it.

The global pandemic has caused huge changes to the working lives of millions of people. More than 40% of Americans have changed jobs, and reskilling and upskilling continues to be critical.

With many of us changing how we work due to the lockdown, many people might be training virtually for the first time.

The World Economic Forum recently published their prediction of the top 10 skills workers - and organizations - will need in 2025 - and they might not all be the skills you might expect.

This time last year, who would’ve thought that this is where we’d be today? As you may know, the Totara team is based around the world.

Agile performance management is a hot topic. Any manager or HR leader worth their salt knows why:

Accurate and timely reporting is an essential for any learning management system.

When you think about giving feedback to your employees, what’s the first thing you think about? Chances are, you dread the awkward conversation. Lots of managers go so far as to avoid giving employee feedback altogether, especially when it’s negative.

When Douglas Conant took over as CEO of Campbell’s Soup in 2001, it was the worst-performing major food brand of its time.

Things were so bad that a Gallup manager described employee engagement as “the worst ever seen among the Fortune 500.”

The five workplace disruptors are inextricably linked. Tackling each in isolation will have value, but the more of these disruptors you can address, the bigger the impact will be.

Many roles are being phased out as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which harnesses digitalization and increasingly complex, sophisticated technology, takes hold.

Gone are the days of reliably planning far ahead in business. In the last few years, constant uncertainty has led to the shortening of business planning cycles from five years, to three, to one and now even three-month plans.

Over one-third of US workers participate in the gig economy, through either their primary or secondary roles, and more than 85% of these gig workers intend to continue into the next five years.

The amount of technology we use each day is growing and changing rapidly.

Until relatively recently, many organizations have been skeptical about remote working. Managers don’t always trust their people to have the self-discipline or motivation to be productive at home or away from an office, so many have insisted on having people come to the office every day.

No matter how quickly we thought the workplace was changing, nothing can compare to the seismic shift experienced in 2020.

Social learning remains one of the most misunderstood components of the modern workplace learning strategy.

Over the years, we’ve seen many LMS migrations take place in the Totara Partner network.

Here at Totara, we’re always looking to support our partners and customers with great resources and documentation.

The lack of flexibility in online training platforms prevents training and development departments in all sectors to adapt and modernize their learning programs.

After a trying few months, much of the world is now returning to something starting to resemble “normality.” That doesn’t mean that everyone is back to their water cooler conversations or hanging out in the kitchen, but many organizations have reopened

Many of us see choosing a new LMS as the difficult part.
