The Business Benefits of Beyond-the-Basics Onboarding (Research Summary)

 

Complimentary download

 

Brandon Hall Group’s 2017 Onboarding research shows that onboarding — done well and enabled through technology — can have a major positive business impact. Organizations with mature onboarding practices, as defined in our Onboarding Maturity Model, see improvement in Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), such as market penetration, employee engagement, and employee retention. But almost 7 in 10 organizations are missing out on the benefits because of immature onboarding practices. This research summary provides insights from the research, describes the four phases of onboarding, and shows how organizations can maximize the benefit of their onboarding investment.

 

Adapting Learning to Deliver Results on a Tight Budget (Research Summary)

With business needs changing quickly and technology advancing even faster, organizations are constantly reevaluating how they spend their training dollars. The challenge is that the learning budget is almost as likely to decrease as increase. More than ever, learning leaders need to take a hard look at how they are spending their dollars and perhaps make some innovative choices to make the most of what they have. For instance, when an eLearning course costs more than twice as much to produce as a learning game, but is rated only 11% more effective, it might make sense to reconsider priorities. The research summary, based on Brandon Hall Group’s 2017 Training Benchmarking Study, breaks down the average cost of developing a learning experience and shows how leading organizations are beginning to reshape their learning priorities to fit tight budgets and improving technology.

The Successful Switch: How to Select and Implement New Learning Technology (Research Brief)

The corporate learning function is under pressure. Rapidly changing business needs, continually advancing technology, and the arrival of Millennials as the largest generational group in the workforce all require L&D to adapt and evolve. Companies can develop learning strategies to address these conditions, but the right technology is the key to success. Organizations need learning technology that is more agile, adaptive and accessible. An increasing number of organizations are actively looking to switch out their current LMS. This research brief explores the key strategies and processes organizations should follow in determining how to make a change in learning technology.

Succession Management in the Cloud: How Technology Drives Development of High-Potentials (Research Brief)

Developing high-potentials through succession management remains one of the least mature of the  talent  management  processes.  Brandon Hall Group’s 2017 Succession Management research shows that only about one-quarter of organizations have a healthy talent pipeline across critical jobs roles and can utilize data to anticipate and meet future leadership needs.

The Evolution of Onboarding: Trends and Future Opportunities (ebook)

This ebook, based on Brandon Hall Group’s 2017 Evolution of Onboarding Study and a webinar sponsored by SilkRoad, focuses on how onboarding has changed and how organizations can further leverage it to drive employee engagement and retention. This includes using techniques used for onboarding new hires to better assist experienced employees in making transitions within the organization, such as promotions, lateral moves, relocations, re-entry after extended leave, and more.

Wrong Content = Wrong Results (ebook)

Content typically represents a significant chunk of the learning budget, with more than half of companies devoting 20% or more to the creation or acquisition of content. Over the next 12 months, almost one-third of companies expect the amount they spend on content (as a percentage of learning budget) to increase. This ebook, based on 2017 learning research and a webinar sponsored by Axonify, examines leading strategies and practices to ensure your organization develops the best content for any situation.

Rock Solid Assessments Lead to Rock Solid Decisions (ebook)

Assessments are an extremely valuable tool to measure the effectiveness of learning. A strong assessment strategy and tools create many more data-driven opportunities for organizations. This ebook, based on Brandon Hall Group research and a webinar sponsored by Questionmark, discusses the many benefits of assessments, including:

— Enabling informed, defensible personnel decisions

— Mitigation of regulatory compliance risk

— Alignment of workforce competencies with business objectives

— Accurate learning investments based on need

— Effective onboarding of new employees

— The ability to verify skills/knowledge vital to business KPIs

Benchmark Your Recruitment Marketing Maturity Level (Tool to Use)

In order to attract quality talent in this robust, digital economy, organizations are ramping up their sourcing and recruiting practices and technologies by employing recruitment marketing. Brandon Hall Group developed a Recruitment Marketing Maturity Model to help organizations assess where they are in terms of their recruitment capabilities and determine how to improve those capabilities and see better results, one level at a time. This tool enables you to benchmark your organization’s recruitment marketing against the maturity model, which is based on Brandon Hall Group’s 2017 Recruitment Marketing research.

DataNow® Snapshot: Succession Management 2017

DataNow® Snapshots provide highlights of Brandon Hall Group research and illustrate how the data can be filtered by organization size, revenue, corporate performance, and more, using DataNow®, Brandon Hall Group’s HCM research tool. This snapshot provides highlights of the 2017 Succession Management Study. Succession management continues to be one of the least mature talent processes, with 69% of organizations not practicing it at any level, conducting on an ad-hoc basis, or just beginning to define it and understanding the gaps between existing talent and future leadership requirements. Key findings include:

— 44% of organizations do not have any succession management strategy in place, and that balloons to 64% for small organizations and 50% for mid-size organizations.

— The top priority for organizations of all sizes is to improve the talent pipeline in critical talent segments and key job roles.

— Stretch assignments, coaching/mentoring and action learning are the most effective methods to develop high-potential employees.

Impact of High-Level Leadership Development on Effectiveness, KPIs (KnowledgeGraphic)

Having a clear Leadership Development strategy, featuring continuous, multi-modal learning and aligned with business goals, has never been more important. This KnowledgeGraphic, based on Brandon Hall Group’s latest LD research, illustrates the value of a mature approach to leadership development. Organizations that are moving away from traditional methods, which each year show disappointing results, are realizing higher levels of effectiveness and a significant positive impact on key performance indicators such as employee engagement and employee retention.

Report Card on High-Potential Development (KnowledgeGraphic)

This KnowledgeGraphic, based on the 2017 Brandon Hall Group Succession Management research, takes a look at organizations’ priorities around high-potential development and the effectiveness of those products. Overall, while high-potential development is a high priority for most organizations, results are disappointing and only 20% of respondents said succession management efforts are effective. Future reports will focus on strategies for success and recommendations for improvement.

The Impact of Technology on Onboarding Success (KnowledgeGraphic)

Organizations that want to excel in onboarding new hires would be wise to invest in onboarding technology, according to Brandon Hall Group’s 2017 Onboarding Study. Respondents that use a dedicated solution have onboarding programs that are more mature, effective, and have a significantly bigger impact on key business metrics, including employee engagement and retention.
