Everyone Can Play – Gamification in Extended Enterprise Learning

Brandon Hall Group Platinum Preferred Provider Docebo has made extended enterprise learning a core focus for its solutions, helping its customers engage external learning audiences of all kinds. They have been leveraging their extensive gamification elements including producing badges that learners can share on LinkedIn. Adding gamification to learning provides new opportunities to collect data on learner engagement, retention, and specific outcomes. Tracking and reporting on extended enterprise learning has always been difficult, but the Docebo gamification elements feed this data into the system for better insights. Docebo also recognizes that, while fun at its core, gamification is not without its challenges, especially for the extended enterprise. They have comprehensive tools to manage various privacy and visibility concerns that may arise within different audiences.

Solving Challenges with Personalized Learning

As companies look to an uncertain future filled with shifting remote/on-site workforce dynamics, increased attrition and a volatile world economy, many feel as if they are unprepared to face it, at least from a skills perspective. Only half of companies in Brandon Hall Group’s 2021 State of Learning Practices Study believe their approach to learning positions them well to meet that future. This means that the other half must figure out their learning strategy quickly, since the future of work is already here.

How Great Customer Training Drives Business Results

L&D teams need to leverage their expertise in creating engaging, impactful programs for employees and creating them for customers. Internal learners are essentially a captive audience, even if learning is not mandatory. In the customer experience, engagement and satisfaction are even more critical, as the learners have paid for the privilege of learning in one way or another.

Building the Business Case for Next-Generation Learning Technology

If organizations want to demonstrate the impact learning is having on the business, they will need to strongly align their learning approaches — and the programs they produce — with business outcomes. Otherwise, learning will continue to operate in a vacuum. Understanding the needs of the business and incorporating those with the needs of learners will help supercharge learning to drive organizational performance.

Developing Content for a Hybrid Learning Audience

randon Hall Group Platinum Preferred Provider Docebo long ago recognized the need for organizations to have access to more digital, on-demand content and have solutions that enable companies to build and buy what they need. First, the Docebo content marketplace provides access to a comprehensive library of content focused on skills companies need to succeed. This content is great for a hybrid environment as it includes a spectrum of material from complete, in-depth programs to microlearning, providing flexibility to meet the needs of any kind of learning audience.

Technical Skills Are No Longer Enough: Why Business Leaders Are Prioritizing Behavioral Capabilities

Strong behavioral skills empower employees to adapt to change in all areas of work. Behavioral skills, by their nature, are suited to a more individualized learning approach. But many organizations — and especially larger enterprise organizations — still tilt toward a one-size-fits-all approach instead of learning tailored to individual needs.

Onboarding and Beyond: Making Learning Continuous

At a time when companies seek to remove as much friction as possible from the ways people engage with learning, onboarding is a key place where friction abounds. Disjointed processes, functions, and systems keep new hires bouncing around until they are assimilated and set on their paths. The paths should be clearer from the beginning.
