London UK, 25 May 2016: New independent research from Towards Maturity, supported by Kallidus, reveals that the retail sector may be wedded to formal learning and has yet to explore the benefits of social and informal learning despite its growing commitment to investing in learning technologies and building its internal learning team. What can today's learning leaders teach us about using evidence to support performance and capability? Mindset, behaviour, values and the ability to reflect, change and grow are all valuable characteristics - but are they being nurtured?

Using emojis in your email subject lines adds both humor and playfulness to your messages, so before adding in that silly winking guy that looks half drunk consider the tone of your email. As a successful marketer, it’s important to understand the different ways you should and should not be using emojis. The social media has said they will soon stop counting photos and links as part of its 140 character limit for messages. Links currently can take up to 23 characters, even after Twitter automatically shortens them. New data, however, suggests that the buying habits of the majority of Millennials isn’t much different from the rest of the population. The survey showed that millennials made more purchases on retail goods and food (specifically dining out) than other generations, but still managed to spend far less money overall. Millennials dined out 13 times per month, more than Generation X (eight) and Baby Boomers (five), yet spent less ($103) on monthly dining than Generation X ($123) and Baby Boomers ($139). Millennials tend to fan out their spending much more evenly over credit cards, cash, and debit than any other generation.
With the average American still consuming 71% of his or her media on television, not shockingly is the fact that 46% of the rest of the population (made up mainly of millennials) don’t even own a tv. Data (and well frankly my local grocery store) shows that when millennials want to get their booze on they reach for indie brews over what their parents kept in the cooler – Bud, Coors, Miller, etc.
So, if you are looking to create a product or service that the average millennial consumer is likely to buy, it seems that you can’t go wrong with anything convenient and media driven. This has been said many times before:  You could create the greatest, most riveting of all content in the world, but what is the point if no one sees it?
With this knowledge at the tip of your brain, you know just how important it is to get those backlinks and increase the traffic to your site. There is something that you can easily do to ensure that  you are giving yourself the best opportunity for a big pay-off.
The folks at Wise Startup Blog implemented their strategy that they spelled out in a neat easy to understand infographic below and increased their traffic by an amazing 7000%!
Adblock Plus, one of the most popular ad blocking services, is now openly being referred to as the Scrooge of the internet by more than just publishers and advertisers. The idea is brilliant in theory, however the long tail of things would seemingly get messy for most.
Flattr Plus promises to pay those that create the stories, videos, and art on the Internet.
Flattr Plus lets you pay for online content with less effort, says Adblock Plus’ communications and operations manager Ben Williams. The problem with this concept is, that most of us take in a bunch of content each and everyday. Let’s face it, unless you are completely entrenched in the world of Affiliate Marketing and only push commissioned product, your business probably accepts credit card payments in one for or another. Credit card processing fees might be unavoidable, but here’s the good news: You can still reduce these fees and save your business money with some careful planning and research. Just as with any service that you secure for your small business, you want to get the best deal out there by first doing a little comparison shopping. Start with a simple Google search to help you find a list of merchant processors to choose from. Startup Fee: This one time cost to set up your account could be in excess of $99 depending on the provider you choose. Transaction Fee: This is the merchant provider’s charge for covering costs of network, equipment, etc and may be between 10 cents to $1 per transaction. Some payment providers such as SagePay or PayPoint offer just a payment gateway (the bit of technology that sits between your website and the payment networks). The main thing to consider here is, are you looking for more of a plug and go kind of services (such as PayPal and Stripe) or do you have a tech team at your disposal to help you set up the needed software? Getting an account with one of the combined providers tends to be easier than getting a merchant account, and tends to involve fewer setup and monthly fees. Whether a defendant has clearly and conspicuously disclosed the lack of an affiliation with the trademark owner is also given significant weight.  Including a prominent disclosure and linking to the trademark owner’s official website is relevant when assessing the existence of a bad faith intent to profit. The ACPA authorizes a court to order the forfeiture of the subject domain name to the owner of the trademark and monetary damages, including maximum statutory damages of $100,000, per act of cybersquatting.  Attorneys’ fees may also be awarded to a plaintiff should the court determine that a defendant’s conduct is willful or intentional.
If the owner of a disputed domain name is unable to be located, the trademark holder may be able to  initiate an in rem action against a domain name in the judicial district in which the domain name registrar, domain name registry or other domain name authority that registered or assigned the domain name is located. Note that a losing party in a UDRP proceeding can file suit in federal court to reverse a UDRP ruling.  In fact, courts are empowered to award attorneys’ fees and damages to a losing party in a UDRP proceeding if it is determined that the proceeding was knowingly initiated in bad faith.

Unfortunately, we (marketers as a whole) seem to be getting worse rather than better when it comes to email etiquette. To help drive the point home a little more, here are a few common email mistakes that should be avoided.
Vague Subject Lines: We all typically scan our inbox by first looking to the sender then to the subject line. Email is certainly not dying or dropping out of toolbag anytime soon, which means we need to continue to stay on our toes.
The infographic below put together by AussiEssay spells out the 8 Hallmarks Of Great Content. It’s not too late for you though to turn your tax cart around and lower your yearly tax expenses.
Many business owners let the fear of the IRS keep them from taking deductions, which can lead to them paying more out to the IRS.
Expenses your business incurs before your first sale are considered startup costs (such as computers, equipment, office space, etc).
This is probably the hardest and most easily made mistake small business owners make (myself included).
This of course will raise up a red flag to the IRS, causing unnecessary attention to come your way. The best way to avoid this pitfall is to simply keep business and personal expenses separate. In the current day, when you barely have time to swipe a cup of coffee from your Keurig, Podcasts have become a pivotal tool for the busy entrepreneur. Not all podcasts are audio only–this one is driven by video interviews, great for those of you who tend to zone out without a picture to focus on.

One of the best things about this podcast is how broad its topics go–entrepreneurs from every walk of life are discussed, giving listeners vast amounts of information to mull over and be wowed by. This is one of the most in-depth and content-heavy podcasts for those who are just getting their feet off the ground.

Just saying it outloud makes your heart sink into your gut, thinking that it this one thing is a major hurdle that you are unsure how to get past. It would be nice to just look on a chart or graph somewhere to find out exactly how much money your particular business will need to get going, unfortunately that is not the case. The above is just the main guts of most any business that will help you get a rough view into the amount of capital that you will need.
With that said, you have three main avenues that can be traveled in order to start a business with little money out of pocket. In every single business venture that I personally have delved into has started with a grandiose idea of how we could scale the business to not only be profitable but also to grow to it’s utmost capacity. Look at your big picture, all shiny and pretty, churning out thousands of bank rolls at a time. For instance, you can often cut such expenses as employees (and all the tax fees that go with them) and higher either freelancers or do most of the work yourself. Your third path is all about to reaching out to your core networking circle to obtain funding. With one of the above three paths, you should be able to reduce your out of pocket expenses to almost nothing.

Most of us think that these are some kind of written documents but it is not so, rather communication strategies are simply the way we think about a problem or an issue and the way we use to sort out that problem. As long as we interact with more and more people whether it is at college level, social gatherings, official environment or any other area, we are judged by the people according to the language we use to interact or simply the vocabulary. The main purpose of communication is to transport the ideas, thoughts and beliefs to another person in a way that communication leads to a mutually accepted decision.
When in a formal communication, one must know how to communicate in a professional way and should avoid like talking in a grapevine.


Through this, the leaders come to know about how an employee can handle the organizational disputes in a constructive manner.
In the corporate environment, if a person is having good communication skills or is a good communicator that means half the battle is won.
Existing Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), and anti-malware system rely on low level network traffic features on program code signatures to detect cyber attacks. There are few devices that can provide good access to common hand-held objects such as product packages, and objects printed with text such as prescription medication bottle. To make it even more complicated, these set of resolved set of IP addresses,also known as flux agents, are spread across many different networks.
In order to satisfy the information needs of Web users and improve the user experience in many Web applications, Recommender Systems. MQTT or Message Queue Telemetry Transport is an Internet Of Things protocol for machine to machine communication. With its rich set of features it forms an important and crucial component in cloud computing. Currently, two of the most daunting problems preventing significant increases in processor speed are thermal and signal delay issues associated with electronic interconnection. Images of metabolic activity in space are then reconstructed by computer analysis, often in modern scanners aided by results from a CT X-ray scan performed on the patient at the same time, in the same machine. Plugging the green gap in the red green- blue triad needed for full-color laser projection and display would help speed the introduction of laser projectors for televisions and movie theaters, which will display much richer colors than other systems, and tiny handheld projectors as in cellphones.
With the meteoric embedded systems along with microprocessor preventing deaths and providing safe guided measures. Complete images of visible surfaces that are rather featureless to the human eye or a video camera can be generated. The platforms may be airplanes or airships (essentially balloons) and may be manned or un-manned with autonomous operation coupled with remote control from the ground.
Another benefit of fibers is that even whenrun alongside each other for long distances, fiber cables experience effectively no crosstalk, in contrast to some types of electrical transmission lines.
For working and exploring in unknown and rough terrain the use of legged robots is advantageous because their movement is less constrained by the shape of the surface on which they have to travel. It is the level and pattern of utilization of energy from different sources in any country, which is an index of industrial development and standard of living. This paper reveals a high efficiency, low emissions combustion process called Photo Detonation which is superior to thermal ignition process like Spark Ignition, Compression Ignition ,Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition. It is connected to both the local generating units and the utility grid thus preventing power outages. Factors that can impact the initiative are Customer behaviour, Initial investment, rapid technology changes, uncertainty over success. Triac can be turned on in each half cycle of the applied voltage by applying a positive or negative voltage to the gate with respect to the terminal 1. An Automated UCB collection instrument to yield improved performance which comprised four subsystems.
In fiscal year 2014, clinicians at Lurie Children's cared for more children than any other pediatric hospital system in Illinois. Frieden made a name for himself in tuberculosis control with the New York City Health Department. Just like you should always know your numbers for your business as a whole, you should also know your analytics for your social media efforts.
The best way to plan any communication strategy is to first know the reason behind formulating any strategy.
Communication skills are the basic building block, when it comes to make sure that that things are going in an effective way and are moving forward.
Therefore, it is very important to polish our communication skills in order to become an epitome in whatever we communicate. However, since hackers can constantly change their attack tactics by, it is extremely difficult for the existing security solutions to detect cyber attacks. One of the devices we are going to discuss in this computer science seminar topic is Portable Camera-Based Assistive Text and Product Label Reading From Hand-Held Objects for Blind Persons. The protocol was invented by Andy Stanford-Clark of IBM, and Arlen Nipper of Cirrus Link Solutions. By advent of this system the world death rate may decrease to greater extent as large percentage of death occur due to earthquake. Intelligent digitizers will be capable of measuring accurately and simultaneously colour and 3D.
HAAPS mean a solar-powered and unmanned airplane or airship, capable of long endurance on-station possibly several years.
The gases, flue gases are first treated for eradication of pollutants before going in to atmosphere. The anti-personnel mines of over 100 million is injuring or killing more than 2000 people a month. Basically energy is utilized in four key sectors of our economy namely Agriculture, industry, commercial and the households. Due to increasing gap between demand and supply of energy there is an urgent need to utilize the different forms of non-conventional energy sources such as solar, wind, biomass etc. Recently many countries had introduced Prepaid Energy Meter using Smart Cards like South Africa, India and England.
Imaging is performed by measuring the echo time delay and intensity of back-reflected or backscattered light. It provides L&D teams with the perfect chance to step back and think about what has led to current organisational successes, before sharing those stories and successes.There is nothing more satisfying at work than thinking over your recent activities and realising that there is a lot to be proud of! They not only need to meet fundamental business targets, but must be dynamic problem solvers who know how to roll with (constant) change.Leadership and management skills really matter - and this includes mindsets, behaviours, values and the ability to reflect, change and grow.
We'll be digging into Towards Maturity's data to see what it tell us about changes in onboarding practice, as well as picking out some practical ideas that could inspire change in your own organisation. Top performing L&D teams are 3-5 times more likely to be delivering improved productivity and agility today and have much to teach us. I have had the pleasure of working with them and their customers for a number of years and have seen first hand their commitment to identifying and sharing great practices that really work.
Stanford Hospital has received Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and Healthgrades gave the hospital its Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence in 2015 and 2016. Lurie Children's was the first pediatric hospital in the country to earn Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, but that's not its only first. Most importantly, different types of communication strategies are formulated to develop good and effective Communication Skills to meet core organizational objectives. ZHT or zero hop distributed hash table was built for high end computing systems with the goal of delivering excellent availability, fault tolerance, high throughput, and low latencies. The advantages of microwave signals are fully utilized in this system.The L and S band microwaves are used here to detect the living body. The material used for braking is normally in the form of a block or pad. The vast majority of the world's trains are equipped with braking systems which use compressed air as the force used to push blocks on to wheels or pads on to discs.
Under this ultimate environment, a walking robot may be an effective and efficient means of detecting and removing mines while ensuring the safety of local residents and people engaged in the removal work.
Using a specialized software, a 3-D CAD model is cut into very thin layers or cross-sections. Measurements are performed using a Michelson interferometer with a low coherence length light source. Only 13% of retailers are investing in blended learning while the average across all sectors is double that figure (26%), with top learning companies nearly three times more likely to be using blends than retail companies (35%).
Seek, support and develop leaders right and you'll have more engaged, productive, and profitable businesses.
It provides contemporary measures that focus on performance improvement and great tactics that help L&D teams become more responsive to the changing needs of business. This research highlights the fact that L&D teams must develop new mind-sets and skills, quickly. When it was founded in 1882 as Maurice Porter Memorial Hospital, it was the first hospital in Chicago dedicated solely to the treatment of children.
Frieden led a program that rapidly reduced TB, including cases of multidrug-resistant TB, by 80 percent.
It is mainly because of the non-availability of an alternative technology that is cost efficient.
Then, depending on the specific method used, the RP machine constructs the part layer by layer until a solid replica of the CAD model is generated. This may be due to a lack of required skills and knowledge, as the research indicates over half lack the confidence in incorporating new media in learning design and only 4% believe their L&D teams have the skills for facilitating collaboration. Benchmarking can help you get started on your way to winning and help you clarify what's been successful - here are 6 perfectly valid reasons to use it.How benchmarking can helpWe are not promising that benchmarking will definitely lead to trophies in the cabinet. So it's no wonder that companies spent nearly $31 billion on leadership programs last year. It leverages the data of its in-depth Benchmark Study, the largest learning technology benchmark in Europe. The hospital expanded and was renamed Children's Memorial Hospital in 1904, and remained as such until 2012. What is more 71% do not believe that their own staff lack skills to manage their own learning. Secondly, the scale of the work ahead, as 95% of respondents want to improve induction with only 39% meeting that goal. Also, just 23% agree that their L&D teams have the skills to use technology for business advantage.
These are tried and tested approaches that we've used in partnership with our clients to produce effective and award-winning learning interventions that deliver impactful change.1. That year, the hospital moved from Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood to a newly built 23-story building in Streeterville, thanks to a $100 million donation from Ann Lurie. Changing the level of air pressure in the pipe causes a change in the state of the brake on each vehicle.  It can apply the brake, release it or hold it "on" after a partial application. The advantages of this process is clear: development of physical models can be accomplished in significantly less time as compared to the machining process. With such a big gap between aspiration and performance, the induction challenge seems daunting but there is evidence that learning innovation is turning the tide. Frieden continues to be a vocal public figure as the CDC addresses the potential threat of the Zika virus to U.S.
Here are six compelling reasons why benchmarking can help turn the possibility of being an award winner into a reality:1.
Additionally, in the medical field, the convergence of medical imaging, CAD, and RP has made it possible to quickly develop medical models. The Towards Maturity benchmarking process gets organisations, and L&D in particular, thinking on the right track.
These aren't the only source of future leaders, of course, as many other potentials are already in-house, out there to be recruited or returning to work after having children. Incredibly, ‘Top Deckers' are 50 times more likely than the lowest performers to improve talent strategies to keep their best people. However, the world of work is changing and organisations are increasingly looking for more modern approaches to learning that support the fast-moving world of work and the needs of an increasingly digital workforce. It’s a great place to start, if you want to establish a strong foundation for change. Work with the subject matter expert or the business customer to identify the main objective of the programme.
Our research with employees in this sector shows that staff are more able to learn for themselves than L&D give them credit for. The vast majority we talked with were frustrated by the lack of transfer back to the job after managers had participated in training. Using real life ideas can help inspire new approaches that will make a difference in your own situation. This will not only help you design the programme, but will also help you measure its effectiveness.
It's very easy in today's busy world to not make time for reflection, yet reflection is critical to success. Inspiration by example We've identified four techniques used by organisations in their induction programmes that relate to the tactics of the top performing organisations highlight in the Towards Maturity Industry Benchmark Report.
The purpose of the Show is to inform and inspire L&D professionals to improve not just their personal performance but that of their organisation. They are three times more likely to use benchmarking as a performance improvement tool - benchmarking against the tactics that improve performance. By benchmarking you enable yourself to reflect, take stock and focus on the activities that really make a difference.2. First, it seems there's a lack of measures put in place for management and leadership training.
While every organisation is different, examples of good practice and innovation in other companies can offer inspiration for change. By reflecting on and analysing organisational performance, activities and practices, L&D can identify organisational strengths and areas of high performance. Secondly, it seems that the learning strategy many apply to management and leadership training is often out of sync with the audience's needs. The leading sports retailer has been providing online onboarding since 2013 with more than 25,000 employees, across the 19 countries going through the programme. Data from Towards Maturity reveals that 83% of new starters like to learn at their own pace, with 44% using their own mobile to learn.With this in mind, Sports Direct used the Adapt multi-device responsive elearning framework for its online content.
Receive your Personalised Benchmark report analysing current performance and tailored action plans valued at £300 - free until 15 July.
Just as importantly, benchmarking identifies weaknesses and those areas of low performance.
It means employees can access the elearning on a smartphone or tablet, giving them maximum flexibility. You can read more about Sports Direct's approach to induction in Inside Learning Technologies & Skills magazine.
Only 39% offer mobile content, and 30% have no plans to implement social media for leadership development. It's no wonder then, that there is a lack of transfer from learning to doing, if the learning doesn't fit in with everyday lives and habits in the first place and isn't focused on supporting performance there and then. Towards Maturity data reveals that 87% of Top Deck organisations agree that top managers are involved in promoting learning, compared with an average of 37%.UK infrastructure company, Story Contracting features a video message from the company owner and Chief Executive, Fred Story in its new online induction. The not for profit organisation champions better work and working lives and has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years. Pinpointing strengths and weaknesses enables L&D and business leaders to really hone in on performance.
This isn't to say there aren't some great examples of modern, blended, performance-focused leadership development - there are some cited in Towards Maturity's paper.
What can we learn from these?How leadership solutions can #makeithappenIt's time to close the gaps and deliver the type of learning solutions that will engage and really help leaders. Benchmarking does what it says: it provides organisations with a benchmark to measure themselves against others. To really help them, we need to offer easy to find performance support that is genuinely useful and relevant to leaders and managers' points of need.
New staff and partners joining Specsavers are able to earn a virtual coin by completing the company's new induction course. You can use it to see how you are performing on various aspects of organisational practice compared to others.
The business then makes a real cash donation to the charity chosen by employees in proportion to the number of virtual coins earned.You can read more about the Specsavers' approach here. Since 2003, over 4,500 organisations and 23,000 learners have contributed to Towards Maturity's leading benchmarks. For example, have you properly embraced mobile learning and are reaping the kinds of benefits that some organisations are enjoying? But we also need to help develop those deeper skills and behaviours in ways that fit with leader's (crazy) lifestyles. What are the top performing companies in the Towards Maturity benchmark doing in terms of mobile learning?
As a baseline, that means moving away from solely ‘event' based learning - three-day workshops or long online courses - and embracing more resource or micro-learning approaches that provide short challenges and tasks as nuggets that help build skills and insights over time. An average of 48% of Benchmark respondents reported that elearning not being tailored sufficiently was a barrier to success.
It can be really useful to know what characteristics top performing companies have in common and what is driving their success.5.
We would say that providing simulations, interactive videos and meaningful games can make smart use of a leaders' precious time, and build the competence and confidence leadership roles require - so ROI for L&D too.
United Biscuits (UB), the company behind household names such as McVitie's, Jaffa Cakes and Penguin, wanted to make sure its induction programme was relevant to both new starters and any existing employees who might access the training. UB used video of real employees talking about their jobs to add relevance and authenticity to the content.You can read more about the experience at United Biscuits in HR Grapevine magazine.
This report gives clear, insightful indicators about your strategy's current strengths and how that compares to your peers.
Supporting or providing social spaces for informal learning and sharing is key too - the how will depend on who your audience is and how they currently work together.Measurement comes into play here as you have managers, teams, and peers providing tailored feedback about performance and application. But leadership and management development is often holistic, and ongoing - like a journey rather than a series of interventions. The aim is to help L&D professionals focus on one area of action that will help them deliver impact.
To track what tools, learning, and performance support is used by an individual is a bit of a red-herring - especially if you're genuinely offering it up to help them in anyway that works for them. And, if improving induction is your focus, there are more ideas in Sponge UK's Rough Guide to Induction. There has to be some bigger, business goals to be measured, alongside the individuals' performance or growth targets, and it might take a little while for the data to come in for these. Louise PasterfieldManaging Director, Sponge UK Louise has more than 20 years' experience in learning and design and is passionate about making elearning absorbing so staff can apply what they have learned immediately into the workplace.Her interest is in how best to harness technology so people can learn, grow and make a difference to their organisations. In terms of those millennials as future leaders - don't leave it too late before you start developing them. In Deloitte's report on this generation, Not only is this generation notoriously flighty and ready to up and leave within two years, but 70% of those ready to jump ship cite lack of leadership training as the reason why.
Just think about how that Personalised Benchmark Report will help you deliver better results.Unsure if you are ready?Benchmarking will help you make up your mind if you should enter an award this year or wait until next year when you have had a chance to build further on current successes.
So to attract and retain talent, and build leaders of tomorrow, open up those digital, multi-device resources -  simulations, diagnostics, videos, podcasts, tools and more to anyone who's interested.
