Most people recognize issues between the generations in the work place exist, but all too often don’t know what to do about it. It is the first time in history we have four generations working side by side. If you don’t think generations matter, think about this…when asked when and where Kennedy died, Traditionalists (ages 70s and 80s) and Baby Boomers (ages mid 50s-60s) said Dallas, Texas of a gunshot, Generation Xer’s (ages 40s to mid 50s) said Martha’s Vineyard and a plane crash, and Millennials (ages 22-late 30s) said Kennedy who? With only 3% of Traditionalists still working full-time and Baby Boomers retiring at a rate of 10,000 per day in the U.S, Millennials will outnumber all other generations in the workplace in 2020.

These are the five main areas where generational issues cause the most challenges in the workplace: technology, authority, balance, loyalty and entitlement.

We're in the season to celebrate the holidays and welcome in the new year. It is also time to evaluate where our learning & development industry has been, where we currently are and what the future holds. This reflection is important so that we understand, as L&D leaders, where the opportunities are for incorporating new learning strategies that can help your business and, as L&D professionals, whether you have the skills, experience and credentials that will make you valuable to the marketplace.

TrainingPros has lived the past with our clients, seen the strategies they have implemented in the last couple of years and hear the direction they are going in the future. We also actively participate in the industry observing the prognostications of the industry luminaries. Based on these observations let’s enjoy a visit from the ghosts of L&D past, present and future.

There are many changes happening in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) space. Companies are investing millions of dollars in implementing ERP systems, but very few resources are provided following the initial phase. Frequently we see that when systems get upgraded, employees are provided only limited training on how to manage the upgrade. This creates a major challenge for companies and can result in lost productivity and return on their investment. Continuous change and frequent software upgrades have become the norm. These changes occur mostly automatically, without warning, and leave companies scrambling to catch up.

So, why is Training as a Service necessary? TrainingPros is offering a service that is unique to the ERP community which we call Training as a Service or TaaS. This initiative was created to address the training gaps in ERP systems, focusing on the four main systems -- SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, and Infor. This service will cover the full spectrum of what an employee’s job entails following a software upgrade. Our goal is to prepare training to be an activity-based training event. We strive to equip employees not only to do their core tasks effectively, but also to help them understand the overall process.
