Don’t let your training fall off of a cliff

Many companies have become more entrenched against the use of My Sites for fear that proprietary information will be leaked; employees will spend their time chatting instead of working; or there will be legal consequences for inappropriate information being exchanged or shared.

Using a Leadership Development example, we will focus on how My Sites can provide a competitive edge through resource location, knowledge sharing, and business process improvement. You will also learn how with “directed play” these connections can be used to enhance the training evolution.

Join us for this TrainingIndustry.com webinar, sponsored by GP Strategies, and at the end of the session you will see that SharePoint and its social networking features within the platform are actually powerful tools that can and should be utilized to your organization’s advantage.

Lessons:
•My Sites can be a vital tool in curriculum development toolbox
•Social networking isn't a choice any longer— it’s how we learn today
•In order to succeed, your company has to be connected internally
