- Custom Learning Solutions
Corporate learning is undergoing a digital transformation. Today’s employees expect to access learning on demand and via multiple devices, as well as be highly interactive and directly relevant to their individual roles.
- TrueBlue AppWerks specializes in supporting enterprise change initiatives, such as introducing new tools, processes or methodologies, through customized learning programs.
- By creating a custom learning solution, we help analyze, design, develop, implement and evaluate a right-fit learning program that aligns with your business objectives. Our framework aims to deliver a holistic learning experience that covers learning through practice (experience), collaboration (exposure), as well as structure and formality (education).
To customize a learning solution per your organization’s specific needs, we generally start with conducting a training needs assessment and gap analysis of your business or business function. This process includes identifying key performance indicators to measure and show value to the business. Our experts then develop a curriculum and supporting content, including picking the appropriate mix of delivery channels for the audience, such as instructor-led training, virtual instructor-led training, e-learning (traditional, micro, mobile), videos and job aids.
- Our custom learning solutions span:
- Learning needs analysis and program design
- Skills assessment and competency mapping
- Instructor-led and virtual instructor-led
- Self-directed learning
- Games and simulations
- Performance support and supplemental assets (e.g., “how-to” videos, knowledge repositories, job aids and documented best practices)
- Coaching and mentoring
- Enabling communities of practice and peer-to-peer learning
- Learning program tracking and reporting
- IT Direct Placement Services
- In a competitive IT job market, hiring managers struggle to find top talent to lead key business initiatives.
