Turning New Hire Training from “a Bunch of Paperwork” into a Motivational Game

Denise Wilson (CPLP, Vice President, Capital City Bank)
Judy Albers (Director, Learning Strategist, Intrepid Learning)

In retail banking, like many regulated industries, the entry-level customer service employees have complicated jobs combining relationship skills, compliance with complicated regulations, and adherence to frequently changing policies and procedures—all skills conventional wisdom still says are difficult if not impossible to solve effectively with online learning technology, particularly if the learning is self-directed.

Learn how Capital City Bank turned a once burdensome onboarding program into one that engages and motivates new tellers. They tackled the onboarding challenge with a self-directed online learning experience that meets all five ‘moments of learning need’, offers intuitive performance support, provides career path opportunities for all tellers, and reinforces corporate culture.

As one teller said, “Starting a new job is usually a bunch of paperwork. This is a game, I want to see how I do!” Plus, they designed the site to work as a performance support tool for experienced tellers, AND got them to actually use it.

“IMS Health Case Study: Innovative Metrics Strategy for Technology-Enabled Learning”

Mike Duffy (CLO, IMS Health)
Sam Herring (CEO, Intrepid Learning)

Learning measurement for innovative tech-enabled programs: everyone knows they need it, but few organizations are actually executing analytics start to finish. One of that vanguard group of metrics-obsessed learning leaders, Mike Duffy, CLO of IMS Health, is passionate about evangelizing methods to design and implement effective measurement backbones for all learning programs. In this case study, presented with Sam Herring, CEO of Intrepid Learning, Duffy will detail how IMS Health approached their 2016-2017 learning strategy and engendered impactful behavioral change for ~10,000 learners and successfully applied analytics best practices to capture meaningful business metrics. IMS Health is seeing profound results, with learners responding positively to the approach. Duffy and Herring will discuss how to design a learning measurement backbone for your online learning programs, best practices for driving and tracking results, choosing the 3-5 behavioral outcomes that will have the most ‘bang for the buck’, and actionable steps for other organizations to take with their own learning initiatives.
