Blogging with TrainingZone


As Jon mentioned in the Editor's Blog, you may have noticed some changes following TrainingZone’s big upgrade. The most major of these changes is the removal of Discussion Groups. If you previously ran a group, we want to apologise for not making you aware of this sooner. Unfortunately, while we’ve been seeing more and more excellent content from members on the site, groups were very quiet when compared to other areas, especially Any Answers and Blogs.

Performance Management or Employee Development? Is there a Way to Merge Both?

If you ask an employee on what a performance management is, he or she will mention that it is nothing but the annual appraisal of his or her performance followed by salary revisions.

Training admin- what's your least favourite task?

I am a person that doesn't enjoy paperwork or admin tasks. I'd much rather be delivering training sessions or working with a client to implement a new training system. When I am running a course, I class the following as admin tasks:

  • Emailing attendance reminders
  • Emailing payment reminders
  • Booking rooms
  • Ordering Lunch
  • Posting certificates

All are essential tasks, however they do seem to detract from the enjoyment of delivering training. What are your least enjoyable tasks?
