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.

No Training? No excuse.

Chris Pharo, News Editor at The Sun, is in the dock at Kingston Crown Court.  He is accused – along with others – of paying serving police officers, those working in high security prisons and  members of the armed forces for stories.  Paying public officials – all of whom are bound by laws covering confidentiality – counts as conspiracy and so the charges Pharo faces are serious indeed.  If convicted he faces a lengthy period behind bars – where, at least, he’ll know plenty of people.

So you have this employee, and while they’re dependable, they don’t really do all that much except show up every day. They can’t give you much information about how sales went, or tell you what’s running low in stock, or do much except take orders, and in some cases all they do is take up space. They’ve been with you since the beginning, but it’s as if they’re just incapable of evolving to meet the needs of the company. It’s time to fire your old cash register.

Make your website one of the world’s most popular: the secret? SEO!

I was snooping around the net at the weekend and wanted to find out the most popular websites. I had a vague idea of what they might be, but just wanted a current list.

Take a look at the list!

Now your website may not be on this list, you probably check it for its Google ranking and get piqued when it’s not at the top.

The Missing Link

How come if almost every L&D professional I meet recognise and accept that much of what is taught to employees is forgotten REALLY quickly, that the L&D community is not actively engaged in providing a solution?  If you run a training business big or small and want to bnefit from our research and white papers in this critical area, feel free to email me and i will provide them free.
