- Market research consultancy Lieberman Research Worldwide extolled the combination of HighGround, a performance management and employee engagement software provider, and the Litmos learning management system to enhance employee learning and development efforts. So far, they've seen positive results.
- Kent Frazier, director of leadership development for Lierbeman told Tech Target that coaching and career discussions can bring up important learning and development needs, which is why an integrated learning and performance management tool is successful.
- Frazier adds that constant communication is key to ensure employees feel connected, seen and heard — or else problems could get worse.
The combination of a learning management system with that of a performance measurement and communication platform makes perfect sense. Yet, many companies do not yet have tools that actually talk to each other. The example given in this article is a good model for other companies to follow.
HR leaders are beginning to recognize the value in linking performance to learning. Employee training is not a one-off effort. It should be an ongoing, productive practice that all employees need to engage in.
