Training question - not related to E-Learning
I'm looking for some ideas for a series of in-person workshops (probably lunch-hour sessions) that I can put together to help people further their professional development. Because of the way most of our departments are structured, there aren't a ton of obvious career paths set up, but we want to make sure we provide the great staff we have with a feeling of opportunity and show them how to develop their own path, whether they look to move into a different department or attempt to create a new position based on needs they've determined. I'm also hoping to implement a site-wide job shadow program for new and existing employees, so one workshop will probably revolve around this, once I have it rolling. I'd love to have them be interactive, so we can really provide those that attend with relevant assistance. These types of lunch-hour sessions tend to either draw a huge crowd or flop miserably, so (aside from free pizza) I really want to offer something unique. My goal for now is to hold something each quarter in 2014.
I'd love to hear your thoughts and success stories
