There’s been a lack of clarity around what’s needed to comply with 21 CFR Part 11, the US Food and Drug Administration’s regulations for inspecting electronic training records held by organizations.
Implementing electronic signatures and being able to clearly audit their use has often been a considerable challenge for businesses in the life sciences and pharma sectors.
This is an essential requirement for companies in these sectors looking to comply with the FDA’S CFR regulations. In-depth and rigorous auditing is increasingly sought-after by organizations in other sectors too, such as healthcare.
How can a strong talent development strategy help prepare your organization for the future? Find out in this blog based on LinkedIn’s 2018 Workplace Learning Report.
LinkedIn’s 2018 Workplace Learning Report paints an interesting picture of the challenges organizations face to maximize the potential of their workforce. We take a look at the key insights and what they could mean for your talent development strategy.
The report surveyed 4,000 professionals made up of 1,200 L&D or HR professionals, 400 people managers, 200 executives, and 2,200 learners from North America, Europe, and Asia.
Aside from the sunshine, there were plenty of highlights at NextSteps 2018 in San Diego during our annual regional user conference. Clients from a variety of industries shared experiences, best practices, and learned more about the evolution of our core products.
The theme of NextSteps 2018 in San Diego was ‘facilitating learning in a connective world”. Our focus was on where the industry is going and how we are going to get there.
With this in mind, we invited a number of technology visionaries to talk about the impact that emerging technologies will have on L&D functions in the future, and all of our speakers provided fascinating insights.
Patients being treated in hospitals, clinics and specialist facilities expect the highest possible standards of care from medical providers. As a global provider with a long-established reputation for clinical excellence, one healthcare company was spending hundreds of millions of pounds each year upskilling its staff and expanding its technology.
This investment supported a worldwide team of around 8,500 people, including doctors, nurses and a broad range of administrative and technical staff. The training needs of this workforce were varied and sometimes complex.
The ability to meticulously assess and improve learning programmes and staff knowledge across a network of hundreds of workplaces in different countries was a key part of the organization’s growth ambitions.
Transforming systems and creating a powerful healthcare learning ecosystem
Between 2015 and 2016, the healthcare company embarked upon a complete overhaul of its HR IT systems. It had been working with several different platforms, including an HR interface and middleware, all of which needed to be united in a best of breed Learning Management System (LMS) with a compliance focus.
Ongoing, rigorous auditing is a critical challenge for healthcare providers. Audits are carried out on a frequent basis to ensure that companies in the healthcare sector are fully compliant and provide a quality of care that meets industry standards at every level of their organization.
We often hear from L&D teams who are not yet leveraging LMS features that could transform the way they work and improve the learning experience for their employees. In this blog, we look at some LMS features you need for effective learning management.
If you currently have an LMS, how many of its various tools and features do you use on a regular basis?
If you’re looking to purchase an LMS, do you know which tools and features could make a real difference on your team’s day-to-day work?
An LMS is a big investment, and it needs to work for you. An LMS that doesn’t create admin efficiencies, or improve compliance and learner engagement will not deliver significant ROI for your organization.
From our experience advising many leading organizations, we’ve put together a list of ten LMS features that deliver great benefits. In the rest of this blog, we’re going to share a few of our favorites.
