You may have heard that the SHRM 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition is in Washington, D.C. this year.  For many of you, this will come as no surprise but this meeting is my favorite time of year.  The reason for that is plain and simple--There is no bigger learning, sharing, and developmental event in HR than #SHRM16.  I encourage everyone to see what #SHRM16 and the future of HR are all about

How do we teach the people we hire? Generally, businesses look for people who can already do most of the tasks required of them for a job, then teach them the rest as they work. This is often known as the 70:20:10 rule in learning management, where 70% of employee training comes from simply doing their job, 20% from speaking with their coworkers, and 10% from formal training.
