Engaging Gen Y in the Global Workplace

ATD 2014 Session: W115
Paolo Astarita | May 07, 2014 | Video

Generation Y (people born after 1980) is the fastest growing segment in today's workforce. Trelleborg AB, a global company offering sealing solutions, conducted a substantial survey in 2013 asking 1,000 of their Gen Y employees about their needs, desires, and attitudes toward their workplace. Their responses, and follow-up face-to-face workshops conducted on four continents, gave valuable insight to the learning style of this generation, along with best practice in how to hire, retain, and develop this target group. This survey also revealed the diversity that exists between workplace generations. This offers useful awareness and solutions on how to address the different generations and thus optimize the workforce teams. In this interactive session you will be exposed to a real and timely business case with hands-on practical tools and techniques on how to optimize a company's generational diversity, with a focus on Gen Y.

Best Practices: Designing Training for a Global Workforce

ATD 2014 Session: W106
Judy Ravin | May 07, 2014 | Video

Globalization demands that leaders navigate a multitude of training styles, each one impacting the degree to which the trainer is able to engage, motivate, and achieve the highest level of skill acquisition and carryover. Trainers at corporations with multinational team members have an additional need: to ensure maximum learning transfer for every member of their diverse team, including those for whom English is a second language. This session provides actionable tools for using language cues—verbal, written, and visual—so trainers can achieve optimal results for both native and non-native English speakers alike. These practices not only level the playing field for all training participants, they also ensure investment in human capital is optimized to its greatest potential. These training techniques will help you subject matter carryover after the training experience, regardless of subject matter content.

Transforming Global Diversity and Inclusion Into Innovation at Kimberly-Clark

ATD 2014 Session: M108
Dave Eaton | May 05, 2014 | Video

How do you transform a global culture when classroom training is not an option? How do you inspire and engage 20,000 hyper-connected, tablet-toting workers to breakthrough innovation and performance? That was the challenge facing Kimberly-Clark. This presentation will describe its innovative diversity and inclusion initiative, featuring television-style video dramatizations, podcasts, scribe videos, QR codes, blogs, e-learning, and more. The centerpiece of the campaign was a scripted video drama series called the iTent. Some 20,000 leaders and employees could access the show every other week. It dramatized the main learning points about how to optimize the performance of diverse teams by managing people more inclusively. The 'mockumentary' video format of the iTent series was built around the concept of a video team shooting a documentary. Other creative video formats in the Kimberly-Clark campaign were 'scribes' where the story unfolds through a series of sequential artist sketches drawn on a whiteboard and 'machinimas' with avatars shot in a 3D virtual world. A radio-style podcast series featured interviews with company leaders. Interactive, always-on e-learning built on-the-job awareness and competency. Blogging and message boards created communities of learning. The speakers will show how this multi-modality campaign drove transformative behavior and created a more inclusive and innovative workplace.
