You’ve got a new course or learning resource and it’s a great learning opportunity for your staff. How do you get the word out?
[ ] Memo from the boss?
[ ] eMail from the Learning Coordinator?
[ ] Flyer in the break room? (or elevator, stairwell, restroom…)
[ ] Text announcement on your intranet?
[ ] “Gamified” approach?
[ ] Hallway conversations from an internal maven?
[ ] All of the above
Have Some Fun
Most of us don’t think of financial management as particularly enjoyable. Last Mile Learning launched its new Financial Management Learning Path with a fun Cosmo-style quiz to ask viewers to check their financial fluency (click here for the quiz).
Market Your Learning
LINGOs’ Last Mile Learning is marketing learning resources more than once and in various ways. For busy development professionals, particularly those who travel internationally and may miss an email that isn’t hugely urgent, so it’s vital to have more than one opportunity for staff to learn about it.
Actively market your learning! For-profit-companies don’t send an email about a new product and then sit back and wait for customers to empty the shelves. They advertise! Not-for-profit charities do marketing, as well. Use those marketing resources to increase awareness of your learning resources.
The “Financial Fluency Quiz” was promoted through a newsletter (click here to subscribe), many LinkedIn Community Groups, the Last Mile Learning Facebook Page, tweets (and re-tweets) and various e-distribution groups. In fact, you can forward it, too!
