first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Business and financial advisers Grant Thornton is currently piloting ablended training programme, provided by Balance Learning. Four trainers and four team leaders are in the final stages of ‘Leadershipand Teamwork’, a blended programme showing how facilitation skills can improveteamwork and enhance business performance. “We were keen to pilot a dedicated resource to test whether blendedlearning could provide effective and efficient training while reducing theduration of face-to-face training,” said Sue Cohen, senior trainingmanager at Grant Thornton. “The main benefit is that the e-learningensures the delegates reach a certain level of knowledge before they come to aworkshop,” she said. The pilot group is now engaged in the final part of the programme, whichinvolves action-based learning activities designed to help the group transferthe learning back to the workplace. “The pilot group preferred the blended approach to either puree-learning or face-to-face training,” Cohen said. “The process hasraised cultural issues for Grant Thornton, which need to be overcome – notably,how we create a conducive environment for delegates to access e-learning attheir desks.” Previous Article Next Article Grant Thornton tests for the right balanceOn 1 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. last_img read more

Coughlin / Office of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo)NEW YORK — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo observed Columbus Day on Monday by dedicating a statue of the Italian-American saint known as Mother Cabrini in lower Manhattan.The unveiling of the statue came a year after Cuomo announced that the state would commission a monument to the Roman Catholic nun who was canonized in 1946. It stands in a spot by the Hudson River with a view of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.St. Frances Xavier Cabrini was born in 1850 in what is now the Lombardy region of Italy. She immigrated to the United States in 1889 and went on to found schools, hospitals and orphanages. She died in 1917.“Today the lesson of Mother Cabrini is even more vital because of the challenges we are facing,” Cuomo said on Monday. Cuomo and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, both Democrats, would normally spend Columbus Day marching in the city’s Columbus Day Parade, but this year’s parade was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.last_img read more
