How Do We Keep Up With Change?

With dynamic change coming to the health care industry, we are looking at redesigning our training road map. How do we keep pace with the changes to make sure our career development programs are touching on the most vital things?  — Staggered, human resource executive, health care consulting, Illinois

How Do We Deliver Performance-Based Learning?

I’m working on a project team to boost how we design, deliver and administer performance-based learning. There doesn’t seem to be an out-of-the-box way to do this for our services organization of 600 people. Strategically speaking, how do we achieve our goal? — Map But No Direction, Health Care, Jacksonville, Florida

How Important Is Sticking to Job Descriptions?

What is the protocol when our executive team requests salaried employees to perform work outside their job description? It is a situation that has occurred before, resulting in some salaried workers having to work weekends/off days to keep up with their regularly described duties. Job duties of a salaried employee often are fluid, but would it be better for us simply to abandon job descriptions? I wonder about things like employee burnout, turnover, stress levels and engagement. — Concerned VP, energy/utilities, Newfoundland
