About Our Elearning Training Programs

Having worked with hundreds of managers, HR professionals and employees for more than a decade, we’ve found that there are two sides to the coin that need to be considered when implementing sustainable flexible work practices.

Firstly it is important to create an enabling workplace environment with management commitment and supportive values in action, attitudes, practices, systems and processes. The other side of the coin is the individual responsibility to understand their life goals and take action to achieve the life they want. Successfully managing personal finances is a key to achieving life satisfaction and our personal money mangement online program enables this success.

It is with this in mind that we have developed the two e-learning training programs:

Creating & Managing Flexible Workplaces to develop the workplace that enalbes workplace flexibility and the Your LifeYour Money! Making your life work for you is for individuals to understand their life goals and the steps to take to achieve work/life balance.

Creating & Managing Flexible Workplaces is a 45 minute e-program for managers and employees. It contains 6 modules and a 12 minute video which is part of an exercise to surface and address the challenges to flexible work practices. The video focuses on the issues experienced by two managers, striving to overcome work/life conflicts in a long hours workplace culture.

People undertaking the program are asked to write down the various issues raised in the video and this is used to focus dialogue in the workplace around the challenges to achieving work/life balance.

Module 6 – considers 14 key strategies that enable sustainable flexible workplaces including various management practices and supportive workplace systems and processes.

Benefits Outside the Square an article by Kerry Fallon Horgan

The Mercer study, Benefits Outside the Square, found there to be a real disconnect between what employees are wanting and what employers believe they want in terms of benefits that induce them to stay with an organisation. Only 3 of the top ten benefits that an employer would like match those the employer thinks the employee wants.

What topped the list for baby boomers was for their employers to help them access financial advice and education but less than one third of employers are doing actually doing anything about it. David Anderson, Asia Pacific Business Leader of Mercer outsourcing business, said that improving the financial literacy of employees of all ages can meaningfully improve the productivity and the longevity of a workforce. In the current financial crisis, financial management skills take on an even more crucial role.

Our latest e-learning program, Your Life Your Money! Making your life work for you, enables the personal responsibility needed for success with work/life balance and provides the financial literacy education that employees are seeking. Offering this program as a benefit to employees is a valuable component of an attraction and retention strategy as well as buidling an employer of choice reputation.
