Induction That Works With Ross Stevenson
Induction is common to all most all organisations. What’s also common is getting it wrong. Hours spent delivering slide after slide after slide with no intention of preparing attendees with the information and know-how that will impact their working. This was the case for Ross Stevenson at Trainline.com and this was the reason he decided to do something different - and do something that works. KEY TAKEAWAYS L&D must be seen as absolutely integral to any organisation, so that all of our people recognise the importance and value of developing and growing. By making the learning experience employee-centric, instead of merely convenient and topic-centric, we can all make the difference required to welcome new starters and prepare them for performance. Far too many organisations still deliver "Death By Powerpoint" presentations, but we all know that this does not work effectively any more. Video content is a fantastic way of creating engagement, and far more attractive to people than simple paperwork that is often ignored. BEST MOMENTS 'I'm the A to Z of L&D' 'If we invest in people we can help people grow and have high performing teams' 'To make sure that we provide people with a real value-add experience touches on a human and a digital element' 'It's about not having a finite approach, and looking at an infinite approach' VALUABLE RESOURC ES The Learning And Development Podcast - https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-learning-development-podcast/id1466927523 ABOUT THE GUEST Ross is Senior Learning & Talent Development Manager at Trainline.com, having previously been Digital Learning Manager at Tesco.

Overfed and Under Nourished: Too Much Fat, Too Little Nutrition | Dr. Andrew Freeman
It is possible to eat 4,000 or 5,000 or even 10,000 calories a day and still be malnourished! While the diet of an average American is filled with fat and calories it is sadly lacking the essential vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to function healthfully. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, there are four times as many people who are obese or overweight and malnourished compared to those who are underweight and battling the same malnourishment. On this episode of The Exam Room™, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Andrew Freeman to discuss why a large waist size is too easily mistaken for overnutrition rather than the nutrient desert it is. "If left untreated, malnutrition leads to serious health conditions including diabetes, hypertension and heart disease," Dr. Freeman says. Dr. Freeman’s research is then put to the test when Chuck calculates the nutrient values of his previous high fat 10,000-calorie diet. The results are shocking! — — — Vote For The Exam Room!
