Written by

Talk about timing flying! This year seemed to go by even more quickly than usual. Maybe that's because we had so much keeping us busy! Here are a few highlights in case you missed anything.

CORPORATE CULTURE SHINES LIGHT ON CHARACTER

Written by Laura Francis

In the unending war for talent, one factor that organizations use to set themselves apart is their culture. We're the fun company! We're the place to work if you want to get ahead. We're the company with perks you've never thought about needing and no titles to bog you down. We're the firm where all self-respecting [insert job category here] work.

Whatever their spiel is, companies do their best to tell people what makes them unique.

WOMEN GET MORE DONE THAN MEN

Written by Laura Francis

Politics can be an ugly business. The infighting, the backstabbing, the name calling—sounds a lot like middle school, frankly.

In an episode of the wonderful political drama of the late 1990s and early 2000s, The West Wing, a character says there are two things you never want the public to see you make: laws and sausages. I'm paraphrasing from memory, but the point was...

ATD 2015

Written by Laura Francis

This year’s ATD International Conference and Exposition in Orlando, Florida promises to be a jam-packed and exciting event. Will you be part of this massive event for the training and development industry?

Not only will River have a booth at the event, Randy Emelo will be speaking at two sessions at the conference, and Randy will also have his new book, Modern Mentoring, available for purchase and for personalized signings!

As we all prepare for the holiday season and the New Year, I find myself reflecting on the past year as it comes to a close. 2014 kept all of us here at River on our toes and provided some exciting moments. I wanted to share a few highlights from this past year with you, our coveted clients, advocates, and followers...

RIVER: A JOURNEY IN LEARNING

Written by

It is with great delight and pride that I would like to announce that our company name, Triple Creek, will now officially be River. You may ask: Why River? Besides wanting to emulate our awesome and award-winning social learning software, we decided to consolidate our creeks into a much more powerful body of water, a River. Rivers are waterways that provide sustenance to communities and are harnessed to produce power...

Let’s just say that we are ready to take organizational social learning to the next level. Want to know more? Here’s a sneak peak of what’s to come for those of you who are teeming with the same excitement that I am. Next month...

DISRUPTION FOR THE SAKE OF IMPROVEMENT

Written by Laura Francis

I’m not someone who typically has liked change.  I’ll deal with it and move on, but I don’t normally seek it out.  I’m certainly not someone who loves chaos. But between managing a marketing team in an emerging and ever-evolving space, and caring for my 4-year-old son with special needs, it seems my world is hellbent on keeping me on my toes.  I guess that’s a good thing, though, since now I know I can deal with change and chaos and still thrive.  It definitely has...

RIVER & GETABSTRACT: THE SMART WAY TO LEARN AT WORK

Written by Randy Emelo

Learning is about changing behaviors and improving the way we work. As advocates of the 70-20-10 model, we know that people learn from others (socially), through their experience and the experiences of others (experientially) and through training materials (formally). With River, we seek to bring elements from all of these learning modalities together at the appropriate moment of need to help people learn and, thus, perform better as a result...

Learning is at the core of everything we do—not only as a company, but also as human beings. As the creators of River, our goal is to create lasting learning cultures that fully maximize our clients’ learning investments. So we challenged ourselves to answer this question, “How can we help our clients get more out of their organizational learning?” To help answer this question...

2014: A BIG YEAR FOR LEARNING

Written by Randy Emelo

Can you feel it? The winds of change are blowing… 2014 will be a big year for learning as we see it continue to move from being administrative and reactionary into a function that can proactively help us build and sustain the workforce of the future. Here are some of my predictions for where I see the direction of corporate learning heading in 2014...

EASIER LEARNING CONNECTIONS THE FOCUS OF NEW ENHANCEMENTS TO RIVER

Written by Laura Francis

When your company tagline is “We bring learning to social,” there’s no equivocation on what we value and work toward every day: learning.  As such, we are excited about the latest enhancements to River, which came out on July 10. Our latest update to River includes new features such as: A robust activity feed—similar to those of Facebook and LinkedIn—that displays the latest updates for an employee’s learning engagements on the individual’s home page...

GET FULL-SPECTRUM LEARNING FROM THE 70:20:10 MODEL

Written by Randy Emelo

This month, the new 70:20:10 Forum is launching, led by my colleague in the UK, Charles Jennings.  This made me start thinking about what a wonderful model it is for encompassing the full spectrum of how people learn.  It makes the intangible tangible and helps us understand how and where people are learning in our organization, which can then help us set up learning initiatives that can have a bigger impact on our organizations. Here’s a quick refresher for you on the 70:20:10 model...

Did you miss our webinar hosted by HCI in February? Not to worry! We’ve got you covered.  Watch a recorded version of the webinar below, and hear Pam Cradic of Humana and Randy Emelo of Triple Creek discuss, “Dynamic Learning Networks: How Humana is Transforming Learning Through Smart Knowledge Sharing.”  In this webinar, you will learn about...

RIVER: ENABLING DYNAMIC LEARNING NETWORKS

Written by Randy Emelo

After more than 10 years in the learning software space, one overarching theme has made itself quite clear: There is a fundamental organizational need to equip individuals with the knowledge they need to do their jobs well. Seems simple and straightforward enough, right? But what we’ve come to realize is that there are many degrees and variances when it comes to learning. What Sally needs may not be what Bob needs, even though they are both in the same role at the company...

In the spirit of the coming New Year, we have spent some time reflecting on our past history as an organization and examining how it will impact and determine the direction of our future. Over the past decade, our company has pushed boundaries, expanded mindsets, led the charge, and basically colored outside the lines when it comes to mentoring. We’ve heard from people who want to use technology to connect with as many colleagues as they can so that they can share their knowledge and learn from their coworkers...

KUDOS: IT IS ALL THE RAGE

Written by

I challenge you to find a software solution that has a social-collaborative element to it and not come face-to-face with some type of recognition or reputation feature. Who among us hasn’t liked something on Facebook or recommended somebody on LinkedIn? What started out as ‘liking’ and giving a thumbs-up has evolved into more personalized and meaningful feedback mechanisms within some business-centered solutions...

WE'RE GONNA BE BIG

Written by

In my last blog entry, I wrote about the marriage of people-centric and people-first learning approaches. As I reflected on what I wrote, I can’t help but think about something that one of our shareholders likes to say from time-to-time: “We’re gonna be big!” The reality is that the time is considerably more right for River than it ever has been before. Why? Allow me to expound by looking at what organizations need from their learning practices today...
