    Moving from Paper Manuals to Online Learning

    Join us to hear how H&R Block changed the way their organization learns with an eBooks strategy.

    Steve Wilton is the Manager of eLearning & Operations for H&R Block headquartered in downtown Kansas City, MO. He has over 35 years of journalism, editing, and print production experience from working at newspapers and magazines in Kansas. He has been with H&R Block for over 15 serving in a variety of roles. Currently, Steve is focused on eLearning training materials and training reporting. His team is responsible for the transformation converting traditional print training materials for over 110,000 Tax Professionals to electronic eBook format.

    Leveraging a background in program design, marketing, and creative solutions in small business and not-for-profit sectors, Billy Miller widened his scope with Learning Technology at H&R Block. In a project manager role, his primary duty has been to facilitate the transformation of learning documents from printed books and static documents to dynamic, interactive content, while preparing our audience to engage with that content through change management and communication. As he oversees the project, Billy works as the lead administrator of the platform and facilitates a governance group for continuous improvement and maintaining content standards.

    Chris Fischer is the Associate Manager of Editing & Production at the H&R Block headquarters in Kansas City, MO. He has over 18 years of journalism, editing, and print production experience, between his newspaper background and six years in Learning & Development at H&R Block. Chris has been an integral part of the company’s switch from print to digital training formats over the past three years. His team is responsible for teaching training developers how to use the eBook development tool, governing publication and other processes, and ensuring that the materials produced are of the highest standards before they are released to over 110,000 company and field associates.

    Changing a Company’s Culture, One Year at a Time: Lockton Companies’ Move to Strategic Risk Consulting

    Just like many industries being disrupted by technological advancements, local insurance broker Lockton Companies has been challenged with a changing business environment. Due to the Great Recession of 2008, Lockton’s clients don’t need a broker to suggest coverages and make recommendations anymore. All that can be done using technology. Now, clients need a business partner that identifies opportunities within the balance sheet for savings using the leverage of insurance costs. To reposition the relationship to one of consultant, the Associate Development team at Lockton, led by Jim Facinelli, built on an existing training program, increasing the variety of learning modalities, involving higher-level leadership accountabilities, and pushing the mindset down into the organization by introducing concepts and skills sooner in the Lockton Associate’s learning lifecycle. Join us to hear from Jim about…

    • A organizational change model and how that looked at Lockton Companies
    • The clues that surfaced indicating success or gaps in behavior change
    • How the team determined the best solutions to address the gaps
    • Current state of the culture change across the organization and potential next steps
