I love Teams! I use it on my work PC, on my laptop, and on my Samsung Galaxy. Teams enables me to stay in contact with my team, and review work content from any location I might need to have access to it. I’m able to view shared support documentation on the go, to provide the best support to the end users that need my help. Microsoft Teams has changed how me, my team at KnowledgeWave, and how people around the world work & collaborate.
Formerly known as “soft skills” training, professional development is the fastest growing community in the talent development world. Businesses, universities, agencies, and healthcare all agree that technical knowledge is important, and so are professional skills.
Dealing with management, coworkers, and the people we serve, all require that we sharpen our ability to use skills like empathy, adaptability, communications, and more. Leaders in every organization want their employees trained and yet, finding the time to attend this type of learning is hard to come by.
During times of uncertainty, many of us look for things to stay productive. Life doesn't just stop; we still need to meet deadlines for our projects while managing our time between work and family. We also need to take care of ourselves, which includes self-improvement through personal and professional development.
Remote training and online webinars are perfect solutions for those wanting to keep their skills sharp or learn something new. KnowledgeWave is currently offering a special 15% discount on our Remote Technical Training Classes.
The numbers say it all...

It’s a little bit of a chicken-and-egg situation... Office 365 is constantly changing, and the way we work is continuing to change as well.
A move to Office 365 presents new ways for users to work with tools that they are already familiar using. These new ways to work provide considerable benefits, but without basic training users often don’t discover the advantages of using the cloud and Office 365.
Office 365 training helps those new to Office 365 continue to work with familiar apps while incorporating the cloud benefits. The goal is to boost productivity while respecting the natural rhythm of their workflow.
Peanut butter and chocolate. Ham and eggs. Star Wars and J.J. Abrams. Some things are just better together.
Training employees. “Whose job is that? It’s not mine.” I’ve heard this often from my IT peers. They aren’t trying to skirt responsibility, they love technology and want users to embrace the latest enhancements. IT administrators and staff are often tasked with learning about the newest technologies to help their business maintain a competitive edge and meet customer demand. There are many reasons why IT may seem like the best choice for providing training. A common example being the C-suite seeing their IT staff as experts of the newest technology and they want to leverage that expertise.
Employee training. Some people think of it like the ante in poker: it’s the minimum stake to be in the game.

In today's competitive business environment, there is no shortage of training methods available to you. But if you have been immersed in a training program or two before, you know there is a clear difference between an effective-training program and one that runs your team stagnant. With the vast number of training methods and resources available to you, it can be daunting to determine which of these sources are going to equip your employees with the tools they need for better performance.
Having well-trained employees is the dream of every organization. If your current training program isn't covering enough ground or providing enough value, your employees will never receive the adequate training they need to create a competitive advantage for your organization. To overcome this obstacle, establish clear objectives for your new and existing training programs, plus a few key performance indicators to gauge the effectiveness of your program. This way, you won't waste time, effort and money on training efforts that provide little to no value for your team and your organization.

In the age of technology, we are virtually connected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We use technology for everything from scheduling a grocery delivery from our laptops to communicating with a loved one over a text message. Technology, in short, is a way of life. The evolution of technology and its uses, however, aren't immediately adopted by everyone.
