    HCMx Radio 08: The Benefit of Simulation in Recruiting and Training

    in Business

    When it comes to running any human resource function, it all boils down to finding and retaining the most talented people that will fit in your organization’s culture.  With that in mind, leaders spend a lot of time focusing on the incremental stages that make up the employee life cycle.  As I thought about what weaves each aspect of the cycle together, it became apparent that having a realistic idea of what the job entails today and what expectations and opportunities are for the role to change and grow is critical to not only attracting the person to the role, but keeping them with the company. 


    In this episode, we talk about how HR leaders can learn and take action using case studies and how Brandon Hall Group members can access award-winning case studies.  We then jump into the importance of simulation in the recruiting function.  Ben comes up with some challenging questions for talent acquisition leaders and recruiters.  He then jumped into how shocking it is that we rely so heavily on interview questions instead of simulation even though simulation will give you much more relevant information.  We talked about using simulation for jobs from administrative to factory positions and then turned to management roles.

    Sim Standard Radio Ep.85 - Kirk Herbstreet,Hack A Drummond,Tyson in UFC, & More

    in Video Games

    Whats up Sim Gamers. We are excited to bring another show to you guys this week. We have a few topics to discuss on tonight's show. We will also answer calls in between discussing topics in the order that they are received.  We look forward to all of your calls, thoughts, and comments. A brief description of tonight's topics is listed below. 


     


    Kirk Herbstreet recently bashed Ed O'Bannon for being part of the reason there isn't an NCAA Football game. Do you agree? How do you feel about Kirk's rant? Do you expect NCAA football to return? 


     


    There use to be a time when we all thought it was genius to Hack A Shaq to slow the game down and put a bad free throw shooter on the line to reduce the amount of points. Last night the Rockets applied the same tactics against Andre Drummond, which sent Drummond to the free throw line 36 times. Drummond would set a NBA record by missing 23 free throws and the Pistons still won the game. How do you feel about the Hack A Whowever? Is it fair? Is it corny? Should there be a rule put in place to prevent it?


     


    Mike Tyson will have an Character in EA's UFC 2. How do you feel about Tyson being in the game? What does that mean for the Fight Night franchise? Is this just an attempt to attract more people to the product?

    1/26/2016 EMS Training: "Flipping the Classroom"

    in Caregiving

    This live webcast of EMS Live in Wisconsin was recorded on Tuesday, January 26, 2016.


    Our guests included two individuals with Lifestar EMS in West Bend, WI - Assistant Training Coordinator Tyler Christifulli and Field Training Educator Sam Ireland.  They discussed how they have successfully been using field educators at their base locations, and also sending out to staff pre-training podcasts to encourage education and discussion. They call their program, "Flipping the classroom".


    Lifestar's approach to EMS education included the following:


    Identifying the epidemic of bad teaching practices that surround EMS.



    Using old power points
    Strict outlines
    Crowded slides


    What has Lifestar done to reinvent the way we approach education?



    Field Educators
    White boards
    Flipping the classroom
    Simplified power points and flip chart


    The techniques of running a good simulation.



    You don't need expensive equipment to run a good sim
    Video recording and critique playback
    Always succeed in simulations
    Takes a lot of preparation to run an efficient and dynamic simulation.


    To view and listen to the February 2016 pre-training podcast, "Patterns, Pathways, and Pain", as an example, completed by Lifestar EMS, click here.


    Join co-hosts Chris Anderson, Joe Covelli, Patrick Ryan, Dan Williams and call-in guests and live listeners for 40-minutes of conversation about emergency medical services and the ambulance industry in Wisconsin the second and fourth Tuesday every month.
