Technology has provided quite a boost for employee training and development. Not only are mobile training solutions revolutionizing the way companies teach their workers the skills needed to be productive, but the digital world has also produced a wealth of information in the space to guide training professionals. The blogosphere is rich with employee training and development websites; here are six blogs that, besides our own (thanks for visiting!), we recommend:
