2. How does My Learning help me and my team get up to speed with Workforce Ready?

Within My Learning, there are learning plans that outline the recommended training paths. As part of each learning plan, My Learning also facilitates the registration and participation of available online, instructor-led classes for your company administrators and super/power users. These online or virtual training courses are live (not recorded) sessions with a trainer. A practice company is provided for each participant to complete hands-on exercises for practical experience in the application. 
 
Once your company administrators and power users complete their training, the deployment team will do a system walkthrough that will show how the system has been configured, allowing the company administrators and power users to connect the training to their system setup. Following the walkthrough, the company administrators and power users will be involved in testing and confirming that the system has been configured correctly and aligns to the expected business processes.
 
Additionally, we get you prepared for your deployment as soon as you make the decision to go with Workforce Ready as your solution. To start, we recommend attending our Preparing for Your Deployment on-demand class, which will help you know what to do to get ready for your deployment. We also offer a Change Management class and a toolkit with more than 20 communication documents, worksheets, and tools to assist in planning the Workforce Ready rollout.
