Driving Agility through Cloud-Based Microlearning, Bulletins and Best Practices in Digital Learning

With so much for people managers and corporate trainers to factor in when developing their post-pandemic Return-to-Work initiatives, organizations are turning to resourceful teaching approaches to ensure that employees are provided with the right training to be successful. In parallel, companies are also leveraging effective communications techniques to ensure their workers remain connected – both to their managers as well as to each other. While this is taking place, leaders continue to put their strategic focus on business continuity.

Impossible? We think not. Feasible? With the right tools and techniques – very much so.

Redefining Training to Drive Agility


At the highest level, what has become clear is that not only do the techniques, tools and processes we introduce have to work well in today’s climate, equally as importantly, they have to help workers become agile to adapt to future changes. Decision makers are now realizing that this idea, which … Read more...

Intelex’s Software Set + the SAFER Framework = A Robust 360° Return-to-Work Solution

With the quarantine phase of the COVID-19 outbreak reaching an end in many areas, organizations have started planning their return-to-work initiatives, with some having already launched them.

Let’s look ahead – not to just the immediate “return” phase, but the phase after that- what we’ve defined as the “reimagine” phase.

Our Return to Work Initiative: Respond, Return and Reimagine


When developing our return-to-work program, we decided the best approach would be a phased one. Similar to the concept of continuous deployment, breaking down the plan to allow individuals to quickly process, adapt, and execute practices and procedures makes it more manageable for employers and employees alike.

To summarize each phase and their objectives:

  1. Respond: involves the immediate steps taken during the initial outbreak
  2. Return: introduces short-term changes implemented to address all the newly discovered issues
  3. Reimagine: implements long-terms policies, procedures and best practices to create an agile and resilient workforce

What Is a Process Hazard Analysis and When Should You Do One?

When done correctly, a process hazard analysis identifies, evaluates, and controls the hazards found in processes that involve hazardous chemicals.

A process hazard analysis (PHA) is a set of organized and systematic assessments of the potential hazards associated with an industrial process in order to prevent and mitigate risks. When done correctly, a PHA identifies, evaluates, and controls the hazards found in processes that involve hazardous chemicals.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires PHAs to be updated and revalidated every five years. However, PHAs must be updated if aspects of your process change, including the addition or subtraction of equipment or hazardous substances or any change that could introduce a new hazard into the workplace.

Bad Process Safety = Bad Headlines

Every company wants to make headlines for great business practices, increasing profits, being recognized as an employer of choice, and being perceived as an asset to the … Read more...

A Call for Reducing the Environmental Footprint on Air Pollution

Why Businesses Can’t View this as a Choice Anymore

Did you know that according to The United Nations Statistics Division, the levels of carbon dioxide and methanehave increased by 40% and 150% respectively in the last 100 years?  

When you really think about it, it should come as no surprise given the steady increase in the demand for fossil fuels, unenforced regulations or governance and lastly, the increasing rates of competition and globalization.  

This brings us to why reducing the environmental footprint has returned to the spotlight – and rightfully so. With the environmental footprint being a very broad topic and with the celebration of Earth Day yesterday, it might be time to revisit the issue of air pollution.

Some Interesting Facts about Air Pollution 

Let’s start by taking a look at some interesting facts: 

  • From an industry perspective, the top offenders are energy (80%), agriculture (14%), industrial processes (4%), and waste (~3%). 
  • From a geographic

Celebrate Earth Day at home by doing these five activities.

During this difficult time, we’ve all had to adapt to our new normal in our own way. If there were any silver lining to come from this, it would be that with people staying at home and fewer cars on the road, things have never been better for climate change. But we still have a long way to go.

Earth Day Turns 50 and Goes Digital

Amid the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic, Earth Day Network, the global organizer of Earth Day, is marking the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with the first Digital Earth Day, a global digital mobilization on April 22 to address the most urgent threats to people and the planet.
