22 THE DAVEY BULLETIN | March/April 2021 EXPERTISE INAUGURAL 'WINTER SEASON OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING' The Davey Institute did not let COVID-19 derail its commitment to the education and training of Davey's employees. Institute staff used it as an opportunity to create the "Winter Season of Education and Training," which resulted in virtual education and training opportunities spanning from mid-January through early March. DAILY DOSES A large component to the Winter Season of Education and Training were the 45 days of Daily Doses. The Institute invited content experts from across the company to give a live presentation each weekday at 1 p.m. that were available to all employees to attend via Microsoft Teams. The purpose of the Daily Doses was to reach and educate field level employees on a variety of topics. If employees could not attend the live sessions, a recording of each session was uploaded to the Davey's Learning Management System within 24 hours and can be accessed at any time for future reference. The idea was to keep the Daily Doses bite-sized in length (20 to 30 minutes) and the topics diverse so there was a little something for everyone. In the first four weeks, the Daily Doses received roughly 2,000 views. "I really wanted our employees coming away from the Daily Doses with a better understanding of the various services Davey provides, to discover something new about Davey they didn't know before and to learn about the resources available to them," said Mike Veney, manager, Sustainability and Environment. "We want employees to know the Institute is here to help and that we have all of these experts you can reach out to if you have questions or need guidance." LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM One objective for the training season was to get employees to use Davey's Learning Management System (LMS). "The Winter Season of Education and Training is a fantastic way for us to engage with employees," said Dr. Rachel Foot, manager of online content. "It highlights the fact that the LMS contains a variety of educational content that can be studied on an employee's own schedule to meet their individual professional development needs." Throughout the season, each week featured a highlighted course on the LMS. This included one or more existing courses on the LMS employees could explore. The courses covered a variety of topics and provided opportunities to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Foot is hopeful employees who need job-related training will first check the LMS library, which is continually updated. "We hope at the end of the season employees will continue to use the LMS," Foot said. "We are open to feedback. If people have questions or training needs, please reach out to us. We want to hear what you need." Go here: Visit the DaveyConnect "Quick Links" section or Davey.com/lms.
