MANAGING PARTNER, SKS CONSULTING GROUP
SKS Consulting Group sets up a Social Learning Network tailored to their business needs
SKS Consulting Group is a talent assessment firm, staffed by PhD-level psychologists. They're on a mission to help others maximize their talent potential and make the right hiring decisions
On that journey, the partners realized they needed a scalable learning and development solution that would let employees learn at their own pace, while still connecting and learning from others
The Challenge: Inconsistencies and time crunch
When SKS called your ID, the partners spent months mentoring new hires one-on-one. The training experience lacked consistency, dependent on how much time partners had
to mentor and develop consulting staff.
The solution had to empower employees to learn, calibrate and collaborate to get people up to speed more quickly. This would enable the organization to continue growing and maintain its reputation as an esteemed service provider and employer.
The Solution: A Social Learning Network
“It has been clear from the beginning that the team knows their stuff, and that they were not attempting to deliver a one-size-fits-all solution. Recommendations have been tailored to the needs of our business and people.” said Nathan.
Following a comprehensive needs analysis, the Your ID team found a social learning network would be the most fitting solution. Our aim?
To create a learning ecosystem that encourages team members to learn, connect, collaborate, and grow together. The deliverables included:
Communities with curated learning pathways, mobile-responsive microlearning, custom videos, and discussion prompts
Implementation support, including admin and moderator training, documentation, and advising
Learning campaigns to drive continuous, collaborative learning across the organization
Storytelling video and a search-friendly knowledge base of over 50 articles
Evaluation Criteria and quarterly employee engagement surveys
System Structure, Community Design & Content Strategy
Enhanced efficiency: With organized resources for reference in place, SKS strategically re-distributed mentoring responsibilities to senior consultants - allowing partners to allocate their time more effectively.
L&D thrives beyond mentorship: With curated learning pathways and a search-friendly user base, everyone actively participates in learning and development. Moreover, individuals are encouraged to join discussion groups, share insights, and foster connections within the organization.
Evolving learning environment: Several months in, SKS's social learning network continues to move forward, powered by employees and a thriving learning culture. It has expanded with lunch 'n learns, book clubs, conversations, and the addition of a Harvard Business Review integration.
Feedback from the client:
Your Instructional Designer has, and continues to be, a great partner to our business. From the needs assessment to solution design to implementation, Nicole and team have been consistently responsive, knowledgeable and professional - not to mention a fun team with whom to work.

MANAGING PARTNER, SKS CONSULTING GROUP
We see it as an absolute win and are beyond honored to have worked with such forward thinkers
MARKETING + MICROLEARNING
+ ON-DEMAND TRAINING LIBRARY
After single-handedly enabling us to transform our nationally distributed, full color, multi-page behavioral health print newsletter into an interactive, mobile-responsive digital masterpiece, Nicole and her team went on to develop an entire library of interactive, Rise 360 behavioral health videos and trainings for us and the more than a quarter of a million employees we now serve.
Beyond her instructional design super powers, Nicole is simply a wonderful person to work with and do business with. I can’t say enough about all that she has brought to Amplified Life Media. It has been an absolute privilege and pleasure to work with her, and I highly recommend her, her team and all they might do for you!
CEO, AMPLIFIED LIFE NETWORK
When Amplified Life reached out to Your ID, they were serving a small group of organizations with print publications and brochures and in-person workshops. To scale their Workplace Wellbeing programming, they knew they had to go digital, so they came to us for strategy and design. Together, we built a digital workplace wellbeing platform and revamped the concept of a PDF newsletter to a mobile-responsive immersive newsletter + microlearning experience with a multimedia marketing campaign for monthly release. Later, we'd take that foundation and expand it to an on-demand training library that enhanced their subscription offering. In two years' time, we produced over 20 newsletters, 18 training library modules, and over 45 videos.
The response from Amplified Life's clients was overwhelmingly positive. Testimonials continue to roll in praising how relevant, engaging, and useful their new digital suite of offerings are.
Today, Amplified Life serves nearly a quarter of million users as a result of this shift to interactive digital learning products.

Whether you're just starting out, or you've been at it for awhile, I confidently believe you will find value in this course."
LEARNING AGENCY OWNER
Your Instructional Designer was early to the digital cohort trend in learning and development with our needs analysis and consulting program, From Data to Design. It is our most popular, and arguably impactful course, for instructional designers on our learning platform, The Upskill Experience. Dripped over 9 weeks, the course walks through an extended scenario to support project-based learning. The experience is developed with a blend of microlearning, video, interactive scenarios, tools, templates, community, and group coaching. The course has received overwhelmingly positive feedback and is pre-approved for use as continuing education towards the Association for Talent Development's CPTD and APTD certifications.
