Are you exploring mobile learning for your business? You’re not alone. With most Americans having a mobile device within arm’s reach, it’s not surprising that businesses are examining how to use apps, email, voicemail, text, the mobile web, and more for professional learning and training.

Since 1997 the Gallup Organization has surveyed more than 5 million corporate employees with a simple list of 12 questions (called the Q12) to determine whether they are engaged, not engaged, or actively disengaged with their jobs. Not surprisingly, companies with high Q12 scores experience lower turnover, higher sales growth, better productivity, and better customer loyalty.

Knowing how engaged your learners are can help you modify your program strategies and tactics to get everyone more engaged.
