Happy New Year!

As we welcome 2017 and get back into the swing of things after the holidays, the WorkforceGPS Team would like to take this opportunity to highlight a few things you can expect to see from us in 2017.

Two features that will make their debut this year include a membership directory and member-to-member chat.

The membership directory will allow registered WorkforceGPS users to opt in and join to share their public profile with other WorkforceGPS users. This will allow registered users to see the types of Communities and Collections other registered members belong to as well as their latest posted resources. The goal of the directory is to increase peer-to-peer communication.  Member-to-member chat will expand these peer-to-peer communication opportunities by allowing registered WorkforceGPS users to talk to each other online. More details will be released on this new feature in the coming months.

In February, we will give a wrap-up of 2016 on WorkforceGPS and over the coming months we look forward to releasing several new Communities of Practice and Collections.

Throughout this new year, you can rest assured that WorkforceGPS will continue to help you navigate to success.
