Employee engagement matters. It improves morale, productivity, and retention. Stronger engagement means stronger performance.
Many factors influence engagement, including the quality of the leader-follower relationship, trust in management, and the use of recognition and rewards.
Career-development activities—especially training—are another strong and sometimes overlooked contributor to engagement. This is particularly true in the managerial ranks. While we know that management-related training produces better managers, companies still don’t always provide it.
One reason has always been cost, but that simply isn’t an excuse with today’s online learning options. In fact, it’s now possible to add more value than we did back in the classroom—at a fraction of the cost.

If you’ve been interested in learning Lotus Notes but haven’t been quite sure where to begin, Up and Running with Lotus Notes offers an introduction to the features of Lotus Notes and how to use them, including discussion of the integrated email, database, calendar, and address book features.
In this movie from chapter two of the course, author Jess Stratton digs into the integrated email feature and shows you how to customize your Lotus Notes email inbox to display and sort emails to coincide with your workflow preferences.
Feeling comfortable with email, but looking for a way to speed up your Lotus Notes productivity? Here’s a quick list of Jess’s favorite Lotus Notes keyboard shortcuts:

•Ctrl+m creates a blank new e-mail
•Enter closes the open document you’re working on and opens the next document in your view
•F1 gives you targeted and context-relevant help
