Bridge, TWU’s new employee learning system, is up and running. Bridge originally was developed by the company behind Canvas, TWU's online coursework system, but is specifically designed to meet the needs of employees. Bridge serves as both the repository for online courses, as well as the tracking system for both online and in-person courses.
The Bridge system:
- Allows TWU employees to know exactly what training they are required to complete, and when each training is due
- Allows supervisors to easily see what training their employees need to complete
- Provides both employees and supervisors with automatic emails about any upcoming or overdue courses
- Allows supervisors access to various reporting and analysis tools to help them manage employee learning
Initially, Risk Management training and the Office of General Counsel Ethics training will be available in Bridge, with required training from Human Resources and other departments to be added in the near future. The goal is for Bridge to house all online employee training currently in Canvas and other systems and to utilize Bridge to record all employee training and professional development courses.
All TWU Employees are encouraged to access Bridge now and review the training courses that have been assigned to them by Risk Management and the Office of General Counsel.
The Office of General Counsel, in collaboration with Human Resources, has migrated the Ethics Training that is required annually for all employees to Bridge. Employees will begin receiving reminders to complete this training on or around the anniversary of their date of hire. Employees will receive reminders to complete Risk Management training depending on when the training was last completed and the required retraining frequency.
In addition to required compliance training, employees can self-enroll in various training and professional development courses from the Bridge "learning library," including all of the courses available from LinkedIn Learning. Supervisors can easily enroll their employees in additional courses, either from the learning library or by creating their own training material in Bridge.
Get started by completing the brief course "Learning in Bridge: Overview.” Your TWU email address and login password are all you need to access Bridge. If you notice any errors in your training records, or for additional information on how to easily create a course in Bridge, contact Matt Moustakas in Risk Management.
