Web language translated at workshop

E-learning system developer RMR is hosting a series of free e-learning
workshops, with the first on 13 September in Oxford. The workshops will discuss
a range of e-learning topics and demystify terms such as SCORM (sharable content
object reference model) and LMS (learning management system). RMR created the
Elevate E-learning authoring software, which provides trainers who have no Web
knowledge with the tools to create an online learning environment. Enrol at the
Elevate website.  www.elevatelearning.com

Staff benefits made central online

Lighthouse Group, the independent financial advice group, has launched a web
portal that enables employees to have instant access to the current value and
status of their employment benefits. Called Working Wealth, the service allows
HR managers at small to medium-sized companies to manage staff benefit
centrally online. It has been developed in partnership with online benefits
software provider 4th Contact. Working Wealth costs from £10 a month per
employee and each individual has a private password to access their account.  www.lighthouseifa.com

E-people get the balance right

Senior e-people are better placed than any other professionals to achieve a
comfortable balance between quality of life and a high income, according to the
latest E-People Report from the Hay Group. It reveals that unlike conventional
business – which pays more for London-based staff, chief execs, heads of
e-commerce and directors of strategy – technology and marketing earn an average
of 14 per cent more when based in the regions rather than the capital.
"Senior e-people are in an exceptional position relative to other senior
professionals. They can move out of London in pursuit of quality of life and
receive a pay rise at the same time – a rather more alluring prospect than the
irksome pay cut usually associated with a move to the provinces," says
Mark Thompson, a consultant at the Hay Group.  www.haygroup.com
