Many organizations are now putting effective skill and career development programs in place to engage and retain key talent and develop talent resources for the future.
In this session, you will learn how to embed employee development practices in your organization's cultural 'DNA'. Join us to learn how to insure that employee development becomes an ongoing organizational priority that supports business strategy.
Why should you Attend:
Employees frequently leave organizations for career advancement opportunities. They can also get bored or stagnant in their jobs without a feeling of growth and getting ahead.
Organizations that succeed at creating a people-development culture enjoy profound competitive advantage by attracting, retaining and engaging talented employees. Many organizations emphatically state their commitment to employee development and set goals for building talent and promoting from within. Yet, often short term pressures drain the development effort and drive external recruiting as the solution, undercutting employee growth and sending a message to the organization that commitment to employee development is weak.
Avoid unwanted turnover, increase performance and improve employee engagement by creating both development programs and consistent habits within your company.
