ATD Research: Advancing Innovation

Thursday, January 4, 2018 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Kevin Oakes, CEO, Institute for Corporate Productivity

History shows us that innovation in products, services, work processes, and management drives competitive advantage and success. Recognizing this, the Association for Talent Development (ATD) and the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) recently surveyed 393 talent development leaders across a broad range of industries and locations, seeking to understand the talent development functionâ€ââ€Å¾Â¢s role in teaching and encouraging employees to innovate at successful companies.

The research found that high-performing companies who consistently lead the competition in revenue growth, market share, profitability, and customer satisfaction are more than twice as likely to support innovation with formal strategies and processes compared with lower performers. In fact, talent development functions at top companies provide innovation training to employees organization-wide at a rate seven times that of lower-performing organizations.

Join i4cp to learn about the practices, methods, and programs top companies and their talent development teams use to drive innovation among employees and leaders at all levels.
