The Personalization of Employee Learning Through New Innovation

Tuesday, October 13, 2015 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Dan Schawbel, Managing Partner, Millennial Branding

In the war for talent, corporations are struggling to not only attract employees with the right skills, but to retain them. A strong employee learning and development program, customized to fit the needs of today's workforce, is more important today than ever before. Achieving this has become increasingly challenging as companies have had to adjust their curriculum and resources to serve upcoming generations of workers, including Millennials and Generation Z.

In addition, new technology has changed the relationship that companies and employees have when it comes to learning. Training courses, tutorials, and information are readily available on tablets, smartphones, and wearable technologies that didn't exist a decade ago, and this pool of knowledge is growing larger every day. This presentation will:

  • Explain the role of technology in servicing your learning objectives.
  • Give you strategies that will help you better tailor your content to support your current and future employees.
