As an eight-time winner of the prestigious ASTD BEST Awards--one of only two organizations to do so--TELUS takes great pride in their human capital practices. The Leadership NOW Program is an avenue that drives overall employee engagement for tomorrow's leaders. Collaboration-based technologies are key engagement drivers across TELUS and specifically within the Leadership NOW program, it's vital to ensure the one-year program is meeting the demanding curriculum requirements.
