Employee Development on a Shoestring
March 13-14, 2014, Washington, D.C. Area
With training budgets slashed and organizations struggling to do more with less, many managers and L&D professionals are challenged to find ways to address employee development needs. While classroom and online training is a popular development method, it can be costly and complex. Even when training is available, it may not be the only or best way to address learning needs. In this intensive, interactive workshop, explore ways to develop employees on a tight budget. Consider the pros and cons of various non-training development methods, consider the requirements and specifications of different approaches, and begin to develop a strategy for ‘selling’ and implementing new and cost-effective employee development strategies for your organization.
