 Talent Engagement: A Secret Weapon

Robin Thompson MS

Keeping people engaged in training is more of a challenge today than ever before. The U.S. spent over $70 billion on training in 2014. It is costing companies millions of dollars for employees’ time away from the job to attend training. If they are engaged and learning, it is time and money well spent. How do we ensure that we have created an environment where people will be engaged? This presentation uses strategic level experiential activities to teach training and development professionals ways of creating a productive, engaging and committed environment.
