Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go:
Career Conversations Employees Want
Presented by Beverly Kaye and Julie Winkle Giulioni
All attendees will receive a raffle ticket for special prizes.
Learn how managers and training professionals can help others ‘grow with the flow’, translating the sometimes static task of development into a dynamic and organic process that’s embedded into all work and learning.
Despite the current economic conditions, rising unemployment levels, or any other business factor imaginable, your best employees – the ones you need most – want one thing from you, plain and simple: to support their growth and development. Engagement research confirms that development is the single most powerful tool managers have for driving commitment and productivity.
Yet, career development is frequently the thing that gets sidelined unless or until the organization demands that some form be submitted during regular review cycles.
