In recent years, training and development in organizations has undergone a remarkable transformation. The development of talent is increasingly viewed as a top priority and a key source of competitive advantage. In addition, technological advances now allow learning to occur on-demand and virtually anywhere and at anytime.

Although these and other changes have created exciting new opportunities, they have also led to emerging challenges and questions. In this session, we will use recent advances in training research to examine a number of these questions surrounding the design, delivery, and evaluation of organizational training programs.

People with disabilities are 15% of the world’s population (one billion people), and yet are significantly unemployed and underemployed compared to their nondisabled peers globally. In addition, with an aging workforce and veterans returning from conflict, business organizations need to be prepared to effectively accommodate workers with disabilities who want to contribute to society and be productively employed. In this interactive event, you will learn how to: Structure a disability-inclusive hiring process. Promote equitable opportunities for career advancement and retention for employees with disabilities. Create a successful accommodation process that maximizes productivity for all employees. Take initial steps to design a broad-based disability inclusion strategy that is tailored to the needs of your own organization.

New research suggests that cultivating leadership from within an organization leads to greater success for the company and the individual who’s been promoted. Professor Elias will answer your questions and offer practical information on how you can unlock the hidden potential of your internal workforce for successful leadership.
