    Program Description
    The pandemic has caused a great deal of disruption in talent acquisition and the way teams find and retain talent. Changes in candidate expectations, the Great Resignation and resulting increase in open roles, virtual interviewing and onboarding, remote workers – all have loaded new demands on recruiting teams and fundamentally changed the approach to finding talent.
     
    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a whopping 19 million workers quit their jobs between March 2021 and July 2021. We’ll discuss the underlying societal causes that are changing worker perspectives and impacting the talent shortage and look at how the volatility and dire nature of these talent challenges call for a broader focus on recruitment, retention and engagement.
     
    Discussion Points:
    • What are you seeing as the biggest reasons for the talent shortage?
    • What is the impact of remote work on hiring and retention?
    • What can you do to help your organization or your clients’ organizations to improve employee engagement and retention?

    All too often, evaluation is an end-of-process step at best or ignored at worst. Sometimes, because of the way professionals in our field are organized in the workplace, evaluation is considered someone else’s responsibility. But knowing the desired outcomes and impact from training is critical to informing more meaningful instructional design. This session approaches instructional design from an evaluation perspective and offers a model for designing more impactful training programs by starting with the evaluation in mind. This gives you greater credibility when demonstrating the value you provide to the business leaders you support. This program is intended to be a practical application session, so please bring a learning program you are in the process of designing, will be designing, or think will be needed or helpful in the future. By attending this session, you will be able to:

    • Use evaluation tools to inform instructional design strategies.
    • Create learning activities that are linked to desired impact.
    • Deliver an evaluation plan with every instructional design package.
