Want to learn how to increase your organization’s training effectiveness by 90 percent?

Then join us in this fun & practical session!

Bob Nelson, best-selling author (5+ million books sold) and the leading authority on employee recognition, engagement and retention will explain how to apply positive reinforcement, dubbed “The Greatest Management Principle in the World,” to your training function and classes.

Help make the connection between training, career development and employee retention: 59 percent of today’s organizations cite career development as a primary objective of their training programs and 67 percent hope that such training drives employee engagement.

Find out what you can do to create a more viable career development program that will address the needs of every worker to get ahead in his or her careers, given that a lack of career growth options is one of the leading reasons why employees leave their organizations today.

Attendees of this session will:

1) Better understand the power of positive reinforcement and how to apply that principle to training activities and the training function in your organization.

2) Learn how to better engage your employees to make training more relevant to their jobs and career aspirations.

3) Leave the session with ideas and practical strategies that can be immediately implemented back in your organization.
