    • Awaken to your own personal mindsets
    • Receive guidance on how develop four mindsets necessary for success

    Recognition in the workplace has been a hot topic recently (insert the seemingly mandatory Gallup quote about 33% of employees being engaged at work). Our December Learning Event is all about recognition -- specifically, recognition of our volunteers.

    In conjunction with our annual awards ceremony, join us in a discussion about how recognition events improve team member engagement and support productivity. And what are the best practices to ensuring that such recognition programs have the desired impact?

    Join presenter Devin C. Hughes as he addresses ways any organization can creatively and sustainably boost team member engagement through recognition.

    We will be sharing insights in between our own volunteer recognition and board transition, holiday spirit, friends and fellowship.

    About Our Presenter

    Devin C. Hughes is an author, speaker, consultant, executive coach, and an internationally recognized expert on how work is evolving.

    Devin has been consulting, training, speaking and writing about personal development and organizational change for the last decade. His approach draws from the science of positive psychology, positive organizational research, appreciative inquiry, neuroscience, mindset and mindfulness. It’s for this very reason that people come away from his keynotes entertained, inspired and motivated – but more importantly, with the practical, applicable, actionable tactics and strategies for acting on their inspiration and motivation. By the end of his talks, seminars and workshops, participants are equipped to deal with the day-to-day challenges they face.

    He inspires people to achieve their personal and organizational goals faster by capitalizing on the power of the “Optimism, Positivity & Inclusion”. With a wealth of experience, he knows what it takes to generate meaningful change that will unite and inspire an organization.

    The State of the Industry report is ATD's annual review of talent development trends, spending, and activities.  In 2017, this report indicated that the
    • Average Direct Learning Expenditure per Employee had increased to $1,273 per year.
    • Average Learning Hours Used Per Employee had increased to 34.1 hours per year.
    What will these numbers look like in today's environment? 

    We'll review those numbers, and also take a look at how organizational learning portfolios are being broken down,  and discuss if the report's findings are commensurate with your experiences here in Orange County.

    We'll also review ATD-Orange County's annual report - a discussion on key accomplishments within our community as it supports OC talent development professionals.

    Join us (online) as we discuss the key developments within our industry of the past year and how to apply the data to our own learning and development strategies.
