Social Learning & Technologies- Adam Weisblatt, Learning Technology Specialist, FactSet, will discuss future trends in the social learning space; what types of LMS technologies are employees using; what business groups are most likely to collaborate on social learning tools. Adam will share what the latest news is about these social learning tools and what they are tweeting about!
Mentoring- Kimberly Bates-McCarl, Talent Leader, previously with Thomson Reuters, will share creating and sustaining successful mentoring programs. What are the elements needed and what kind of format works? She will share critical do’s and don’ts to watch out for and facilitate this timely discussion on mentoring.
Employee Engagement- Ross Tartell, Learning Leader North America, GE Capital Real Estate, has recently published several articles on employee engagement. We know from a Towers Watson survey nearly two-thirds of US employees are not fully engaged in their work and are less productive as a result. Ross will present & facilitate a discussion on this critical aspect of work, “It is all about the Manager!”
Come engage with learning and development leaders, share your expertise and learn about the latest trends. You will have the opportunity to participate in two different topic discussions. Don’t miss this opportunity to build your network and expand your expertise!
