It’s time for season one, episode two of Talent Canada’s HR Boot Camp series. These exclusive sessions are designed to walk employers through the lifecycle of a worker, from recruitment to retirement and all points in between.

In this session, we are focusing on the issue of workplace training and development.

Join us, and our partners at the Queen’s University Industrial Relations Centre (IRC) for this informative webinar on how workplace learning can revitalize your workforce and help your organization succeed in the post-pandemic world. As businesses adapt to the new normal, there is a greater need to invest in employee development, re-skilling and up-skilling to stay competitive.

In this free webinar, our expert speakers will discuss the importance of T&D in building a resilient and agile workforce, and share practical strategies for designing and implementing effective training programs that drive business outcomes. You will learn how training can:

  • Boost employee engagement and retention
  • Develop skills and competencies for the new digital economy
  • Support career growth and succession planning
  • Improve productivity and operational efficiencies
  • Enhance customer satisfaction and loyalty.
