"Using Technology to Optimize your Greatest Asset: Talent" by Holly DePalma, MEA Managing Director
Our economy is on a significant growth trajectory, and has been for a few years. With that comes classic supply and demand challenges. Simply, there aren’t enough people to do the jobs that need to be done. How do you maintain your organizational growth plan with limited trained talent resources? And moreover, how do you keep the talent that you’ve trained from going elsewhere? And how in the world is technology going to help me do this? We are looking forward to providing an insightful discussion about how adding objective data in the discussion of human capital can be the missing variable in your drive towards work place efficiencies. Specifically we will identify how behavioral and cognitive assessments can add process and an objective plan to who to hire, how to train, who has leadership potential and overall how do you keep employees engaged and acting like owners every day in your organization.
"CFM Newsletter: Creating and Sharing Learning Content" by R.L. Shamwell, CEO CFM
Your feedback and input is encouraged in the creation of a newsletter focused on practitioner audiences (ID, T&D, HE, Technologist), and related organizations. The newsletter will provide concise news and information snapshots, vignettes, and brief inputs from audience experts, or those with information to be circulated to the above audiences. This monthly online publication will be accessible by computer, laptop, or Smartphone. For busy people on the run with time being a premium, a short, succinct , and easy briefing helps with information flow, while being short enough to remember to put on your phone calendar, email list, and add a number for contact in case follow up is required. All PADLA folks are encouraged to submit their articles on related topics to be considered for publication by contacting R.L. Shamwell.
