Employee Development on a Shoestring: Developing Talent Outside the Classroom

Employee Development coverWith training budgets slashed and organizations struggling to do more with less, many employees as well as those responsible for their development are challenged to find ways to address employee development needs. While classroom and online training is a popular and first-in-mind development method, it can be costly and complex. In addition to possibly being out of reach for budgetary and cost-to-productivity reasons, even when training is available it may not be the only or the best way to address learning needs. In this interactive workshop, explore other, non-training ways to develop employees on a tight budget. Consider the pros and cons of various non-training development methods, consider the requirements and specifications of three specific employee development ideas, and begin to develop a strategy for implementing new employee development methods for your organization.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and assess various employee development methods that can be applied outside the classroom and on a tight budget.
  • Analyze three specific examples of non-training employee development methods.
  • Develop a strategy for incorporating new development methods for your employees.
