Talent Development to the Rescue: How L&D Professionals Can Positively Impact Retention Efforts & Reduce Turnover
7:55 a.m. – 8:55 a.m.
Presented by: Cara Stiletto, MBA, Cresendo Strategies
Focusing on retaining talent should be priority #1 for your company. But, with changing employee demographics and expectations, as well as evolving business needs and technology, employers can't take the "same old" approach to talent development if they're to succeed at retaining talent. Right now, talent development professionals sit in a unique sweet spot for impacting the organization and its bottom line. Workforce L&D 2017 kicks off by showing you how your role in cultural transitions, executive leadership development, new-hire orientation, retirement knowledge transfer planning, and more will play a critical role in ensuring successful employee retention efforts as your organization moves forward.

Gamification for Talent Development: Key Design Principles Proven to Drive Learning Success
10:55 a.m. – 12:10 p.m.
Presented by: Carol Leaman, Axonify, Inc.
Gamification can improve learner satisfaction and retention, and increase knowledge and skill gains among employees. Choosing the right gamification can be a huge asset to HR and training professionals, but the difficult part is implementing “proper design.” Your goals as the trainer, communication with the employee, and the proverbial toolkit you use will all play a part in whether your experience is a success. Thankfully, with a few science-driven recommendations, you can be on your way to an effective learning and development program that leverages gamification. This session will focus on how different organizations are using gamification as a talent development technique and how, when properly designed, it can work for your organization.

You’ll learn:

  • Examples of successful uses of gamification for developing talent
  • Why making learning fun is a valuable goal for designers
  • The differences between gamification, simulations, and serious games as learning tools and how to tell when it’s best to use each
  • How games can provide assessments of learning and training transfer
  • How badges, points, and leaderboards are just one little piece of the gamification toolkit

12:10 p.m. – 1:10 p.m.

Training Up: What It Takes to Develop Lasting, Engaged Leaders
1:10 p.m. – 2:35 p.m.
Presented by: Dan Day, TRACOM Group
You want the best out of current and future departmental and organizational leaders. But, what should you be doing to help them excel as impactful leaders? Being a manager doesn’t always translate into being a natural leader, and leaders aren’t always high performers. There can be lots of reasons for this—sometimes the manager lacks accountability, self-awareness, or the ability to attract and inspire talent. So, what can you do to ensure that managers at all levels of the business cultivate their leadership capabilities?

During this session, you’ll learn:

  • How to engage leaders in your company’s mission and business goals
  • How to assess leadership development strategy strengths and weaknesses
  • Examples of how to nurture talent to stay strong as leaders, regardless of changes to the business structure, company’s goals, and other variables
  • How to help leaders recognize their own communication style and the styles of others to develop stronger teams

Millennials at Work: Top Employment Brands’ Strategies for Continuous Learning and Engagement
2:55 p.m. – 3:55 p.m.
Presented by: Tanya Bakalov, BetterSkills Inc.
According to Bersin by Deloitte’s Future of Corporate Learning report, Millennials crave training and development above benefits like flexible schedules and cash bonuses. A PwC report, Millennials at Work: Reshaping the Workplace, reflects the same sentiment, noting that Millennials want constant feedback and encouragement and are likely to embrace digital learning delivery methods. Since Millennials have surpassed Generation X as the largest segment of the workforce, it’s important to understand precisely what millennial learners expect from work and how you can deliver it in an effective way. This session will examine how successful employment brands like Yelp, Adobe, Salesforce, and Facebook approach learning and development to ensure that Millennials and other generations of workers are continuously engaged.

The Data-Driven Leader: Case Studies on How People Analytics Can Be Used to Evaluate the Strategic Alignment of Business and L&D Goals
4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Presented by: Jenny Dearborn, SAP
It’s important for corporate learning and talent management professionals to understand what makes various aspects of the underlying business successful. Only then can they effectively evaluate how their learning programs can be improved upon to drive future business success. Enter big data. With data analytics, L&D stakeholders can identify new types of learning content to training requirements, examine learning patterns, user interaction with learning content—and, in turn, create personalized learning content that meets learners’ needs—and predict future learning needs. This session will provide real-life examples through case studies on how data analytics related to HR and people management can be used to foster L&D strategy.

Mentoring Hub: How to Formalize Knowledge Transfer Opportunities to Zap the Skills Gap
10:40 a.m. – 11:40 a.m.
Pew Research Center reports that 10,000 baby boomers reach age 65 each day. That means more and more boomers are retiring. Whether employees depart due to retirement, other job opportunities, or personal reasons, when they leave they take invaluable knowledge with them. And, it’s not enough for a departing worker to write a manual on their duties for successors to follow. To stay at the top of the talent management game, it’s important to focus on tacit knowledge, which is rooted in workers’ skills, their experiences, and their ideas. This session will:

  • Explain the difference between information and knowledge
  • Provide real-life examples of how knowledge transfer experiences—some as short as 1 minute—among mentors and mentees can be integrated into every day work life to ensure that the workforce is well prepared for talent shortages
  • Reveal expert tips on how to formalize knowledge transfer experiences so your mentoring program is equipped to zap the skills gap

How to Make Required Training Fun—Yes, We Said Fun!
11:45 a.m. – 12:35 p.m.
Presented by: Gina Worthey, Worthey Solutions International
Training on legal and compliance obligations related to reporting of workplace harassment, safety training, fiduciary responsibilities, or other areas may be mandatory under federal or state law depending on your industry, specific workers’ roles, etc. But, just because you’re legally required to address a certain subject matter doesn’t mean the content of the training needs to be so dry that the learning experience turns into a snooze fest. This session will teach you:

  • Strategies for infusing pizazz into required workplace training
  • How to make required trainings informative and fun, so employees easily recall and set into practice what they’ve learned—so you can minimize legal risks
  • How to evaluate whether your preferred method of delivery for required training, e.g., via Skype, a mobile device, or another platform—is legally permissible under the regulations that mandate a particular type of training

Lunch, Networking & Exhibits
12:35 p.m. – 1:35 p.m.

Smartphone Cinema: Mobile Design Considerations to Satisfy Microlearning Objectives
1:35 p.m. – 2:35 p.m.
To excel at learning and development, it’s essential to recognize that a smartphone or tablet is likely the preferred method of delivery for many workers. With the use of mobile technologies becoming more prevalent, particularly with respect to microlearning, designing learning-based content for smartphones comes with a host of challenges that companies must be ready to address. This session will focus on:

  • Design criteria for adapting training content for mobile learning
  • Examples of cost-effective tools for developing video-based training for mobile devices
  • Design and integration trouble spots that may arise from screen size and other smart phone attributes

The Art of Storytelling: The Psychology of Learning and How to Incorporate Memorable Vignettes into Training Content
3:25 p.m. – 4:25 p.m.
Presented by: Sharon Lucas and Jessica Du Preez, CDT3 Training
Stories connect us through emotion, and emotion to a large extent drives cognition, according to neuroscientists. But, what really makes a story great? The art of storytelling in large part lies in being able to effectively and succinctly tap into the subject’s emotions. Workforce L&D 2017 closes with a look at:

  • The psychology of learning and the scientific evidence supporting the theory that our brains crave stories
  • How stories can be used to help you achieve training goals
  • How to tell a story when you are not a story-teller
  • Weak training storylines that fall flat in creating an engaging learning experience
  • Examples of tales that do an exceptional job of tapping into emotion and, in turn, breed A-list training content
