During this session, we’ll explore:
How to invest in new programs and resources for increasing tech fluency and skills that impact entire and targeted employee populations.
How to embed learning within a company culture to drive transformation at both the company and the individual level.
Why successful retention and application of skills requires not only well-built training but social and experiential reinforcement as well.
