Developing your organization means developing your people. Studies have shown that 94% of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their careers.

Having a best-practices approach to organizational development is crucial to retaining your best employees. ATD’s OrgDev 2019 will provide you with the practical skills you need to develop employee programs at all levels and throughout their employment lifecycle. You’ll learn innovative methods to onboard new employees and managers, create an effective high-potentials program, leverage coaching as a developmental tool, and manage the ever-increasing rate of change in today’s workplace.

Unlike lecture-only conferences, OrgDev will give you the opportunity to participate in a series of mini-workshops with experiential activities that provide you the chance to apply what you’re learning to solve your current workplace challenges. The conference will also conclude with a boot camp where you will start creating an employee or leadership development program to bring back to your organization.

Learn how to accelerate your organizational development and help create your organization’s next forward-thinking leaders.
