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.

As an organization development (OD) professional, you are aware of the benefits that come with engaging and advancing employees. A workplace in which they are valued and able to grow can decrease turnover rates and increase organizations’ profitability. Developing extraordinary OD programs is crucial to creating this type of workforce.

ATD’s OrgDev 2020 will provide you with the strategies and guidelines needed to develop exceptional OD programs and will help you create, cultivate, and curate your organization’s top talent with award-winning OD insights and practitioners. During this day-and-a-half conference, you will work hands-on with the speaker and other like-minded professionals so you can return to your organization with a plan to implement.

The first day of OrgDev 2020 will be a series of four mini workshops where we’ll discuss different programs and impart the skills and knowledge of how to develop and improve upon your onboarding, employee improvement, change management, and future readiness or succession planning programs. The second day will be a culmination of that knowledge in a two-hour bootcamp that will help you develop a step-by-step plan about how to fully enact this program or maximize the benefits of your current program once you leave the conference.

Commit to your growth and the growth of your organization’s workforce by developing more engaging and interactive OD programs at OrgDev 2020.
