training and development in a recession

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on January 28, 2009 by ruyoung

in the midst of downsizing, layoffs, and stimulus packages the training industry needs a reminder of just how crucial the right kind of training is necessary to survive the current downturned economy.

the canadian management centre will host a free webcast titled training and development in a recession: what smart organizations do to survive in challenging times. 12:00pm to 1:00pm est.

the free webcast, promising prescriptive wisdom and proactive actions, will focus on:

  • Results of AMA and Ken Blanchard Company research on the effects of downsizing and the impact of training upon organization performance
  • “non-negotiable” skills/competencies that are critical to organization survival
  • Key insights into successfully managing through difficult change
  • Justifications for increased spending on training in lean times

though this is free, registration is required.
