Training & Development

Conscientious companies have always committed considerable resources to employee training and development. One of the keys to sustainable success is the ability to broaden employees’ knowledge and expand their skill sets. But training and development has taken on an even greater sense of urgency considering how rapidly the workplace is changing and evolving. The training and development books we’ve summarized will help you get up to speed in educating your workforce and sharpening your organization’s competitive edge.

getAbstract’s training and developing summaries will demonstrate how to assess your company’s particular training needs and assemble a program that’s interesting and relevant. You’ll learn about using assessment tools to gauge the effectiveness of your program and techniques for reinforcing information employees learn long after the training sessions have ended. getAbstract will also show you foolproof methods for getting your employees excited about learning opportunities and the possibility of furthering their careers.

Leading the Way

Human resources literature overwhelmingly suggests that opportunities for advancement represent one of the keys to employee satisfaction. Organizations that develop and promote leaders from within inevitably benefit from a more engaged and motivated workforce. getAbstract’s training and development summaries are loaded with advice on how to identify your rising stars and coax the very best from them. For organizations that are looking to establish leadership training development, we’ll provide the tools to build a rock-solid foundation.
