    • Learning Delivered Right to your Desk!

    The pace of workplace change is downright ridiculous! Employees must contend with a never-ending stream of new processes, regulations, products and technologies. Companies are struggling to close critical skill gaps that put their future growth at risk. On top of all of that, budgets are tightening as teams are asked to do more with less as the result of ongoing economic uncertainty.

    Traditional learning methods, like structured programs and formal courses, simply can’t keep pace with our changing workplace reality. Instead, L&D must adopt a holistic view of employee development, expand our toolkit and activate the entire workplace ecosystem. Join JD Dillon for an exploration of the practical and proven Modern Learning Ecosystem Framework, a disruption-ready approach to learning and support in today’s workplace.

    ATD Greater Philadelphia Chapter programs are pre-approved by the ATD Certification Institute for continuing education credits. These credits are based on the ATD Capability Model and may be applied towards initial eligibility and recertification for Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) and Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) credentials.
