What is TalentNext?

November 7-8, 2017
West Palm Beach Hilton | West Palm Beach, FL

Employees are searching for companies that focus on professional development and strive for high engagement in their workplace. Yet studies show that only 30 percent of employees are engaged, leading to lower productivity, poor performance, and wasted resources.

ATD’s TalentNext: Building an Engaged Workforce will provide you with innovative methods to increase engagement levels, spark innovation, and attract high performers.

Unlike lecture-only conferences, at TalentNext you’ll participate in a series of mini-workshops where you will experiment with proven, hands-on exercises that you can implement on the job for immediate results. You’ll leave with practical takeaways to immediately improve results and increase satisfaction. 

We’ve even incorporated morning mindfulness sessions at the beginning of each day to help you learn how to be in the present, the benefits of which include decreased stress levels, and increased happiness, creativity, focus, and engagement.

Be the company that employees search for, stay with, and tell their peers about, not one they run from.

Learning Objectives:

  • Update outdated onboarding programs.
  • Develop an environment of innovation, collaboration, and adaptivity.
  • Improve your emotional intelligence skills.
  • Learn how to use mindfulness at work.
  • Understand the future of organization development practices.
