Training and Development

Onward, upward, and always learning

Training and development is an essential component of every thriving workplace — especially in this era of quickly changing technology, market conditions, and work norms. Since 2015, job skill sets have shifted by 25 percent; by 2027, that change is expected to reach 50 percent.1 A commitment to curiosity, on-going education, and, yes, upskilling, is a competitive must. 76 percent of employees say they want to work for companies who help them build their skills.2 Compelling training is a key motivator for employee recruitment, engagement, and retention.
