Episode #2 | Creating an Accessible Workforce Mindset
26% of people in the U.S. and 19% of college students self-identify as having a disability. As organizations implement employee development programs, it’s critical to integrate accessible technologies, strategies, and resources to enable that sometimes overlooked portion of the workforce. In this episode, Katherine Hill and Katie Radloff discuss accessibility and a variety of ways to help those populations.
Improving Organizational Performance Through Employee Development
Improving an organization’s performance is more than a technology. Even the best strategies, technologies, and solutions will have little impact if no one adopts them or uses them effectively. The key to success is your people and how new approaches to employee development can be the strategic fuel to build agility and competitiveness. This series is designed to explore how business leaders can structure their organizations to use employee development as a strategic tool to ensure the success of even the most complicated challenges.
In our first episode, our esteemed friend Kaihan Krippendorff, best selling author and founder of Outthinker, joins Matt to discuss his work helping companies through disruption, how communication and other important elements play a role, and updating the mental model of the workplace.
