Career Development Training for Employees

“We have found our 8+ year partnership with LSA extremely beneficial. We recently implemented an outstanding Career Development Training for Employees combined with a Management Development Program.

It was highly customized to support our strategic initiative of hiring, building, and retaining key intellectual property and human talent.

We worked closely with LSA to target people solutions with the greatest impact. I would recommend LSA to any company that’s looking for a trusted partner.”
Janice Passarello | Director of Human Resources | Harmonic Inc.

Overview
In order to build internal bench strength and have skilled employees who can be moved into the right roles at the right time, employees must take ownership for their own career development.  Career Development Training for Employees is built to facilitate workforce readiness, develop employees who are engaged in the business, and improve employee tenure.

The customized programs are designed to provide employees, their managers, and internal career coaches with a clear road map of how to develop a meaningful career.  They also provide proven tools, assessments, and skills required to make it happen.

The payoff for developing careers within the organization is longer tenure, lower recruiting costs, higher levels of contribution as employee potential is realized, and improved employment branding as an employer of choice.  The payoff to employees is less job stress, higher motivation, and the pride and satisfaction one experiences when making full use of one’s strengths and natural talents.

Description
Career Development Training for Employees focuses on the skills and best practice tools for employees to “own” their own career development. The career development workshop covers a four step process for the employee to follow, builds the critical skills for career discussions with both their managers and others within the organization, and provides a career development toolkit  to support employee career discovery and internal career path planning.

Program Objectives
In this proven Career Development Training for Employees, participants learn how to:

  • Understand the definition of career development (its’ not just “up” anymore)
  • Clarify the various roles in Career Development: (managers, employees, and the organization)

  • Are able to utilize their strengths.

Tools & Concepts

We hired LSA Global to design and deliver a customized outdoor experiential new employee orientation program for our recent group of MBA new hires.

The program reinforced WIPRO core values, helped to build relationships with fellow associates, and enhanced the group’s ability to operate successfully in the global world.

I definitely recommend LSA for effective employee onboarding of top talent.

Vishu Venkat, PHR

Having a training outsourcing partner like LSA to support our talent management needs has been a real blessing. In an emerging company where typically you can’t afford the infrastructure necessary to provide a full range of offerings, having an external partner like LSA has been a blessing.

They deeply understand our business and our culture.   They do a great job on a wide range of customized training, consulting, and coaching solutions for us.

For us, they are definitely better than having our own internal Training and Organizational Development function.  They always do what it takes to hit the mark.

Chris Wells
Vice President, HR and IT

LSA brought a very effective training strategy, design, and implementation approach to help us create a common language around our corporate training.

As a fast growing company with a geographically dispersed workforce, LSA’s expertise was invaluable to us in driving consistency, creating a sense of belonging for our employees, and developing a common language for everyone.

We partnered with LSA to help custom design, deliver, and measure an advanced new employee on-boarding process. It was well thought out and bought into by sales leadership.  The combination of targeted sales tools, technology, coaching, performance plans, training, and reinforcement made all the difference.  The solution quantifiably improved new employee and hiring manager satisfaction and increased the speed to sales quota for new hires.

I would highly recommend LSA Global for any sales enablement team looking to increase the engagement and speed to productivity of their sales force. We are excited to implement the program globally as we continue to scale.
