All organizations strive to develop the competencies of their employees to prepare future leaders, execute business strategies and initiatives, and retain top-performing talent. Creating an effective talent development platform is integral to ensuring your company is prepared to fill important leadership roles from within by providing your employees with appropriate learning paths.

Open-source platforms, like Moodle, provide company-branded learning solutions, best-of-breed content options, analytics and time-saving integrations to create a custom environment that meets specific business needs. In this program, Brian Carlson, the founder and CEO of eThink Education, discusses how the right talent development platform, in conjunction with content partners, can be used to create comprehensive learning pathways by streamlining best-of-breed content into a single robust and customizable learning environment. Certifications, badges and interactive learning tools can be added to your talent development platform to encourage employee engagement. Robust analytics measure the effectiveness of your leadership development programs, track course completions and competencies, and allow you to make informed decisions on how to best identify top-performing employees for leadership positions.

Learn how talent development platforms can help ensure employees stay connected, productive and continuously learning.
