613 Introducing the New Age of Employee Engagement

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET
Tuesday, November 8

An engaged workplace culture, where employees are valued, involved, and motivated to upskill and reskill themselves, is an excellent recipe for sustained organizational success. But amid ongoing changes in workplaces and the economy, keeping employees motivated to learn and grow at work can be challenging.

Gallup, a workplace consulting and research company, recently reported that only 1 in 5 employees are engaged at work. Such poor employee engagement rates could limit the success of workplace learning and development programs.

Despite current challenges, digital audio technology is ushering in a new age of workplace learning, team collaboration, and employee engagement. More learning and development professionals are successfully using private, internal podcasts to create, share, and assess the performance of training content and programs, and you can do the same.

Join JP Gooderham, the founder of Storyboard, in an interactive conversation with Julie McGoldrick, AVP of learning and development at Insurity, and Troy Petrick, senior director at Azurity Pharmaceuticals, on how digital audio technology can improve employee engagement and scale your workplace learning and development program.

In this session, you will:

  • Learn how audio technology can bring employees together in a digital workplace
  • Discover how easy it is to adopt and use private podcasts as channels for creating and sharing training content
  • Understand why podcasting is the preferred format for implementing a just-in-time learning process and program in your workplace
  • Hear real-life examples of how bite-sized, internal podcast episodes are transforming workplace cultures and motivating employees to learn at work
