In many Maine businesses today, the training and development function of the HR department is overlooked or neglected. Hear from industry experts about the ways successful businesses are inventing new approaches to employee training and development. From internships to job shadowing to play rooms to onsite continuing education, there are so many ways to revitalize this critical HR function to ensure a happy and productive workforce. Join us for a discussion on:

  • The status of training and development programs in our post-recession business environment–and why it matters to Maine companies
  • USM certificate programs, including risk management and insurance and ethics and regulatory compliance
  • Continuing education opportunities at USM, including professional development programs and executive education
  • A mini Design Thinking workshop – an experiential exercise on the training and development process
