Talent programs work when they help the business grow and succeed
Talent leaders need to create programs with measurable insights, and that's easier when they ensure they're aligned with the business, said talent executives from Comcast, Choice Hotels, Gilead Sciences and Plains All American at ATD 2019. "It's less about my ability to create Net Promoter Score; it's more about my ability to create a moment in which I can keep someone, help them make a better decision," said Brian Miller, vice president, talent, development & inclusion, at Gilead Sciences.
