building effective L&D teams for rapid development

On September 12, SweetRush and clients Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Hilton, and Kaiser Permanente will share stories and insights about building effective teams for rapid development of learning solutions.

San Francisco, Calif., Sep. 2, 2019 — Leading custom learning and talent solutions provider SweetRush has announced it will host an upcoming webinar, Three Case Studies: Building Effective L&D Teams for Rapid Development, on September 12. It is being sponsored by eLearning Industry, and led by Rodrigo Salazar, SweetRush’s Manager of Talent Solutions.

The Learning and Development field’s ever growing demand for rapid development of training programs—quickly designed, developed, and deployed—creates pressure on L&D managers to build effective and efficient teams. Internal resources are often stretched thin, and managers may face limitations on their ability to scale with full-time hires. At the same time, businesses are increasingly looking to learning and development to achieve organizational goals.

Through the lens of real-world case studies, SweetRush and its client-partners will reveal how learning organizations can use staff augmentation to add highly qualified learning professionals to their teams. This talent acquisition strategy helps ease the burden on internal teams,advance the development of initiatives, and meet business objectives. Representatives from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Hilton, and Kaiser Permanente will share their experiences before and after implementing a staff augmentation strategy.

Webinar attendees can expect to learn how staff augmentation can help them reach goals, how to discern whether staff augmentation or project outsourcing is the right move for them, how agile recruiting can speed up the deployment of programs, and how to onboard talent from both clients’ and recruiters’ perspectives.

“In our era of swift change, organizations are investing more in learning and development initiatives than ever before. Consequently, learning organizations are being tasked with producing a high volume of quality training programs in a very timely manner,” says Salazar. “Our three client-partners will speak to how staff augmentation was the best, most practical, and most cost-effective solution for acquiring expert resources on demand, as well as to the necessity of having a strong, highly communicative, and highly collaborative vendor-partner on their side.”

This 60-minute webinar will take place on Thursday, September 12, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern. Register on the eLearning Industry website to save your place.
