Come celebrate with us as we prepare for Employee Learning Week (Dec 1-5), and recognize successful organizations for their outstanding contributions to talent development.  with the presentation of the ATD Upstate SC Awards of Excellence.

Do you know the best practices in Talent Development? Do you know what it takes to become a Certified ATD Professional in Learning and Performance?

Either way, you don't want to miss The ATD 2014 Challenge Cup!

Join us for a highly interactive Jeopardy style game and discussion on current issues and trends in training and employee development, facilitated by Michael McBride.

In this event, we'll look at some sample questions to test your knowledge. Some should be easy, but some won't! Bring your smart phone or tablet, as this internet based (and anonymous) challenge will compare you to your peers.

Employee Learning Week FAQs

  1. What is Employee Learning Week?
    The Association for Talent Development (fka, The American Society for Training & Development) created Employee Learning Week as an opportunity for organizations and chapters to demonstrate their commitment to employee learning and to emphasize the connection between a highly skilled workforce and organizational results.
  2. What can I do to recognize it?
    Employee Learning Week is the perfect opportunity to focus on your own learning and skills development. Here are a few ideas:
