The Workforce Development Community at ASTD 2014

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

As the Workforce Development community manager for ASTD, I wanted to share with you how excited I am to show ASTD 2014 International Conference & EXPO attendees just what makes this community unique!

Workforce Development is focused on how to help managers—not just trainers and HR professionals—develop their employees and create more productive workforces. This means not only offering content, how-to information,  and other resources focused on managers, but also working with trainers and HR staff to help improve the collaboration with managers, so the organization gets the most out of its training investment.

How do we do this? We offer content and how-to advice from industry leaders through dozens of monthly webcasts and blog posts. We provide you with exclusive tools and resources like online 360 degree assessment tests, 75+ how-to videos, project management tools, new manager resource libraries, the Workforce Development community library, and more.

Visit our page today to see all of the offerings the community provides, and sign up for our free e-newsletter to get the latest information on new blog posts, webcast offerings, and more.

We also have a session track this year at ASTD 2014. Workforce Development sessions include:

Sunday, May 4


Monday, May 5

Tuesday, May 6

Wednesday, May 7
