Plugging The Brain Drain – Training, Development, Delegation, and Succession Planning


Brain drain is considered the loss of talent, intellectual property, loss of corporate knowledge, even culture that is lost from employees exiting from a company. Unplugged brain drain can cripple a company. Much of that brain drain is unnecessary too. A company cannot continue to move forward if talent is leaving. Regardless of how talented new employees are, a company can’t excel if once they reach a level of becoming valuable, employees merely leave. A workplace that can bend to adapt to all employees regardless of life priorities stands a much better chance of retaining its employees and not losing valued employees needlessly. Additionally, a workplace that invests in its employees as a complete person has a much better chance of maximizing all employees’ performance, retaining all employees, promoting from within, and even improving employee relations.

This webinar will cover easy ways that companies can identify and halt brain drain. Also how companies can use their training and development programs as a way to invest in your employees, show commitment to your employees and create loyalty and engagement – without creating complicated, expensive programs that are burdensome to administer and which collapse under their own weight.

Also, learn how to put into place cost effective strategic programs to identify and develop future leaders easily and efficiently. Because your future leaders don’t always appear as such when they’re just starting out.

Lastly learn how to put the brakes on those damaging information hoarders, change blockers, and stuck in the mud development saboteurs that impede information transfer and resultantly, all employee growth and development.
