The past few years were filled with shifting workplace dynamics and unprecedented world events, heightening the need for a more transformational approach to work. As organizations are rethinking how to best support talent, top priorities include hybrid work, talent attraction, onboarding and integration, retention, performance, feedback, well-being, inclusion and more. Research has long told us that employee engagement leads to significant business outcomes. It has also told us that people development is a core driver of engagement.
