Testimonial: Cradle to Career - an Original Approach to Diverse Talent Development & Retention
Workplace Content Area

This session is a testimonial on how four organizations, with distinct business models, collaborated in developing a strategic, unique, impactful, and insurance-industry first alliance in the Atlanta marketplace. Delivered in either a single presenter or panel format, session participants are taken on a journey via which they gain awareness of how (a) a Vision was translated into a strategic business imperative, (b) marketplace intelligence was leveraged to influence leaders to take ownership for a human capital strategy, (c) leaders become invested and drive results, and (d) the synergies of four different business and not-for-profit entities feed collaboration and leverage differences.
 
Learning Objectives:
1. How to take a Vision and translate it into a strategic imperative.
2. Leverage marketplace intelligence to influence leadership buy-in and their zeal to drive execution and results.
3. Learn the dynamics of getting four distinct organizations to collaborate without losing their respective identities.
