VP of People

Recent job numbers show that unemployment is moving toward all-time lows, which means the talent wars are getting increasingly competitive among businesses fighting to attract and retain top workers. Even flashy perks like ping-pong, free food, and wine o’clocks are not enough to gain a true talent advantage. New research proves the most coveted benefits are those with substance, that aid professional growth and personal well-being. Not only do development perks provide a competitive hiring edge, but employees given the opportunity to learn at work are also more engaged and interested in their jobs.

This session will dive into how accesso's VP of people has incorporated resounding feedback from employees requesting development opportunities and prioritized meaningful benefits across the organization. This session will discuss why businesses should move past the ping-pong perk hype and toward benefits like employee learning and development, which can not only offer a competitive edge but also increase engagement and ultimately, retention. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of how to make the business case for learning and development to stakeholders throughout the organization.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How accesso leveraged employee feedback to create and drive its L&D strategy
  • What specific L&D and people-centric initiatives accesso rolled out to the organization
  • How strong L&D programs impact accesso's ability to remain competitive for talent
  • What impact L&D has made on the business, and how other organizations can make the business case to stakeholders
