The Keys to Crafting an SMS-Based Campaign to Reinforce Training

The prerequisite to effective training retention is gaining the attention of the student once they have left the training environment. This is a non-trivial challenge! The use of text messaging is an effective strategy to not only gain student attention but provide a means to reinforce training content and follow-up on key training objectives. In this session, we’ll discuss the various attributes in how to write a text message to yield the greatest user engagement after a training class. These attributes include message frequency, content personality, automation, personalization, and setting appropriate user expectations. We'll also discuss the dynamics of relying on employee mobile devices for a training-related use.

Making Your Work Count: The ROI of Learning & Development

Learning and Development costs money. So most anyone spending money on something expects a Return on Investment, but in the Workplace Learning arena, that is often difficult and time consuming.

Utah ATD will begin holding our monthly events in a new, centrally located venue beginning January 19, 2017! Join us at the Residence Inn Murray (171 E 5300 S) to experience the first event at this updated and central location.
