Next week, the Human Capital Management Federal (HCMF) Training Event will kick off a three-day series of panels and discussions on the future of federal government training. Our own Paul Terry will be speaking on the “Training And Development Best Practices” panel to discuss topics including social learning and effectively leveraging technology in the face of federal budget cuts.
HCMF is a great forum for agency leaders and human resource professionals to share best practices in HR strategies, talent management, and even innovative recruitment. I’m particularly excited that this year’s event will cover technology-focused strategies to improve training, such as best practices in cloud computing and social networking.
