The Knowledge Network
In October 2010, lifelong learning professionals from The Corporate University embarked upon a new and exciting journey that has caused them to develop and, in the near future, launch a new approach to lifelong learning and professional development. Organizations in Stark, Wayne and southern Summit counties will soon have the opportunity to enter into a new era of cooperative lifelong learning.
The Corporate University met with human resource professionals, training and development professionals and influential leaders from area organizations. We asked these representatives to share their thoughts and ideas on the current professional development programming and services offered by The Corporate University, as well as what they want us to offer in the future. We asked the organizational representatives to share what we should stop doing, what we should start doing and what we should keep doing. The discussions and findings gleaned from the groups were summarized with comments from lifelong learning professionals at The Corporate University and then returned to the client groups for validation. Continued interaction and more conversations lead to a final presentation of the formula for a new approach to lifelong learning, The Knowledge Network. Once again we solicited validation from clients, and The Knowledge Network was born.
The Knowledge Network is a partnership between The Corporate University and local organizations. By joining The Knowledge Network, you gain access to a comprehensive collection of programs and consulting services. These services are designed to address the individual, department and organization development needs unique to your business. Subscribing organizations and The Corporate University become long-term partners in The Knowledge Network and work together to chart a path to the future workplace and to navigate today's fast-paced, knowledge-based and generationally-diverse workplace. This partnership will ignite new solutions by encouraging critical thinking and open dialogue.
Your organization can take advantage of preferred registration and no program cancellations for each employee enrolled in The Knowedge Network. You will have access to an Individual Learning Plan Advisor to assist your enrolled employee to develop an individualized learning plan. The Knowledge Network will provide individualized transcripts, progress reports and follow-up support in the form of networking, coaching and concept review. In addition, The Knowledge Network will provide pre-program webinars and post-program feedback and tools to assist in the knowledge transfer from the learning experience into the workplace.
Tier One and Tier Two partnerships will include access to organization-wide employee opinion surveys. Tier One partners receive the added benefit of an exclusive CEO event that allows CEOs to interact in an intimate group setting with a prominent political, business or international figure.
Representatives from The Corporate University are available to discuss the needs of your organization and how The Knowledge Network can partner with you to meet the professional development needs of your workforce.
