Talent Matters: Hiring for Learnability

Register at MMAC

We know talent drives regional success. Have you thought about what drives talent? Learnability is cited as a key indicator of an individual’s ability and willingness to contribute to an organization for the long-term. In this Talent Matters session, we’ll explore the idea of learnability and discuss practical methods for hiring for, developing, and leveraging learnability in our own organizations. Our expert speaker on the topic of ‘Hiring for Learnability’ will be Dr. Theresa Carik, VP, Principal Consultant with Manpower Group’s Right Management.
