You’ll leave this session with a better understanding of how to: • Empower your employees to share the opportunity and impact of print. • Awaken potential career seekers to rewarding new futures in our industry. • Create a more diverse and equitable workforce. • Support supervisors to effectively manage the training process. • Utilize industry accreditations to fill your most-needed disciplines. • Expose entry-level learners to the fundamentals of print to launch a new career. • All attendees will leave with a free Print Industry Recruitment Kit.

  • Print customers – and their customers – are increasingly aware of the environmental impacts of the products they buy and use, and they understandably want to do the right things. But when it comes to print on paper, the right things are often buried under an avalanche of misinformation driven by ill-informed media, competitive interests and anti-paper environmental advocates. To make sure your customers and other stakeholders understand the inherent environmental benefits of print on paper and how it contributes to a more sustainable, circular economy, you need to be armed with the facts.

  • Organizations struggle to create a culture that allows everyone to innovate, grow and transform consistently. Research conducted in over 100 large, medium and small-sized organizations shows that creating a culture for innovation and learning requires leaders to acquire five specific skill sets that can promote reflection, psychological safety, transparency, agile decision making and diverse thinking. In this conversation, we will see how to build these skills that can be foundational to your success as change agents of the future.

    Our research drawing from over 100 large, medium, and small organizations spanning multiple industries suggests that creating a culture of learning requires building and sustaining a management system that allows for transparency, accountability as well as agility.

    The workshop will involve assessing the participant’s organizations on these capabilities and offer research-based insights on how to develop strategy, process and behavioral skills that can enable a culture of learning.
