VIRTUAL: YAAA Individual Development Plan Workshop

Join YAAA and Staffing & Career Development for an overview of the Individual Development Plan (IDP) process.
An IDP starts with an annual conversation between a manager and a staff member that is transformed into an action plan of realistic steps the employee can take to help him or her build a desired skill, better use existing talents, or prepare for a career goal. IDP is complementary to the annual performance management process and encourages employees to invest in their work and themselves, contributing to greater job satisfaction.

What does Forster’s virtual society say about our own? What lessons can we learn from the world of the Machine?
