The experience to effectively develop people

With more than 80 years of experience in helping organizations develop their people, we understand and can help with some of the most common training challenges:

  • Employees understand the organizational values and feel a culture “fit.” They learn how to be effective in their specific role on the team and how being a good team member can sometimes require being a good “follower.”
  • Behavioral learning requires self-awareness on the path to building a personal brand. Learners come to understand how accepting and leveraging critical personal feedback helps build resilience for succeeding in demanding environments.
  • Learners develop the technical skills they need to excel, including developing the required financial and decision-making skills.
  • Employees learn to set realistic expectations around progression, promotion, and salary as they better understand the organizational impact of their performance—both good and bad.
  • Learners are supported by the Kaplan team, their mentors, and leadership all along the way to help turn their opportunities into long-term career success.

Kaplan tailors employee development to address both the existing talent and the gap identified through the diagnostic process. Expert trainers, engaging delivery methods, relevant content, and customized resources transform the learning experience—and the learners themselves.

We develop talent at every level

Kaplan accelerates and directs the development of professional and leadership skills at every level in your talent pipeline.
