ATD BEST Cohort Program Information Session

(Virtual Event-FREE to interested participants)


Join us for this informative one hour meeting where facilitator Jerry Kaminski will provide an overview of what you will learn when you attend his upcoming workshops on how to submit an ATD BEST application! During this information session you'll have the opportunity to ask Jerry questions about the program, and get a preview of what the cohort experience entails.

The BEST Award is an annual award that was established in 2003 and recognizes organizations that demonstrate enterprise-wide success or achievement as a result of talent development.

  • Identify the components of the BEST application and what data you will need.
  • Determine if you want to submit your application or use it to benchmark your own function.
  • Identify a project plan and timeline required to submit your application.
  • Identify how to collect your data for your submission
  • Learn how to use the ATD State of the Industry Report to align your application.
  • Identify how to collect your data for your submission
  • Discuss the importance of the CEO recommendation/quote.
