    Now more than ever, talent development strategies and investment in employees are critical for organizations to maintain a competitive advantage. However, gaps and challenges in training and development persist-exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    On Wednesday, May 26, SHRM and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation will release new research to provide insights to employers and others on the front lines of training the labor force during an event titled: The Training and Development Landscape: Exploring Employer Investment, Challenges, and Innovation in Talent Development.

    The study examines employee benefits organizations are offering, talent investment, and workplace challenges that hinder innovative practices. Additionally, the report highlights the appetite employers have for further talent investment and employer collaborations, as well as how employers view the role of government in facilitating these investments and relationships.

    SHRM and the Chamber Foundation found employers recognize the importance of strong talent investment and are open to further innovation, but many face barriers to expanding their offerings. There is a clear opportunity to pursue new public-private approaches to talent investment that promotes investment in employees, innovation, and employer collaboration.
