Boca Raton, FL — March 18, 2022

Brandon Hall Group’s new research initiative, Creating a Leadership Development Program for Every Employee, will focus on how people, processes and technology can be leveraged to re-imagine learning to develop more future-ready leaders.

“Our previous research shows that employers are prioritizing leader training for frontline and team leaders and individual contributors over more senior leaders,” Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. “The next step is understanding what this emerging trend in Leadership Development looks like.”

Brandon Hall Group will also create models and frameworks to help organizations improve their approach to realizing the business benefits of developing more people capable of leading to drive business growth.
