Why MTMImpact Symposium 2023?

Over the past three years, HR and L&D Leaders have witnessed a dramatic shift in how employees work, and recognize that the world of work as we knew it will not return.  Now more than ever, the demands of hybrid and remote work require HR and L&D to be more intentional about the employee experience across talent processes, answering critical questions such as: Is hybrid and remote work and learning effective for each employee? How are competencies changing with a shift in how employees work? Where are the priority skill and competency gaps that we need to take actions to close? HR and L&D can answer these questions through robust learning and talent management practices that continually take the pulse of the workforce and glean insights from it for actions.

MTMImpact Community organizations are doing just that by leveraging Explorance’s best practice methodology and automating measurement with MTM and Blue (a holistic people insights platform), to ensure that their organizations not only capture feedback but also turn it into the best possible people-insight-driven decisions and actions. At the annual symposium in 2023, MTMImpact Community organizations will connect together to share experiences to amplify business impact with the theme of Insight to Action: Accelerating Personal Growth and Organizational Agility.

Join the Symposium to connect with your like-minded HR and L&D colleagues and problem solve, while influencing Explorance’s product direction and advancing your professional development.
