[Live Q&A] - How to Scale Manager Training for Your Contingent Workforce Program

Scale Manager Training feat Cris Robinson LinkedIn

Join us on Oct. 27 at 10a PT/1p ET for a casual discussion with Cris Robinson, Sr. Manager, Contingent Workforce Program at LinkedIn. 

Contingent workforce program teams often serve hundreds of managers across a variety of timezones. And as the business continues to grow, 1-1 training meetings on how to use the contingent workforce program become unscalable. 

To scale and meet the needs of managers across the world, Cris and her team at Linkedin created a training and enablement program for hiring managers. In this discussion with Erika Novak, Head of Client Services at Utmost, Cris will share with Erika the in’s and out’s of creating this learning program including the below questions: 

  • Why should you build training materials for managers using your program?
  • How can you get approval and buy-in from other teams?
  • How do you create content for training?
  • What type of materials and topics should you cover?
  • How should you launch your training content?
