Human Capital Media, Chief Learning Officer magazine publisher, has announced the final details for the Chief Learning Officer Symposium 17, a conference for senior learning and development professionals, corporate executives, and human capital management leaders worldwide. The event will take place April 24 – 26, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida.

Focused on the theme Learning: The Fuel for Performance, the event offers opportunities for industry professionals to earn recertification credit hours toward PHR, SPHR, and GPHR.

Mike Jordan, Global Head of Talent and Learning at HP Inc., will outline how his company has transformed the way employees develop, connect, and learn. After evaluating what was working, what was broken, and what was missing in its current approach, the Talent and Learning team partnered with stakeholders across the organization to build “Brain Candy,” an employee-centric platform for learning, sourced by employees and business teams and named by focus groups within the organization. With more than 15,000 active users in the first two weeks, the initiative has grown to include over 78% of content curated by employees and more than 66,000 individual learning completions.
