April 2, 2014



What do you get when you put three HR thought leaders of super innovative companies together in a Google hangout to discuss how to unleash the potential of their employees? You walk away with insightful and practical advice on how to develop the face of your organization – frontline employees.

Frontline employees don’t sit at desks or in front of computers. They’re out there servicing customers, selling products and building our brands. Given their limited access to formal training, delivering learning and development to them can be difficult. But with the right strategy, internal buy in and technology, organizations can offer the training and development these employees deserve.HRIQ Roundtable
