University of Phoenix Professional Development Provides Webinar on Effective Skill Development Strategies for Employee Training

PHOENIX ~ University of Phoenix Professional Development is hosting a webinar for workplace leaders on how to identify and address skills gaps that may exist within an organization and the evolving job market. The webinar, "Closing Skills Gaps: Crafting and Evaluating Effective Skill Development Strategies for Employee Training," will be led by Michael Kolodziej, Ed.D., MBA, director, Educational Programming and Development in Professional Development at University of Phoenix, on Tuesday, November 7th at 2:00pm ET.

According to the University of Phoenix Career Institute® 2023 Career Optimism Index® study, 70% of Americans say if their company gave them more opportunities to apply new skills, they would be more likely to stay throughout their career. Despite this statistic, 29% of employers say they don't invest in reskilling/upskilling programs due to limited employee interest and lack of time/resources for hands-on training programs.

Kolodziej serves as Director of Educational Program Development for University of Phoenix and is the founder and Lead Nerd at Instructional Designerd, an independent Learning Design and Innovation Consultancy based in San Diego. He believes that employers can tap into workers' desires to be challenged to learn new skills and take on new roles.
