    October 24, 2019 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

    The world is changing, and so are the expectations of government and public sector employees. Finding ways to help employees continually learn and grow is critical to building a change-ready workforce. The County of Orange partnered with Cornerstone OnDemand as part of their strategy for transforming culture and talent development. Faced with a series of impossible challenges, the team’s change management strategies enabled them to implement the County’s first talent management system. This was the first critical move to begin shifting culture and empowering a generation of public servants to be their best so they can give their best. In this webinar, you’ll explore a case study of the change management strategy the County of Orange created to support their implementation of Cornerstone OnDemand and drive culture change. You’ll learn creative, yet practical strategies and tools you can use for your own implementation and other change initiatives.
