TDRp Excellence Award

2020 TDRp Execellence Awards

The Talent Development Reporting principles Award program is focused on the forward-thinking, transformational work learning and development teams are doing to show impact and value through measurement, evaluation, and management. We have simplified the application process by paring down the questions in every category. To enter, simply submit existing collateral, artifacts, and documents that provide evidence for what you are already doing. This year, we’ve also added an L&D Measurement During COVID-19 category.
