Leading Industry Expert to Provide Insight Into How Organizations Can Protect Training and Development Budgets in Tough Economic Climates

Upcoming Plateau Systems' Webinar, Featuring Forrester Research Analyst Claire Schooley, Will Focus on How Organizations Can Maximize Their Investments in Training and Development to Weather the Current Economic Storm

ARLINGTON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/17/09 -- Plateau Systems, a leading provider of talent management software, services and solutions, today announced that registration is now open for its March 11, 2009 Webinar titled, "Top 5 Ways to Protect your Training and Development Budget in 2009," featuring Claire Schooley, a senior analyst covering learning strategy and technology at Forrester Research.

In order to survive in today's tough economic environment, organizations are being forced to cut valuable resources, skills and employees without having full visibility into the long-term impact these cuts will have on their business. In many cases, organizations are eliminating the very programs that can help them successfully navigate through the current downturn. Many will be tempted to cut leadership development programs, viewing them as "nice-to-haves," rather than as critical business "must-haves." Shortsighted approaches, however, will put organizations at a significant disadvantage when the economy does recover.

During this interactive Webinar, Schooley will discuss how organizations can leverage their training and development investments today to identify critical skills, positions, employees and initiatives within the organization. By aligning employee skills with the critical needs of the business, organizations can maximize employee productivity and performance and focus on achieving their immediate business goals.

Webinar attendees will learn how to:

--  Identify mission-critical training and development initiatives;
--  Translate training and development programs into revenue generating
    opportunities; and
--  Improve operations and maximize budgets.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
