Corporate T&D Best Practices Activity STEP 1: Research and examine what you can find on companies regarding their training practices. Search widely as you may not necessarily find enough information just from the company’s website. Also, consult popular press and trade publications (i.e., newspaper articles, T&D trade publications). Some possible companies to consider exploring include (an extensive but certainly not exhaustive list): Saturn Ford Pepsi Google Apple General Electric Harley Davidson McDonalds General Mills Southwest Airlines Coca-Cola Toyota Four Seasons Cheesecake Factory Starbucks Wal-Mart Chick-Fil-A General Motors Procter & Gamble Zappos Verizon STEP 2: Identify three best practices that are related to training and development specifically (not simply best practices of the organization like being environmentally friendly). One each from three different companies, not three from the same company. STEP 3: Complete the activity worksheet below, using as much space as necessary. Be as precise and detailed as possible with your responses.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
