LDP Connect provides research, events and support to the global community of professionals who manage, support or recruit for development programs for early career hires. Since 2012, LDP Connect has hosted the annual LDP Summit® – a best practices conference featuring case studies of innovations, group brainstorming sessions, bench-marking data on program practices, and networking & idea sharing.
With the input of the community, LDP Connect launched the LDP Survey – a biennial assessment of how organizations manage and evaluate their development programs for early career hires. The LDP Survey captures data on retention, compensation, off-boarding, recruitment, evaluation, mentoring and many other practices related to running development programs. The inaugural survey in 2015 gathered data on 101 programs from 50 organizations.
In 2017, LDP Connect announced the launch of the LDP Award. Development programs are incubators for future leaders; but they also nurture innovative ideas in leadership development. The LDP Award seeks to recognize practitioners in the space who have brought innovation to development programs for early career hires. We are now accepting nominations.
LDP Connect exists because of the many contributions its stakeholders have made over the years. We welcome the feedback of the development program community, and strive to adapt our offerings to meet your most pressing needs.
To stay abreast of news and activities within the community, we invite you to sign up for the LDP Report.
