Employee Development Consulting

Employee Development Practice

Employee development is the heart and soul of every successful organizational strategy. Yet, because of time and resource pressures, many companies create training programs based on assumptions, not on what they actually know. As a result, training initiatives can often miss the mark.

IEC specializes in helping companies focus first on the big picture – the business objectives, the desired outcomes, the audience’s needs and interests, as well as the practical challenges.

Customized Employee Development Solutions

The employee development solutions we deliver – such as consultative sales training or software training for complex enterprise applications – are customized to your business, your employees, and your learning and development strategy. If you’re looking for out-of-the-box, one-size-fits-all solutions, we’re not the partner for you.

Our team is skilled in a variety of delivery media – e-learning, instructor-led training, self-paced documentation, video on demand, and virtual classroom instruction. We also can identify when other development activities, such as professional coaching and job rotation, may be more effective in meeting the organization’s goals.


While we prefer to tackle programs from start to finish, we’re available to tackle specific projects, too. Our employee development projects fall into these primary categories:

  • Training Needs Analysis: We help define the vision and objectives for a particular training program or an entire curriculum. We’ll review and analyze data and input from all sources, and then make objective recommendations based on industry best practices, your specific needs, and our experience in delivering learning solutions.
  • Curriculum Design: We help design curriculum, which can range from detailed mapping of training courses and activities specific to learning goals, audiences, and job roles to the creation of a customized look and feel consistent with your corporate identity.
  • Content Development: We customize content to your instructional strategy and delivery media. We have in-depth experience with many types of content, from customer service and sales training to developing application- or process-specific content.
  • Training Delivery: We help you successfully test and deploy instructional solutions. Our experts can assist with everything, from e-learning deployment to live delivery of instructor-led and virtual training.
  • Assessment Strategy and Development: We help you evaluate the success of your training programs. Assessment projects can range from measuring learner satisfaction to calculating short- and long-term ROI.
