TESTIMONIALS

Comments from the 2020 Workforce Development Week survey

I have been with KP for almost 2 years and had no idea much of these options exist. I learned so much about all of the resources that KP provides to support us in our professional growth. This is huge to me . Many organizations do not invest in their employees in this manner.
I liked that the event promoted career development, learning, and growth for KP employees
I enjoyed the variety of the sessions and being able to access the content at my convenience.
I gained insight on skills needed to advance my career and opportunities to develop those skills
All the information! I was not aware of all the opportunities that was available to me.
