Despite a sudden shift to a virtual work environment, FTI Consulting recognized the opportunity to expand and virtualize talent development programs that were previously reliant on face-to-face interactions, including implementing live webinar training sessions, prioritizing unconscious bias and inclusion training, and expanding collegiate-level course offerings.
A Historic Year for Development, Despite COVID-19
With the COVID-19 pandemic evolving rapidly, we quickly realized that in addition to the changes we had to make to serve our clients remotely, we also needed to redesign our in-person talent development programs to adapt to a virtual format.
Accelerating Leadership Development
FTI Consulting is committed to accelerating the growth of our current and future leaders at every level throughout their careers. Our leadership programs help our leaders live our values more fully and build and demonstrate FTI Consulting’s competencies with their team members so they can succeed.
To maintain a diverse and inclusive culture, one of FTI Consulting’s primary initiatives is to emphasize the importance of raising awareness regarding how our actions impact others. We invested time and attention in our employees who serve in roles with management responsibilities with the tools and resources necessary for leading and managing inclusive teams.
Globalizing FTI University
Since 2005, FTI Consulting has offered a semiannual, in-person learning program, FTI University, that provides professional development opportunities to employees in North and Latin America. In 2020, in the wake of the COVID-19-driven remote work environment, the firm introduced FTI University as a global service.
