Talent Development in Action

A Historic Year for Development, Despite COVID-19

In 2020, FTI Consulting’s Talent Development team planned on training more than 1,400 employees globally through multiday, in-person talent development programs. However, 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.

Our Story

With COVID-19 declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization in March of 2020, our Talent Development team swiftly pivoted to an all-virtual platform, which included redesigning our in-person milestone programs, launching FTI University via a new online platform and supporting the virtualization of our onboarding process, key internal conferences and segment-specific trainings to position our people to meet critical client needs arising from the pandemic.

Our Impact

5,000 employees
