Vyakta: Empowering Your Talent

Employees represent an organization. A poor representation trickles down through organizations and puts cost on large companies in a significant amount per employee. On the other hand, organizations across the country invest annually a substantial amount of money on the leadership training for emerging leaders. But, unfortunately they fail to act accordingly in the development and bringing advancement to the organization. Research conducted by Hogan and colleagues even suggests that, ‘half of all leaders are derailed, and costing their companies upward of $1 million each’.There is an immense need of training programs which empower employees, impart new skills and improve existing skills for increasing the business productivity.
Focusing on development than just deliverables, Vyakta, a consulting firm has emerged with their premium programs in communication, behavior and leadership, simultaneously helping companies win in business by developing talent and aligning it with their organizational strategy.
