Earlier this week, I attended the University of Innovative Distribution (UID) in Indianapolis, IN, as program chairman. It has been a true pleasure and source of pride to serve this year as the UID chair. This highly informative four-day conference is a concentrated educational program focused on the unique needs of the wholesale distribution industry.
Last week, I had an interview with a reporter who was writing an article on innovative tools and resources the chemical industry is leveraging to ensure their employees are up-to-speed with the most current best practices and regulatory requirements. She told me that the article would explore a company that sells an app for safety training, another organization that recently released a virtual reality safety training course, and NACD’s online educational platform NACD U. It’s clear that organizations are looking to develop new resources that utilize technology to train their employees in a way that is digestible for these employees and ultimately saves the company time and money—that’s exactly why we launched NACD U last year.
