In March of 2019, Dawn M. Sieh, Ph.D., finance talent development manager at Verizon, participated as a guest speaker on APQC's financial management webinar in which she described the growth and impact of the organization’s training and development programs for finance talent. This case study summarizes the wide variety of tools and resources at Verizon for developing finance talent, including an online career portal and development website as well as on-the-job training, stretch assignments, and networking opportunities. The organization supports its initiatives through robust communications, strong support from leadership, and recognition for employees who invest in their own learning.
