Enterprise On-Site

Good employers know that continued professional education and development is necessary for their employees as they look to maximize workforce performance and engagement and capitalize on employee growth, but it comes at a cost: travel costs to and from a workshop, registrations fees, and time out of the office can make such an investment difficult to justify. The bottom line is that productivity stays up when employee’s stay at work and it is important to find professional development programs that can supplement this requirement.

INFORMS’ on-site, professional development solutions provide organizations with high quality, customizable professional education and development programs for O.R. and analytics professionals at a reasonable cost. Bring one of our workshops to your organization to improve your staff and their O.R. and analytics practices while saving time and money. It doesn’t take a complex algorithm or predictive model to identify that value.
