Getting To Know Roundtable: Vince Radisek Employee Spotlight
Read Time: 3 minutes
This week, we sat down with Roundtable’s Vince Radisek to talk about his role, learning & development (L&D), and industry trends he finds interesting.
What does your title mean? What do you do for Roundtable?
Being an Account Executive is largely about building and nurturing relationships. My job is to do just that, but also help our clients identify how they can make the largest impact on their employees’ growth and success.
How did you get into L&D?
I was working in the insurance industry when the opportunity to work with Roundtable was presented to me. I never saw myself working in the L&D industry, but it was a natural fit. I consider myself to be a bit of an autodidact. Learning is essential if you want to grow, and I am a huge advocate for personal growth.
What is a trend in L&D that’s exciting to you?
A trend in L&D that’s exciting to me is the rate at which new technologies are being adopted to make training more effective and engaging. I have seen first hand how excited employees can get when trying a virtual reality (VR) training activity for the first time. When employees are excited about training, it creates a much more memorable experience.
What would you say is the most important part of building a training program?
I believe that clearly identifying your learning objectives is the most important part. Once you know the exact objectives of the training, it becomes much easier to find the appropriate training modality or modalities to deliver the most effective program.
Finish the sentence. Learning is essential to an organization because…
…without learning there is no growth. Organizations as a whole need to continuously learn in order to grow, and the same goes for individuals.
What is something you have done in this role that you are proud of?
I am proud that I have risen quickly through the ranks at an organization that operates in an industry I knew very little about when I started. I have big goals for myself, and there is a long road to get there. I don’t want to hang my hat on any specific accomplishments just yet.
What are some interesting facts about you?
I am very into health and fitness. I keep up to date on the latest research, and love to run self experiments to see what actually works. My coworkers would likely say my food choices are interesting to say the least.
