Talent Development Reporting Principles, known as TDRp, are a series of standards and business practices for the HR and learning functions that aim to align talent development initiatives to organizational objectives and deliver greater value. TDRp provides industry standard measures and reports that enable upfront planning, backend performance measurement, and continuous improvement. Caveo Learning is the first organization to achieve TDRp Certification for Consulting, which is granted by the nonprofit Center for Talent Reporting.
