Learn how to work with employees to facilitate the professional development and skill acquisition essential to organizational and individual success in the 21st century. 

Talent activation is a new way of thinking about talent management that focuses on deliberately connecting the experiences, processes, and metrics that create a productive and loyal workforce. It involves all company stakeholders to promote a strong experience across the employee lifecycle, transcending traditional HR disciplines and integrating day-to-day work into big picture company strategy.

Last year’s Career Advisory Board talent activation survey (discussed in a session at SHRM National in Chicago) asked HR directors how they were activating talent and creating specific employee experiences at the recruitment, onboarding, learning, and performance stages – and how they were using technology to facilitate coordinated activities. 

Our SHRM audience noted that our brand of talent activation put a lot of onus on the employer. It wanted to know: what role do employees play in activating themselves? Uncovering this answer was the purpose of our 2019 survey, Talent Activation 2.0. In this session, we will cover and discuss the survey results and describe the actions most effective in empowering employees to undertake professional growth and achieve meaning in their everyday work lives.
