Agile Talent Management – Leveraging Outside Experts

with Jonathan Younger
Founder, Agile Talent Collaborative

April
7:30 am - 10:00 am

We know that organizations depend increasingly on external expert freelancers – or agile talent – to meet their performance and growth goals. In a new global survey, over 90% of organizations rely on agile talent to provide temporary or project expertise they don’t possess, and 80% are increasing their use.

In fact, consultancies like Accenture recently proposed that, in the future, perhaps 40-50% of the workforce will be agile, leading to the formation of truly blended workforces.

Join us for this discussion with Jon Younger, Founder of the Agile Talent Collaborative and Author of Agile Talent. He will help you assess your own organization’s readiness for agile talent, identify your role in the change that lies ahead, and begin to develop a practical plan of action.

Please RSVP by clicking on the link in your email invitation, no later than June 4, 2018. If you have any questions, contact Kevin Osborne or Christy Kim.

Unfairly Labeled: How Your Workplace Can Benefit From Ditching Generational Stereotypes

with Jessica Kriegel
Organization Development & Talent Management Professional

June
7:30 am - 10:00 am

As experienced baby boomer employees are retiring, the rise of millennials in the workplace is increasing, with over 80 million people born between 1982 and 2000 in the US alone. As these demographic shifts become more obvious, entire generations are being labeled, categorized and stereotyped. Unfortunately this has a profound effect on corporate America as leaders decide how to attract, retain and engage employees of all ages.

Citing extensive academic research from her book, Unfairly Labeled: How Your Workplace Can Benefit From Ditching Generational Stereotypes (Wiley), Kriegel points out that not only does such labeling create unfair biases and lead to inappropriate reactions, but in fact, there is no clear evidence to support the messages that the stereotypes convey.

In this session Jessica will discuss how individuals can combat the unfair labels that define their generation. She will also review the pitfalls of generational stereotyping and how that can affect business outcomes.

Please RSVP by clicking on the link in your email invitation, no later than June 4, 2018. If you have any questions, contact Kevin Osborne or Christy Kim.
