Where We’re Heading and Where We Started

Where We’re Heading

The world of work is transforming right before our eyes—impacted by economic change and relentless competition, redefined by a global and multigenerational workforce and shaped by an ever-changing technological landscape.

These are exciting times. And our collaborative village, the TalentCulture Community, is right in the middle of it all.

TalentCulture is recognized as a living metaphor for the social workplace today.

And this community continues to grow and to gain momentum as a source of meaningful insight, expert advice, professional support and networking opportunities.

Where We Started

It started over coffee, early in 2010. When two friends, Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman, were comparing notes on the many forces reshaping today’s workplace. They wondered aloud about how talent-minded professionals could connect and support one another through chaotic and exciting shifts in business, technology and workforce dynamics.

Suddenly, inspiration struck.

HR professionals and leaders were rapidly adopting social media for recruiting, branding, social learning, talent development and thought leadership. In particular, Twitter was gaining favor for its immediacy and reach. Why not leverage that momentum to create a dynamic community of practice?

Within the month, the TalentCulture blog was launched—sparking all sorts of informal Twitter conversations with each new post. We added TalentCulture’s Twitter chat and podcasts later that year—and the rest is history!
