    How HR and Marketing are      Re-inventing Talent Management

    With Guest Speaker Anna Tavis,

    NYU Professor and Senior Editor at

    HRPS People+Strategy Journal

    Join us for a thought-provoking and innovative meeting as we welcome Anna A. Tavis, Ph.D, an expert on changes in the workplace.  An accomplished scholar, author, and speaker, Dr. Tavis has fascinating insights into the future of work.  In her most recent article published on LinkedIn, she writes, “Work is not just a paycheck; it’s part of who we intrinsically are.”  She notes that Marketing first figured out that “People don’t buy products, they buy better versions of themselves,” quoting User Onboard guru Samuel Hulick. Applying this concept to the workplace, she writes, “People do not join companies, they seek to become better versions of themselves.”  As a result, “the next generation of companies are focusing their employment brands on new employee experience above all else.”

    To be competitive, Talent Development professionals must develop and execute innovative and business-driven talent strategies focused on this “employee experience.” They must lead the way for companies to hire the best, develop the best, and keep them engaged. As Dr. Tavis states, “I am convinced that the future of the HR function will be decided at the critical intersections between data, technology, brand, and marketing”.

    Dr. Tavis will guide us as we explore these challenges and help us gain cutting-edge insights we can apply to any workplace.

    Key concepts that Dr. Tavis will address include: 

    • The closing gap between employees and consumers (the "inner" and "outer" lives of an organization).
    • The importance of Employee Experience and what we can learn from Customer Experience. 
    • How HR and Marketing are converging as a result; collaborating and adapting practices across traditional functional boundaries.
