We were thrilled to have HRPA ask our founder, David Robertson, to speak at their annual conference.

More and more HR and other workforce management professionals are recognizing the importance of so-called “talent ecosystems.” In a talent ecosystem, workers can move between roles, places, and categories as they desire or according to an employer’s needs. This means that companies need to maintain a holistic view of the talent ecosystem and in what manner workers can best be employed in order to meet the organization’s needs. This is not a static prescription, but an ongoing series of choices that will change according to a company’s needs and the availability of talent.


  • Understand the interconnected components of the Workforce Solutions Ecosystem
  • Examine the fluid nature of the new workforce and how this affects your talent attraction and acquisitions strategies
  • Discover the importance of “the Human Cloud”
