Last week Ben and his closest 40,000 friends visited San Francisco for the 2019 IBM Think Conference. The event, despite the rainy weather, was a smashing success. HR Track sessions were standing room only and the customer panels, featuring world leading firms such as UnitedHealth Group and AECOM, were fantastic.
In this episode, Ben is joined by Madeline Laurano of Aptitude Research to talk about the event and some of the key takeaways from the event. Additionally, Madeline digs into some of her new research on quality of hire and how to measure it.
IBM announced some major partnerships last week, but one of them is a new partnership with Skillsoft to bring the best of content and IBM's talent frameworks together. The announcement link below shares insights into how this is working for Sprint and some of the other pertinent details.
