The Inside Gig: Creating an Internal Talent Marketplace

HR Reimagined: SHRM Northern California Annual Conference 2020

What if the talent you're seeking to hire is already on your company's payroll but going untapped? Employees often have capabilities and aspirations that go far beyond their current job descriptions. In this session, you will learn how to optimize and energize your workforce by deploying the skills of the employees you already have across organizational boundaries.

In a rapidly changing economy that demands the constant reskilling of workers, the future belongs to companies that can access and deploy talent quickly and efficiently. Today’s organizations need to be able to quickly pivot and move talent to the greatest area of need. Unlock the hidden skills within your organization to keep your employees happy and engaged, improve your organization’s agility, and lower your costs.


  • Uncover the hidden skills within your workforce.
  • Create a new talent operating model (TOM) to uncover and cost-effectively match the right talent to real-time business challenges.
  • Apply the six core principles that underlie this new TOM.
  • Bust the "functional silos" in your company to create agile, collaborative teams.
  • Improve employee retention by offering employees the opportunity to expand their careers within your organization rather than leaving in search of new challenges.
