Attracting and Engaging Talent with Open Badges

Vice President for Strategic Initiatives Ellen Beaulieu and Director of Computing and Digital Programs Jay Collier attended the New England Board of Higher Education conference Talent 4.0: How Employable are New England’s College Graduates and What Can Higher Education Do About It? in October.

As part of a panel called “What Credentials Do Employers Really Care About?”, David Leaser, IBM’s Senior Manager of Strategic Initiatives, spoke about changes in the 21st-century workplace and new approaches to talent attraction and development, including open badges. He shared with us slides from his similar presentation to the Association for Talent Development.
