Members of this council, one of the oldest in The Conference Board Council Program, meet to focus on the most critical business challenges regarding talent. Recent topics we have discussed include:

  • HR transformation – pushing the boundaries
  • The shrinking labor market and workforce planning
  • HR’s role in mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures

This broad-spectrum council consists of members from many sectors and industries who provide guidance by recommending and evaluating program topics of particular and general interest.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
