Employee participation needed for talent sharing program
As a result of Purdue’s migration to online learning, many departments are experiencing increased workloads. Others have an increased availability and a willingness to step up and serve.
To help bridge that gap, Human Resources has created a program to bolster departments in need and provide opportunities for employees with capacity to grow and advance the mission of the organization. The Purdue Together: Talent Sharing Program launched March 30, and more than 20 needs have been identified.
The Talent Acquisition team will manage the program, working with departments to match current critical needs with internal staff who have available talent to meet those needs. Employees should note that this program will be directed by supervisors; staff will not complete the forms. However, employees are encouraged to review the identified needs under Talent Share Openings. If an employee feels they have capacity and can meet one of the available needs, the employee should reach out to their supervisor to submit their name.
“We want to continue supporting the University community through this program,” said Brenda Coulson, director of talent acquisition in Human Resources. “It’s our hope that those with availability will look through the posted needs and consider whether they can fill any of them.”
