Our guest in this episode is Edie Goldberg, President of E.L. Goldberg & Associates in Menlo Park, California. She is a nationally recognized expert in HR and talent management strategy and organizational effectiveness. Prior to starting her own firm 19 years ago, she was a Global Thought Leader in the Human Capital Practice for Towers Perrin. She is the co-author of The Inside Gig: How Sharing Untapped Talent Across Boundaries Unleashes Organizational Capacity (LifeTree Media, April, 2020). Edie earned her Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Albany, SUNY. She is the recipient of HR People + Strategy’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and a Fellow of the Society for Industrial & Organizational Psychology. She currently serves on the board of the SHRM Foundation and is an advisor to start-ups in Internal Talent Mobility.
We connected with Edie as we saw many intersections between our views on career management and the need for organizations to take a more innovative approach. In this conversation, we talk about Edie’s own career path, her new book The Inside Gig, moving mindsets from talent scarcity to talent abundance, how to create a new “Talent Operating Model” and what advice she has for Gen Z talent starting their careers.
