Talent Advisory Board

UNCW Talent Advisory Boards

Starting January 2017, UNCW's Learning and Talent Development Team will be launching three pilot Talent Advisory Boards (TABs) on campus. Each TAB comprises 2-4 board members and 10-14 committee members of 2-4 committees. Joining a TAB is an 18-month commitment, during which board and committee members will develop departmental initiatives to engage, develop, and recognize their peers. The departments/areas participating in the 2017-2018 pilot Talent Advisory Boards are:

  • UNCW Administrative Professionals
  • Budget & Financial Analytics
  • Information Technology Services

These three pilot Talent Advisory Boards will serve as the models for future expansion of the TAB program across campus. If you think your department may be interested in establishing a Talent Advisory Board, please look out for an interest survey in 2018.

What is a Talent Advisory Board?

A Talent Advisory Board takes the traditional concept of a professional development committee to a new, more robust and engaging level. Each TAB is made up of departmental employees with a passion for learning, growth, and talent development. After the application process, each TAB member is placed in one of four committees, each with a specialized focus area. During their 18-month tenure, TAB members are charged with developing and implementing initiatives that increase employee engagement, offer relevant and exciting development opportunities, and recognize and retain staff in their respective areas. 

Who should join a Talent Advisory Board?

If you are a full-time employee interested in growing your leadership skills, or have a desire to take on a supervisory role in the future, becoming a Talent Advisory Board member is a perfect opportunity for you. If you enjoy building and growing relationships with others on campus and serving your community, becoming a Talent Advisory Committee member is a perfect fit.
