On a recent episode of Pluralsight’s Perspectives in Leadership podcast, Travis Wickesberg, a Senior Solutions and Services Director, discussed what it means to attract, hire, and retain top talent in the industry. He’s a big believer in investing in your people through psychological safety, product-driven marketing data, and transparency. 

Travis has supported some of the world’s most iconic brands with their learning strategies and programs, including Apple and Dell. His deep expertise in workforce transformation makes him the ideal person to talk to about helping organizations shift from being consumers of talent to being creators of talent. 

On the podcast, Travis shares one of his favorite pieces of advice: “Reward the behavior you want to see. Within our data with Skill IQ, we have the ability to identify top talent. They should be rewarded and turned into influencers of your program. Include them in town halls and road shows, put them into newsletters, and let everybody know that it’s cool to participate.”
