What does the future hold for Changeboard after 10 years?

Posted on by from Changeboard

In October 2004 my friend and business partner, Porteur Keene, and I decided to set up a job board. The domain ‘HRboard.com’ wasn’t available, thankfully, so we settled on ‘Changeboard.com’.

The transition of our experience and networks into an online world from our roots in professional services and recruitment has been a revelation. The rapid evolution of the digital world, and the revolutionary impact that it has had on all of our lives, has provided constant stimulation. It has also been the catalyst for innovation and change within the Changeboard business. 

We backed our hunch before the turn of the millennium to evolve the jobs platform into an integrated content platform too. ‘Career’ in all its shades and manifestations is our core subject. The natural fit with jobs was a launchpad from which to diversify from ‘job seeker’ decision support, to the ‘career development’ related subjects of leadership, culture, wellbeing and talent. Our aim is to provide insights and meaning to HR professionals around the globe for the benefit of their own careers, and for those that they manage and support within their organisations.

"Future talent is the galvanising theme that Changeboard is championing across its events and content"

As we look forward it is apposite that supporting ‘future talent’ is the core purpose of Changeboard. It aligns the work of everybody involved in our business with being part of the solution to societal challenges – such as youth employment, managing aging workforces, globalisation and the synchronisation of people with technology  and goes far beyond commercial success. Future talent is the galvanizing theme that Changeboard is championing across its events and content. I’m delighted that this 10th anniversary issue of our magazine coincides with a review of the Future Talent Conference that we hosted for over 500 HR directors at the Royal Opera House in July. Our objective is to share learning across our global HR community to support senior HR professionals manage this central strategic agenda. 

As we become more global in our products and reach we have also evolved the Changeboard brand to reflect a more inclusive international feel. We’re delighted to be working so much in the Middle East, and aim to launch into Asia in 2015.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our users and readers for their widespread support during the last 10 years. We’re more excited than ever about the next decade.
