Summer is already coming to an end. Can you believe it? We hope you’ve had fun, stayed safe and learned a few new skills during the last couple months. With the end of August comes our monthly top content list. This month, topics include talent management strategy, project management and business ethics.
Like last month, our members enjoyed both video and written content within the BlueBottleBiz platform. For the second month in a row, video learning has risen to the top. We’re proud of our growing business content library, which includes 15,000 videos, as part of our 50,000 assets. Our content is the cornerstone of collaborative learning. Content provides the perfect jumping-off point for colleagues to discuss new ideas based on what’s read or viewed, or for professionals to network with experts. Collaboration spurs idea generation. And, what company can’t benefit from that?
Without further ado, here are the top three titles that were consumed in BlueBottleBiz throughout the month of August.

Reinventing Talent Management, a “hot-off-the-press” title by Edward E. Lawler, addresses modern workplaces. New work styles and diversity are influenced by rapid technological changes and how we “do” work in the modern world. As such, the role of recruiting great talent has become a critical concern for businesses, both small and large. Lawler says that talent management needs to become more agile and closely linked with the strategic goals of every business. He says it should be less driven by simply filling open roles.
