New research, plus Marvin Smith of Lockheed Martin's talent acquisition team, who provides a close look at talent communities, which are part of the company’s long-term strategy to find and attract scarce talent.

A talent community is an interactive online group whose members are joined by a common interest. It can also be a multiplier for talent acquisition, enabling Lockheed to build relationships with talent before the company needs them or vice versa. If a community member later thinks about a career move, Lockheed hopes it will be top of mind.

Smith shares insights from Lockheed’s first talent community—US military who are transitioning to civilian life—that Lockheed will use to build its next generation of talent communities aimed at strategic talent segments.
