BetterWork Media Group celebrates one year of business

BetterWork Media Group, the parent company of Talent Management and Chief Learning Officer, celebrates its one-year anniversary and a successful and busy first year.

BetterWork Media Group, the owner of Talent Management and Chief Learning Officer, is celebrating its one-year business anniversary following the internal purchase of Human Capital Media and rebrand launch in January 2021 by founders Ana Dirksen, Kevin Fields, Ashley St. John and Lauren Wilbur. BMG is dedicated to connecting, supporting and empowering workforce communities of C-suite and senior-level practitioners, executives, scholars, consultants and solutions providers in talent management and corporate learning.

In year one, BMG has delivered on a number of promises outlined by leadership, including the return of Chief Learning Officer’s Breakfast Club event series following its 2020 hiatus, improved internal company culture and morale, and, most notably, the relaunch of Talent Management.

Originally retired in 2016, Talent Management is dedicated to providing in-depth information and programming for senior-level talent and HR professionals who champion organizational culture and drive the design, development and execution of talent management programs. Talent Management has returned as the sister brand to Chief Learning Officer, a platform and community for C-suite and senior-level learning and development professionals to connect and advance in the profession and their personal careers. In addition to its Breakfast Club series, Chief Learning Officer is the host of popular industry event CLO Symposium, as well as the Learning in Practice and LearningElite awards programs.

“My co-founders and I are overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from the people-management industry as we’ve worked to chart our business,” St. John says. “The community has proven once again this past year that despite changes and unforeseen challenges, especially in a time of great uncertainty, agility and perseverance are at the cornerstone of what we do. We cannot thank them enough.”

BMG continues to serve the learning and talent communities via its award-winning content, research, events, webinars and digital media and is powered by a team of 100 percent remote employees with its headquarters based in Chicago.
