There’s a lot going on in the CXR Community! We’ve outlined a few tips to help you & your team leverage our resources and get the most from your CXR Membership. We always love to hear from our members so if you have any questions about your membership, how to use our site or just want to say hello – drop us a line: info@cxr.works!

Before we get started: Activate your site membership

First stop: the CXR Communities

The Community Forums are a group of message boards focused on key talent topics. Here you’ll find active conversations in Operations, College Recruiting, Internal Mobility, Diversity and more! The forums give you an opportunity to gain insights and quick benchmarks from your fellow members. Once your membership is activated, all you have to do is click into a forum to join. A few key tips:

  • When a forum is labeled [CXR cohort] then you know it’s a members-only forum – your safe place for any & all conversations.
  • There are forums for all of our core focus areas within talent and there’s no restriction on how many you can join. 
  • Be sure to subscribe to receive posts in your inbox. 

Now let's get to know each other a little better...

CXR Meetings are probably our most popular resource – and no wonder! Who wouldn’t want to come together with other awesome talent professionals ready to share, learn from each other, build their network and develop new skills?! We have a LOT of meetings in which you can participate and we hope to see you at many of them! 

CXR Meeting FAQ

  1. How do I attend a meeting? Go to the events page, find a meeting that interests you and register to attend! All of our meetings are available to CXR Community Members. In 2022 we plan a balance of digital & in-person events.
  2. I tried to access a meeting but the site says I don’t have access, what do I do? If you’ve already activated your membership – make sure you’re logged in. If you haven’t activated your membership – scroll up on this page to get started. 
  3. What should I expect? Whether you’re attending a Workshop, a Solutions Showcase, a Meeting or a CXR Connects Webinar – you should always expect a high level of interactivity. Come with an open mind, ready to share your experiences and learn from others. You’ll also leave with some new connections. 

Up next: the CXR Library

The library is a treasure trove of information with everything from research reports to recordings of digital meetings. You’ll definitely want to get your bearings in the library and visit it often as you’re looking to learn and develop. There are hundreds of files in the library and you can sort them by category, topic or even format so if you just want to listen to podcast episodes, you can pull up all of them.
