Content Originality and Guidelines

We strongly prefer content that is produced exclusively for TalentCulture – meaning it has not been published elsewhere first. Content should follow these guidelines:

  • Articles should be between 800 and 1,200 words.
  • Every article needs evidence, beyond your own opinion. Make sure you back up your arguments with data, research, or stories (not just Internet research, please!).
  • Content must be vendor and product neutral. Statistics or factual claims should be linked to their original (non-advertorial) sources.
  • All content is subject to editing to fit TalentCulture style.
  • Each article must include an author bio including a link to a Twitter account and LinkedIn profile. If you prefer, you may use your company Twitter account instead of your personal Twitter account.

Republishing And Repurposing Your TalentCulture Article

We happily encourage our contributors to republish and repurpose original content submitted to TalentCulture as long as it meets the following criteria:

  • There must be a minimum of 14 days between the publication of your content by TalentCulture and the time it is published elsewhere. NOTE: You may publish an introduction or summary that links to the full article at any time.
  • Any re-publication must cite TalentCulture as its original source and provide a link to the post on

What Happens After Sending Your Submission

  • The TalentCulture editorial team will review your pitch. If the theme is a good fit in our editorial calendar, we’ll ask you to submit a full draft.
  • When we receive your draft, we will edit for clarity. While any substantial changes are subject to author approval, we reserve the right to make small edits for clarity, grammar, length, removing non-relevant/redundant hyperlinks and avoiding advertorial angles. We may ask you to make changes or add further evidence. Our goal is to make your big ideas shine!
  • After the full editorial review, we will contact you to let you know our decision on placement, and publication timeline.
