Getting the most from the people in your organization is more important than ever. Talent Management delivers contributions from 10 authors, including in-depth case studies about six major organizations:
- Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
- Liberty Mutual
The authors of each chapter tell their own stories, discussing the widely varied approaches that worked in their companies and how they think about talent management. They provide insight into management's role, the impact on processes and practices, and links to business results.
Additional chapters cover the impact of company strategy and current research on talent management and provide a sound background in the history and future of the field. The concept of talent management is in a state of flux and uncertainty, evolving as time and technology change the nature of work itself and creating a need for change in the conventional wisdom associated with talent management.
With this book as your road map, you can cultivate an integrated approach to managing all aspects of an organization that have to do with people. Talent management is now a business imperative, necessary to create a highly responsive, high-performance, sustainable organization that meets its business targets. Put the experiences and insights of others to work for you, and find the unique path that will help individuals and your organization reach their goals.
