The TDXCI is a composite score that takes into account four key indicators for how talent development executives believe the talent development function will change during the next six months:
· Ability to Meet Talent Development Needs
· Impact on Corporate Performance
· Perception of the Value of the Talent Development Function
· Availability of Resources.
The TDXCI is modeled after the Conference Board Measure of CEO Confidence, which rates CEOs’ expectations for the economy on a quarterly basis.
Talent development executives have a slightly higher level of optimism about the health of the function that they oversee compared with last quarter, with the TDXCI score at 61.9, up from 61.0 last quarter. However, the current score is lower than any score seen in 2014 or 2015.
