Integrated Talent Management

Opportunities for growth are challenged by a shrinking pool of talent. Consistently rated by CEOs as one of their “Top 5” challenges, according to The Conference Board’s annual Global CEO report, human capital challenges are a pressing concern across regions.

The most successful organizations link talent management with strategy, and provide the optimal resources to support evolving business needs. Effective talent management is essential in the global economy, as the war for talent has no borders.

Business leaders who invest in talent management can capitalize on emerging trends and opportunities more quickly than competitors. In fact, research from UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School has demonstrated that organizations that have a strategic talent management program have:

2x the revenue than those without talent management programs

40% lower employee turnover

38% higher employee engagement
