The Talent Powered Organization: Strategies for Globalization, Talent Management and High Performance shows business leaders how to manage the new virtual workforce. It examines the crisis of employee engagement, the skills shortage and how to deal with globalization of a diverse workforce.
Every day, workforce talent is becoming harder to gain and easier to lose. A potentially lethal mix of changing workforce demographics, reduced workforce engagement and alignment, and the need for new skills are forcing organizations to look anew at their recruitment and retention strategies. Crucially, organizations that neglect to manage and grow their talent are destined to suffer a dramatic decline in business performance.
