Acquiring and managing talent is one of the biggest strategic challenges for businesses. Finding and keeping the skills needed to create and extract value from your current and planned geographical markets is proving increasingly difficult, as is getting the most from your existing pool of talent. While you have staff with specific functional skills, they often lack the global awareness and leadership abilities in an increasingly networked and virtual world of work.
This masterclass will examine how you can win the war for talent by deploying a range of approaches which lets you and your organisation align your future with your present inventory skills.
