Talent & Leadership
The pressure on an ability to manage talent has reached new heights due to the confluence of COVID, digitization of business, socio-economic issues and lifestyle. The wave of resignations is forcing employers to gain a deeper understanding of why employees are resigning, many without lining up new jobs. We are also seeing the use of employee analytics expand significantly in order to understand what factors lead to a more engaged workforce and a workplace environment that is more appealing to employees.

Talent Management Executive Insights will focus on the following issues related to the challenges of managing talent:
  • Why are employees leaving their current roles? Traditional reasons: Compensation? Health? Work-life balance? Emerging trends: are they valued by organization? Is the workplace a collaborative, trusting environment? Is there room for personal autonomy or flexibility in the workplace?
  • How are employers using advanced analytical tools to track engagement and the attitudes of employees by job grade, level, geography and to build preventative strategies in order to reduce attrition?
  • What types of organizations are more susceptible to attrition?
  • Which characteristics make companies attractive to talent? What are the key components for a successful career? What is the companies value proposition that makes it a preferred destination for an employee and how is it promoted?
  • Talent management strategy has historically been a board priority relative to CEO succession but given the changes in technology, the exiting of employees from the work force, more emphasis on work-life balance and diversity, boards are placing a discrete lens on talent management strategy. We will explore how boards are now viewing talent management strategy in light of current challenges.
