Welcome to the Talent Economy—a 21st century economy characterized by unprecedented innovation, connectivity, disruption, and opportunity.
Unfortunately, the positive attributes of this economy have been largely overshadowed thus far. With job satisfaction declining across three decades, employee turnover costing organizations billions, profitability shrinking, and millions of Boomers retiring, the impetus to close the widening gap between talent-development practices and business impact has never been greater.
For too long, we’ve just assumed there is no other way. But Sarah Sladek proves there is another way.
Drawing from documented workforce and talent-development research, as well as her own ongoing study of generational impacts, her presentation cites numerous examples of organizations that have been capable of engaging employees in this era of disruption—what they did, why it worked, and how it’s made a difference to the organizations’ outlook and bottom line.
Sladek proves that it’s possible to create an organization designed to engage talent, and she provides audiences with the guidance to do it.
