Talent Generation: How Visionary Organizations Are Redefining Work and Achieving Greater Success
By Sarah L. Sladek
Welcome to the Talent Economy - a 21st-century economy characterized by unprecedented innovation, connectivity, disruption, and opportunity. The need to engage younger generations of talent is widespread and urgent. Our leadership is aging and the skills gap continues to grow. The impetus to close the widening disparity between talent-development practices and business impact has never been greater.
Drawing from documented workforce and talent-development research, as well as her own ongoing study of generational impacts, Sarah Sladek 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 these organizations’ outlook and bottom line.
This intriguing publication by the author of “The End of Membership as We Know It’ and “Knowing Y: Engaging the Next Generation Now,” proves that it's possible to create an organization designed to engage the necessary talent to bridge the gap. This book equips associations with the much-needed insights to make smart, confident, future-focused workforce decisions.
