Session Three: Taking control of Talent Management

95% of HR leaders cited burnout as the main reason that their top talent is heading for the door. It’s no longer enough for businesses to think onboarding ends when a contract is signed, or that employees will find their own way in an organisational structure. HR needs to take centre stage in leading the Talent Management revival, through asking the difficult questions that every Board needs to hear.

  • How is the business evaluating senior executives and their direct reports?
  • What is the business doing to retain its high-potential talent?
  • Has HR kept pace with the changing demands of the workplace?
