Our Talent management approach follows the unique talent philosophy given by Marc Effron, author of the #1 HBP Bestseller “One Page Talent Management”.



• According to PwC’s 17th annual global CEO survey, 2014, 88% of the companies are planning or implementing a change in their talent strategies to find, attract and retain a skilled workforce

• According to DDI and Human Capital Institute’s survey report, “Nearly 90% of HR leaders either agreed (46%) or strongly agreed (43%) with the statement, “Companies’ talent will be a primary differentiator of business success.”

• According to SHRM’s 2006 Talent Management Survey Report, 53% of organizations have specific talent management initiatives in place. Of these companies, 76% consider talent management a top priority. In addition, 85% of HR professionals in these companies work directly with management to implement talent management strategies

So then, what is a talent management strategy and how does talent management help businesses? A talent management program communicates your company’s “rules of the road” for managing talent. This creates a powerful tool to shape culture and drive performance.
