Featured Insights

  • Is #Talentbrand a Good Idea?
    The corporate brand has been faithfully fed and watered for years, but now another image-maker—the talent brand—is clamoring for attention. Is social media the right place to nurture it? Or is that a venue better left untapped?
  • Is It Time to Stop Feeding the Performance Management Dinosaur?
    Traditional performance management is one of those organizational routines that many people love to hate. Has the time come to lay it to rest? Or does it still merit an ongoing commitment?
  • Enterprise Cost Management: Save or Grow?
    Should cost savings be used to drive growth or taken to the bottom line?
  • Emerging Market Talent Management: Trust Tried and Tested or Explore New Approaches?
    Can established global enterprises continue the talent management practices that have contributed to their success through the years, or is it time to consider new approaches?
  • How Many Eggs Belong in the Leadership Basket?
    Should companies invest in developing a few designated successors or broaden their effort in order to build leadership bench strength?
  • Does the Open Talent Economy Need a Fence?
    These days, the people who do an organization’s work don’t always work for the organization. Is this open relationship good for business? Or would business be wise to keep some boundaries in place?
  • Workplace Flexibility—Are We Bending or Breaking?
    While businesses struggle to stay competitive in an increasingly difficult environment, employees yearn for work-life balance. Are flexible work arrangements a win-win that serves both interests? Explore the debate.
  • Popping the Question: Is Social Media an Effective Way to Engage Employees?
    Social media is a lot of things to a lot of people. But is it a viable tool for employee engagement?
  • Leadership Development: For the Talented Few, or For the Masses?
    Today, many talent professionals are facing a tough decision: should we invest in programs and tools targeting a small pool of high-potential talent, or is it smarter to focus on developing leadership at every level?
  • High Stakes Merger Integration: Is Leadership’s Primary Role to Mitigate Risks or Capitalize on Opportunities?
    Would leaders improve the odds of creating value by focusing on risks associated with a mergers and acquisitions (“M&A”) transaction? Or by generating strategic opportunities to seize the moment?
