Resourcing and talent planning survey

Resourcing and Talent Planning 2015

The Resourcing and talent planning survey report, produced in partnership with Hays, examines organisations’ resourcing and talent planning strategies and practices, and the key challenges and issues they face.

The survey highlights that talent management is becoming a higher priority for CEOs and many organisations are having to look externally to meet the changing skills needed in-house. 

"What is clear is that organisations that fail to prioritise talent
management risk losing out as demand for key skills escalates."
