From the Back Cover
'Competing for Talent' identifies the emerging role of attracting, retaining and developing talent in the 21st century organisation. It enables readers to develop a strategic understanding of the dynamics and the competitive advantage of the talent factor in modern business and society. This book enables the reader to:
· gather cutting-edge research insights to the growth of talent, · align the talent management process with the corporate strategy, · develop knowledge on global talent competition and mobility, · learn from worldwide best practices and cases in talent management, · reap the benefits of successful recruitment and retainment of talent, · link talent management with culture, leadership, and labour relations, · explore ways to redesign talent management in today’s challenging market, · raise cultural awareness on talent diversity in the (digital) workplace.
Globalization, growing operational complexity, an aging workforce, scarcity of talent, and greater international workforce mobility made the competition for talent a business case. Talent is the oil of the future and is the key to strategic success. Talent means all people in an organisation that contribute to its goals and competitive advantage. “In this wide-ranging book the editors urge that companies pay more attention to the Talent Factor.They argue that talent and team-building need not be adversaries; a strong work culture can co-exist with consistent work out-performance. Talent is a rare commodity and tomorrow’s CEOs and today’s HR specialists will be grateful for the attention given to it by the authors of this fascinating book.” Professor dr David Weir, chair Intercultural Management, Liverpool Hope University, UK. 'By approaching Talent Management from practically all angles, the topicality and educational applicability, Competing for Talent offers unique added values. The ‘rational spiral’, in which most organisations find themselves, will be breached by integration of emotional aspects, leading to new innovative insight. This book opens doors towards absolute winning experiences for general and HR management.'
