Preventing the Loss of Key Talent

Preventing the Loss of Key Talent | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Should companies return to their pre-recession approach to talent management or significantly change the way they manage talent? It is definitely not time to go back to business as usual.


In this article by Edward Lawler on the Forbes website, he blasts human resources for not being flexible enough to manage talent in a changing environment. Unfortunately, he doesn't specifically identify what human resources is doing wrong, nor does he describe in depth what human resources should be differently - expect for the generic concept of being more "flexible".


What are your thoughts on this article? Is it clear that he's identified a core issue in hr management, or has the article missed by being too generic?

NeuroEngagement: Using Insights from Brain Science to Heighten Employee Engagement | Leader's Beacon

NeuroEngagement: Using Insights from Brain Science to Heighten Employee Engagement | Leader's Beacon | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it

This is a facsinating article looking at engagement through a neuro-science lens.  

 

As well as being in the employee engagement profession I am also an avid reader of the new scientist and a Neuro Linguistic Programming master practitoner so exploring engagement from this perspective made it a brilliant for me.  It takes further steps forward in explaining the 'why'' of employee engagement.   If you are interested in getting under the skin of this topic then this is a great place to start. 

 

Well worth a read.
