The Talent War: How to Find and Retain the Best People for Your Company
The Talent War addresses the growing problem faced by managers and bosses over the difficulty of finding and retaining talented employees in this day and age. As Kerry Larkan rightly points out, a rapidly aging population will trigger critical skill shortages and companies will increasingly have to fight harder than ever to attract and keep the best people for their company. In The Talent War, Kerry Larkan looks at some of the most successful companies with high retention rates and conducts interviews with key managerial figures to understand their policies and attitudes towards hiring and nurturing staff. The Talent War demonstrates, step by step, how to hire the right people (with the right values and character) for your company, how to get the most out of them and how to encourage them to stay.
