Winning the Talent Wars
"Five years ago, in Managing Generation X, Bruce Tulgan stunned management by suggesting that the stubborn independence of young workers was more than a temporary irritant. It was the opening shot in the free-agent revolution - a massive rejection of the traditional employment relationship." "Tulgan's message was prophetic. The free-agent mindset quickly swept across the work force, luring people of all ages. But it was his diagnosis of how to deal with the resulting staffing crisis that led Fortune 500 companies - from sleek high-tech operations to old-line manufacturing firms, and even some of the most respected consulting firms - to invite him to teach their managers, step by step, how to get productivity from this new type of workforce." "In Winning the Talent Wars, Tulgan shares with the rest of us what he has learned and taught at the front lines of this war for talent, a war that many see as the single most important challenge business faces in the twenty-first century. Winning the Talent Wars is based on five additional years of research about the character and proclivities of this swelling free-agent labor force. Tulgan also brings to the table valuable, never-before-published stories about how managers at some of America's most influential corporations are quietly coming up with innovative solutions. This is a book that no manager can afford to miss."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
