Talent management: what can we learn from the Olympic ‘Atlanta debacle?’
Organisational leaders could learn a lot from the way Team GB reacted to the disaster of Atlanta.
Ensuring you have the right talent to build, sustain and respond to the changing world around you starts with clarity of purpose.
It then requires the ability to focus effort where and when it matters most.
Trying to shave a few pounds off the HR budget – rather than focusing on the productivity benefits of more effective people management – doesn’t get you very far.
We recently undertook a study on business agility – you can download the full report here – which was based on in-depth interviews and survey with senior HR professionals at thirty large organisations.
The majority of organisations had HR functions of over 100 staff, an average of more than 100,000 employees – with the largest employing almost 400,000 people.
In total, the organisations taking part in the research represented approximately 3,000,000 employees.
