For modern firms, talent is the great differentiator.
Andrew Benett, president of Havas Worldwide, accurately targets and discusses the latest trends in organizational development and employment. While perhaps more thorough than original, Benett helpfully explains that modern companies need talented employees, employees need digital skills, firms need positive cultures, and so on. If the book has a godfather, he is the frequently cited John Sculley, the former Apple CEO. Within Benett’s clear update on the latest employment and organizational trends, particularly those concerning dealing with top talent, he also discusses companies – DreamWorks, Motley Fool, Dow – that rarely appear in business books. getAbstract recommends his overview to executives, managers, HR personnel and talented workers looking to make the most of their gifts in a newly welcoming marketplace.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why companies must recruit top talent;
- What contributions talented people make; and
- How firms are restructuring to attract, nurture and hold talent.
