Recruitment & Talent Succession Planning: A Strategic Approach

“We can raise the talent bar, but you have to do something different. You can’t do what you are currently doing today” – Lou Adler

Does your organization have a talent management strategy to recruit for tomorrow and the future or is just a daily knee jerk reaction?

Recruitment training can make the difference to your business as the wrong hire could be an expensive mistake.
