Why your Race for Talent should be a 'Slow' one

Monday 8 July 2013

If you've seen me speak before you already know I take a provocative stance when it comes to areas like personnel development, training and recruitment. Clients also know that once we've opened the door to thinking differently, they're guided through some significant 'of course' moments in terms of how they approach developing their people and attracting and retaining talent. The '8 Factors model' is just one of those approaches and in the following conversation with ABC Darwin's Vicki Kerrigan I discuss two others:

The first is the 'Slow Retirement' an idea I first floated to my manufacturing clients around 2007 or so.  The second and related idea is the Slow Engagement approach, which emerged a couple of years later when considering why so many companies see young workers leave so often and so quickly.
