Welcome to the Talent Economy a 21st-century economy characterized by unprecedented innovation, connectivity, disruption, and opportunity.
Unfortunately, the positive attributes of the Talent Economy have been largely overshadowed thus far by the continual decline of employee job satisfaction, employee turnover costing organizations billions of dollars, shrinking profitability, and the Boomer retirement wave.
The need to engage younger generations of talent is widespread and urgent. Our leadership is aging and the skills gap continues to grow. The impetus to close the widening disparity between talent- development practices and business impact has never been greater.

It’s Talent Generation.
Drawing from documented workforce and talent-development research, as well as her own ongoing study of generational impacts, Sarah Sladek cites numerous examples of organizations that have been capable of engaging employees in this era of disruption what they did, why it worked, and how it’s made a difference to the organizations outlook and bottom line.
