The HR profession is known for its catchphrases, and the expression “war for talent” is a phrase that is certain to produce a lively debate.
Whether you think the war is over or is only getting more intense, one thing is clear: It’s critical that talent managers are informed about the latest trends to remain competitive.
Knowledge about the latest developments in social recruiting, technology, onboarding, compliance, engagement strategies and analytics is critical to the continual evolution and survival of any organization’s talent management program.
