“Why we are losing the war for talent and how technology can make a difference”
Senior executives widely acknowledge they are in a war for talent, but they are focused on the wrong battlefronts. The success of Dilbert and The Office suggest that we are losing the war for talent. New generations of technology, in particular cloud computing, social software and big data analytics can help companies to reverse this trend. To do this, however, executives must shift their focus to the day to day work environment as the place where the war for talent will be won or lost. If we took talent development as a top priority, how would we redesign all dimensions of our work environment and what role might these new technologies play in that redesign?
