Today, the challenge for businesses is to align new and retained talent with their ambitions while also ensuring continued resilience, responsiveness, and agility.
- As technology advances and job profiles change, talent managers must reskill existing staff and look at acquiring new talent, keeping both in balance.

- Apart from areas where workers’ physical presence remains critical – for example, in manufacturing – recruiters and talent managers are less and less limited by location as technology has created a virtual global talent pool.
- The challenge is to nurture and cultivate this ubiquity, harnessing it to maximize the opportunities ahead.
This paper looks at key focus areas that can help organizations address this efficiently.
