Understand the dynamics of retaining talent and manage to maximize retention

Retention of your critical talent is one of the top talent management concern in today's global economy. The true ROI of top talent isn't realized if that talent leaves.

It’s a Millennial World but Everyone Else Lives Here Too

February 19, 2014 | Andrew Bateman | HCI

When I read articles about how we’re all living in a Millennial world, I’m reminded how this same conversation is repeated every time the societal demographics reach a tipping point in the balance and transfer of power within the workplace. It’s easy to point out the differences in generational communication today, in fact it’s important to understand and recognize the potential breakdowns that occur within multigenerational business units.
