The search for talent

This is an unusual post. Usually we post articles for you to be able to see online. But today (after spending an entire day in the London airport), the focus is on a magazine and articles from there that every Human Resource manager should read.

That magazine, as you may have guessed by the picture, is the Economist. In this weeks issue, a 15-page special report on the search for talent, why it's getting harder to find, where people are finding it, and how they are successfully recruiting it are discussed.

The recommendation of this blogger is to pick up this issue and read through it. It may not pertain to you right now, but with the baby boomer generation retiring, this is going to be a huge problem in the not-so-distant future for many firms and organizations who rely on skilled labor to do their tasks. If you don't start thinking about the problem now, it may be too late.
