HR on Alert: Talent vs. Skills Paradox

Talent, talent everywhere, but they can’t find jobs. What is HR doing about it? The experts speak.

Dr. Katherine Jones: “Businesses of all sizes have struggled to shift their resources toward growth markets, yet they find a shortage of talent and leadership holding them back.

China Gorman: “The changing demographics within the workforce are creating enormous challenges as the Baby Boomers hang on for dear life and the Millennials start pushing up the ladder. The Xers are getting caught with nowhere to go! We may miss a generation in the C-suite.”

Jan Grasshoff: “2013 is all about mobility: mental mobility of talents, mobile HR service delivery, mobile learning, mobile workplace, mobile organizations. A key role for HR to play!”
