Start the new year with progress
Harvard Business Review    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
To get yourself and your team off to a good start for the new year, focus on progress.

ERE    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Talent Management    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Most marriages — and most client-vendor relationships — start well, with high expectations for success. But data in a 2010 Bersin & Associates report on client satisfaction with talent management vendors shows that in a 900-plus sample, most clients are slightly less than somewhat satisfied with their talent management systems.
