“Talent is no longer an HR issue. It is now at the epicentre of business focus. CEOs and business leaders now realise that in a global and increasingly competitive market, top talent is the leading indicator of whether a business is going up and down. Smart leaders put people before numbers and prioritise nurturing talent as a business imperative. it is time for HR to see talent from a different perspective; one that involves the business” : Dr Ram Charan.
