What Keeps CEOs Awake At Night - Part III

Identifying, retaining and replacing the best talent in an organization is the key issue most likely to keep chief executives awake at night.

Key findings from a recent study by Accenture:

  • More than 60% of the respondents to annual survey of chief executives said that the inability to attract and retain the best talent is now a key threat to their business, outstripping the issue of low employee morale.
  • Chief executives and financial officers need to empower and champion HR more effectively, so that people issues rise to the top of the business agenda

BOTTOMLINE: Succession planning, leadership training, and keeping the workforce aligned with the strategy and goals of the company are key to long-term talent management.
