Strengthening your talent value chain

With so many disruptive forces to confront as quickly as possible, companies must constantly re-evaluate their strategies to gain or maintain an edge in the market. In this competitive struggle, it can be easy to lose sight of how transactions and transformations require new approaches for your most important asset: the people who put your plans into action.

It takes significant time and funding to source, retain and engage your workers. Despite making significant changes to stay competitive, companies often follow talent strategies founded on the past, rather than equipped for the future.

Right now, coffee shops double as offices. Bots have become coworkers. Millennials, with different career expectations and needs, are increasingly a dominant force in the workplace. Automation is creating new efficiencies, and data-driven software offers new insights into what should be done, by who, and where.

To get the most out of your transformation or transaction, and the people who are the lifeblood of your organization, you need a holistic people strategy, pairing advances in technology with a fresh look about organizational structures, workspaces, workforce experiences, purpose and culture — what we think of as the talent value chain. For continuous improvement — and continued success — how does your company optimize each link in that value chain?
