In business today, no competition is tougher than the global race for talented workers. In every industry, every job sector, and every part of the world, employers are asking the same question: How are we going to find, train, and retain the best workers?
Given the quickening pace of change in workplace technology and the growing demand for flexible, highly-skilled employees in all sectors of the economy, not even the most experienced workers can afford to rely on existing skills. To remain competitive, businesses must invest not just in the preparation and recruitment of new talent, but also the continuing development of workers at all stages of their careers.
