Talent management consistently ranks among the top three concerns of the C-suite. Despite the increasing focus, research findings from the global talent risk survey reveal that many organizations take a narrow approach to talent risk management– one that is steadily weakening their organization’s competitiveness.
Conducted by KPMG International in partnership with research firm Brandon Hall Group, the survey reached out to more than 1,200 top management personnel across 54 countries to discover which talent risks are keeping them awake at night and which ones they’re working hardest to mitigate. In India, KPMG India solicited more than 150 CXOs, business and HR leaders who participated in the survey. This offered us a strong opportunity to reach out to the respondents with an India focused report.
The resulting report – Time for a more holistic approach to talent risk–India findings indicates that talent managers need to trade their current preoccupation with capacity and capability related talent risks in favor of a significantly broader, better-balanced and more holistic approach to talent management.
