Session at IBM Connect 2014 delivered by Marcia Conner, Sensify Group; David Leaser, IBM Corporation; Sandra Conner, IBM Corporation.
Despite the high unemployment rates in many countries, more than 65% of global leaders cite “talent and leadership shortages” as their #1 business challenge. And the problem is getting worse: A full 90% of organizations do not have all the skills they need to be successful. How can that be? In this session, we will challenge you to throw out everything you know about attracting, hiring and building talent in your organization. Then we’ll show you the technology and programs IBM is building to develop talented, inspired employees who create great things for your company.
