Employers are investing more in talent but it’s no

Posted on Monday, March 18th, 2013 by

Employers are investing more money in talent, but much of it is proving ineffective, according to the latest Talent Barometer survey from Mercer. The survey showed that 60% of organisations worldwide have reported increasing their investment in talent in recent years, however only 24% said their plans are highly effective in meeting immediate and long-term human capital needs. It also found that while 77% of those surveyed have a strategic workforce plan in place, only 12% have plans that extend for five years or more. http://www.hrmagazine.co.uk/hro/news/1076573/employers-investing-talent-effective-mercer-report-reveals
