For organizations that are focused on lasting success, competing effectively for talent is critical. Changing demographics and baby boomer retirement is changing the face of the global workforce—and shrinking the talent pool.

The solution to winning the talent wars and creating and sustaining a culture of excellence is to have a comprehensive talent management system. Webcast presenter Lance A. Berger, author of The Talent Management Handbook, discusses the basic components of a TMS and offers insights on its implementation. The knowledge you gain could be the first step to ensuring your organization both attracts and keeps the employees it needs for future survival.
