The Current Situation
For those charged with keeping their organization’s talent up to date, the current situation is daunting. Trying to maintain a talent base that is ready and able to take on rapidly changing challenges is a monumental task – and yet more important than ever to the success of your company. Just ask Amazon who just committed $700 million to retrain one-third of its workforce in new skills by 2025.
Talent managers need to develop talent management strategies that figure out how to “reskill” and “upskill” employees shoved aside by automation and other advances. One report claims that this group of workers accounts for almost 66% of current headcount.

For companies that rely on their people to succeed, business results depend getting the right people with the right capabilities in the right positions to consistently perform. You need to be able to attract, engage, retain, and develop a workforce that is up to what is required.
