ABOUT THE BOOK
“Our employees are our greatest asset”—it’s a cliché companies feel obliged to spout. Some may even believe it. But as with eating healthy food and getting exercise, lip-service doesn’t make goals come true. In this groundbreaking book, Andrew Benett explores how truly “talent centric” organizations thrive in today’s changing economy.
Based on original research and in-depth interviews with outstanding leaders of talent-driven organizations such as Zappos, DreamWorks Animation SKG, Nestle, Dow Chemical, The Motley Fool, AnswerLab, and more, Benett uncovers emerging trends and benchmarks and shows why it is so important to invest in and develop tomorrow’s talent.
