Talent shortage or talent wastage? Why talent waste is a problem

The world of work has irrevocably changed, and talent is now in extremely short supply which is leading to intense competition.  This situation is worsened by the current skills gap and demographic shifts, ensuring that in-demand workers will have the upper hand for the foreseeable future.

With a Net Zero approach to talent, organisations can aim for there to be zero waste throughout the talent pipeline, by enabling career mobility and building sustainable talent ecosystems.  If the right talent sustainability practices are in place, companies will benefit from a renewable supply of the right talent and at the right time.

This goes hand in hand with what workers want and creating that positive employee experience that empowers creativity and innovation. How people feel about their company, from their first touch to their last day, is key to driving talent sustainability.
