The article reports on the claim of a study that firms are missing out on business because bosses do not have the time or skills to manage talent. Half of the HR managers surveyed in the Hewitt Talent Survey 2008 said they had lost out on business opportunities because talented employees had not been effectively managed. Eighty-four per cent of the respondents claimed that managers did not have the time to manage talented staff. Nick Warren of Hewitt Associates says talent strategies are not filtering down to line managers.
