ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study that examined whether advances in talent thinking during the past 20 years are being applied in the boardroom. According to interviews of participants from twenty companies, they believed investment in people directly supported business performance. The study results indicate that best practice in a challenging business climate involves taking positive steps to retain and develop talent to gain a competitive advantage and prepare for recovery, rather than merely surviving the downturn.
