The 2022 Forum

Building a stronger bridge between industry and higher education

The importance of talent management is difficult to overestimate. Talented employees are always in demand – in a good economy, they are your most valuable assets that provide extraordinary value, while in bad economic conditions, they are the ones who can keep your company afloat and competition at bay.  In times of change and crisis, like the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic woes, talent is the only true strength organizations can rely on. Talent management matters have come to the fore with even more intensity in the past couple of years. Everyone knows about the “Great Resignation”, “Great Reshuffling”, or “Great Retirement” – all of these monikers describe one thing, when talented individuals leave their organizations in large numbers, without looking back. This Forum is dedicated to the issues related to attracting and retaining talent in the post-pandemic world.
