However, most are adopting this strategy in a superficial way. Attracting and Retaining Talent offers a practical roadmap for developing a new, more productive workplace culture; one that examines the employment relationship, reflects the changing needs of the modern employee, and - at the same time - the interests of the progressive organisation.
