Ep 90: What Is Exceptional Talent?
A bit of a special episode this week. As regular listeners will know, “Exceptional Talent” the book I’ve co-authored with Mervyn Dinnen has just been published. With so many of the themes covered in the book crossing over with those that get covered on the podcast I thought it would make sense to give you a deep dive into the book’s content. My guest this week to help me do this is, of course, my co-author Mervyn. Topics we discuss: • What is the book about and why did we write it • Our definition of Exceptional Talent and the Talent Journey • Getting Talent Attention • Recruitment and Marketing • Art vs Science in the reinvention of Assessment • Continuous Onboarding • HR as Talent Producers • Developing The Employee Experience • Engagement and Retention • The implications of more technology in the workplace You can buy the book here directly from Kogan Page and if you use discount code FHRET20 you’ll get 20% off.
