New Talent Management Handbook Highlights Right Managements Thought Leadership

PHILADELPHIA, PA, May 17, 2011 — The just-issued second edition of McGraw-Hill’s The Talent Handbook features four chapters by thought leaders from Right Management. Right Management is the talent and career management expert within ManpowerGroup, the world leader in innovative workforce solutions.

The first edition was well received within the training and development community as well as by corporate management and business leaders, and the new volume builds on that success, said Gerald Purgay, Senior Vice President at Right Management. “The Talent Handbook has become the go-to resource for HR professionals, CEOs and business leaders who want to take the lead in building a diverse, talented and motivated workforce. It is the most comprehensive guide to finding, developing and keeping the best talent as well as the latest thinking on these crucial concerns for senior management.”

Right Management contributed four key chapters:

– Creating a Culture of Success: What Every CEO Needs to Know, Owen Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer, demonstrates how a strategic approach to talent management builds a culture of success and ensure organizations meet their business objectives.

– Using 360-Degree Feedback for Talent Development, Michael Haid, Senior Vice President Talent Management, outlines how this approach can be used most effectively in organizations increasingly managing a more complex and sophisticated workforce.

– Employee Engagement and Talent Management, Deborah Schroeder-Saulnier, Senior Vice President Global Solutions, considers the nature and importance of engagement, the challenges it poses to organizations and key drivers to address these challenges.

– Making Outplacement Part of your Strategy, Tony Santora, Executive Vice President Global Solutions, looks at how outplacement has evolved and details emerging needs and expectations of both organizations and individuals.

Each chapter offers practical step-by-step management tools and techniques, examples of best practice and case studies, as well as detailing up-to-the-minute resources and technologies.

Purgay observed: “Talent management is about to get even more challenging this year. In a hyper-competitive global marketplace, people are the only way organizations can clearly differentiate themselves. Creating an effective talent management strategy is increasingly critical to business success. This book is an essential resource for practitioners and leaders keen to develop their workforce strategies.”

Note to editors:

Based on years of research, hundreds of global consultations, and the contributions of top industry leaders, The Talent Management Handbook is the most authoritative guide on the market for finding and utilizing the best people.
