Finding the right talent is hard. Finding the right talent that will prosper and stay is even harder. Business growth is being stifled and fields of office cubicles remain empty due to the fierce competition for talent today with job openings having recently surged to a record high: 6.55 million.

Evergreen Talent will show you how to attract, find, and keep employees for the long-term. What many organization leaders fail to understand is that you can't simply transplant a competitor's talent strategy and achieve the same results - just as you can't take plants suited to a warm climate and expect them to thrive in chillier locales. The conditions are too different. But a company that takes the time to examine its own environment, select talent accordingly, and nurture its people will stand tall, regardless of economic conditions.

In Evergreen Talent, Roberta Chinsky Matuson challenges leaders to think differently about their approach to growing a sustainable workforce - one that will regenerate regularly, with minimal effort on their part. The audiobook is filled with pragmatic advice, case studies, and best practices from companies that have done this successfully. Also included are tools to help listeners assess their workplace environment and populate their organization with talent that will continue to grow, year after year.
