How to build a sustainable talent pool for Consumer Goods companies - Pedersen and Partners Executive Search

Everybody knows that "talent" is important for their own business or country, and feels obliged to mention it frequently. But what is actually behind these words? Does your organisation have a clear talent strategy and an action plan, and has it defined what exactly it wants to achieve? Most importantly, does the strategy exist only on paper, or is there clear follow-up on progress and measured outcomes?
