Description: Libraries need the “next” workforce to transform and innovate. Organizations can use talent management to recruit, retain, and develop the future staff they need.

Learning outcomes:

* Learn about the components of talent management and their relationships to organizational strategies, outcomes, and succession planning.

* Know how to get started addressing the talent management needs within an organization.
