Make offers that secure talent for the longer haul by incorporating career and succession models with career mapping. Find the right match to the job and fit to culture by partnering and managing each employee’s professional development while teaching managers to be leaders.  The success of the organization depends on HR’s ability to screen, interview, and select the right talent.
