Navigating talent challenges of today while building a profession for tomorrow

Technology, globalization, increasing regulation, and the pandemic are reshaping the way people work, learn, collaborate, and lead. Organizations are rethinking their talent strategies at all stages of the employee life cycle and are looking to the open talent economy to find better ways to attract, access, develop, and retain talent. In this episode, host Burt Rea interviews Deloitte’s Lara Abrash and Steve Kimble on evolving talent models to meet the needs of the workforce of today and in the future before diving deeper into the creation and launch of Deloitte’s MADE Commitment.

It's not just about KPIs, like how many people are here or how many people have left the organization, but this workforce of the future needs to thrive. They need to know they’re part of an organization that cares about them, that they’re open to different ways of working, which hybrid is, but also, open to their own development and advancement and they see it.

—Lara Abrash, Deloitte
