Modern Workforce

Leverage new talent management strategies for today's finance workforce

In this point of view, we examine how the new CFOs, and their teams can develop and implement an effective, employee-centric, talent management strategy to help ensure that the finance workforce has the right skills and competencies to meet current and future demands. We discuss how finance leaders can consider four Ds to develop a strategy for talent management: Discover, Define, Design, and Deploy. We also note that a finance talent strategy is not “one size fits all.” It is important to review existing talent strategy and assess the maturity of processes to evaluate finance’s preparedness for the future of work.
