Culled from issues of Harvard Business Review first published from 1996-2010, these 11 articles focus on finding and retaining the best employees. A group of business scholars and practitioners from the US and Europe discuss recruiting talent during a recession and in emerging markets; growing, instead of hiring, industry stars; communicating the company's signature experience to show what it is like to work there and what makes it unique; creating a leadership development program; retaining top talent and the mistakes made by companies that don't; matching employees to jobs that fit their life interests; supporting background employees; keeping talented women on a successful path when they return to work; managing diversity; and mentoring millennials.
