    Do you worry about retaining your top talent?  How to leverage skills for improved productivity? Cost of turnover? Lost institutional knowledge? Your best employees, the most talented performers, always have the option to find work elsewhere – regardless of the economy!  Highly skilled workers may be sitting on the sidelines waiting for someone to notice them.  This presentation provides insights and tools you can use to proactively address potential gaps in your approach to talent management and to effectively leverage the skills of increasingly complex employee populations.
