Greetings From Joe Frodsham

Joe Frodsham
It has been a busy fall season for CMP in which we have enjoyed partnering with our clients on some timeless, and emerging talent issues.  Whether old or new, these talent issues are of critical importance to business success. In our November issue, we are offering some articles that help address these current and common talent issues:
  • Ten Actionable Talent Acquisition Trends  - sourcing and attracting the right talent continues to be a key focus.  However, the recruiting landscape is dynamic and ever evolving.  This article highlights trends that have direct ramifications for your talent acquisition strategy and tactics.
  • Succession Planning Roadmap - filling your internal talent pipeline continues to be an area of critical focus.  As I heard one Board Member recently say, "our strategy will be constrained by a lack of talent if we don't get our talent development right."  This article outlines some key principles and practices for implementing and/or improving your succession planning.
  • 5 Tips for Downsizing With Dignity While Avoiding Lawsuits - when the difficult decision is made, it is critical that you downsize so you (the Company) and the employee are as comfortable as possible with the process.  Whether you are reducing one, or one-thousand employees, this article can help ensure you do so with dignity for the individual while protecting your Brand.
As always, we value your feedback.  Please do reply with any questions and insights.
Much Regards,
Joe Frodsham
