Attracting the best talent has never been more important

Your people are your most important asset; that’s why it’s so important to hire, retain, and develop the best diverse talent.

With demand for consulting services at a record high due to skills shortages on the client side, management consultancies are not only trying to model the volume of capabilities they’re going to need, but how best to recruit, organise and retain them, according to Source Global Research.

When it comes to your senior leadership, the range of skills you need is greater than ever. It’s not just the need to bring in the new technical and market-specific skills that your clients demand. Today’s management consulting executives also need leadership skills to help keep and develop the best people.
