Tagging for Talent introduces a breakthrough approach for human resources, senior executives and line managers to find hidden talent from within their own organizations. This unique method challenges the status quo of talent identification and succession planning with an easy crowdsourcing approach to competency recognition.

This is not a book about using social media, but a true business solution using the natural behaviors of your workforce to self-identify potential myriad of talent. It speaks to HR professionals and senior leaders who are looking for simple to use, real-life solutions that can be implemented in business today. Employees already see the power of tagging and view this innovative approach as a fun way to recognizing talent, versus the old method of waiting for their manager to see or perceive their strengths.

For years, executives have been asking, “Why am I spending all of this time and money when I keep getting the same results?” Tagging for Talent inspires leaders to tap into the power of the crowd, along with practical guidance on how to put a peer-based tagging system in place—and take their company up a notch!
