Center for Talent Innovation Staff


The mission of the Center for Talent Innovation is two-fold: to drive ground-breaking research that leverages talent across the divides of gender, generation, geography and culture; and to create a community of senior executives united by an understanding that full utilization of the global talent pool is at the heart of competitive success.

The flagship project of CTI is the Task Force for Talent Innovation. The mission of the Task Force is to respond to the challenges posed by the research and create action and impact. To date, the Task Force has spearheaded more than 200-plus new best practices that go beyond access and opportunity to retention and acceleration. This action on the ground has garnered significant attention, positioning Task Force members as "thought leaders" in global talent management. The Task Force is comprised of more than 80 global corporations and organizations representing nearly 6 million employees in 192 countries.
