As business leaders focus on top-line growth, the value of learning is becoming better understood and more relevant. Those leaders who understand how to drive business results in an increasingly competitive, global environment recognize that a better-trained workforce improves performance, and investing in employee learning and development is critical to achieving success.

Seventy-five percent of executives said talent management is a critical issue in global researches by ASTD (the world’s largest association dedicated to workplace learning and performance professionals), and Towers Perrin ATP Track Research. The increased focus on talent management results from a maelstrom of challenges: the demographic shift driving a dearth of talent; the globalized talent market; the need for new, complex sets of capabilities to drive growth; and firms (particularly those in emerging markets) struggling to attract and retain talent. Increasingly, executives view talent management not as a “nice to have,” but as a critical tool used in the service of achieving business objectives. This has led learning to move from plug and play to become more integrated with business strategy.

The corporate giants of the new economy are high on people dependence, and we are accelerating towards a scenario where - “Money’s at a discount and talent’s at a premium”
To maintain their leadership, corporates are actively seeking assessment & development solutions to acquire and upgrade the skills of their HR Talent in order to remain ahead and develop their people to take on higher responsibilities and manage employee attrition, and this is just what Talent Craft provides.

Talent Craft, in its endeavor to ‘Simplify Learning’ and bring the ‘Best in Class’ solutions in assessment and training, will also conduct regular seminars and knowledge forums on global trends & practices, for the benefit of Indian entrepreneurs and industry.”
