In the consulting profession, people are a firm’s greatest asset. In nearly all cases, the firm with the best talent wins. But how do you find hire, onboard and, ultimately retain, that top talent? Now more than ever, firms need to make sure they’re sourcing the best talent they possibly can, bringing them onboard properly, as well as properly identifying those consultants in their ranks who are top performers. What Best Practices are firms using to find stars, develop them and make sure they stay? And what tools—such as analytics and Big Data—are effectively helping firms manage that process? In good times and in bad, successful firms are always rethinking and retooling talent management.
