In the wake of the greatest shock to the labor market since the Great Depression, companies are faced with looming skill shortages, retention concerns, and questions regarding the most effective composition of their workforce.

Ferguson and coauthors Lorin Hitt (Wharton School) and Prasanna Tambe (NYU's Stern School) commissioned a landmark big data study of more than 2,700 employers and 33 million resumes to find the relationship between market performance, education attainment, and employee tenure. The findings are enlightening--and quite surprising.

"The Talent Equation" explores: The ROI of increased education levels and retention rates The benefits of continuous recruitment and talent pipelines technology market, and how workforce analytics tools are changing talent acquisition The importance of reducing longterm unemployment through training and reskilling

Smart and timely, "The Talent Equation" also incorporates case studies from leading brands--both global and domestic--that further illustrate staffing issues facing executives today. The insights and research in the book are invaluable tools for anyone who wants to build and retain a dynamic, competitive, and productive workforce.
