Outrageous Talent Practices – They Grab The Attention Of Top Talent


If you’re battling to recruit and retain top talent, you must have talent practices that go beyond the mundane in order to get their attention. And if you expect to impress the even more valuable innovators or creative types, you must go further and do something truly bold to get their attention.
