How To Help Your Organization Maintain a Strategic TA Process

Maintaining a strategic TA process is much more than simply sustaining a healthy pipeline of talent to your organization — although that might be the most important aspect of it. The key word here is “strategic,” as keeping a flow of people into the organization is valuable but at its core, it is a tactical process.
