Editorial Reviews

Review

Agile Talent is an interesting read in this emerging business context where cloud sourcing (getting external talent) is now becoming a differentiated business strategy... a practical roadmap for leaders to create conditions for maximising engagement, performance and contribution of external talent.” — Businessworld India

“This well-researched book will prove interesting not only to chief executives and HR leaders, but to the many people now operating in the gig economy who will hope that some of its key messages resonate with those who employ them.” — Irish Times

“Readers will learn how to make a business case for hiring external talent, orient them to their organizations, offer them professional development, and optimize teamwork between them and permanent, full-time employees.” — TD magazine (Association for Talent Development)
