HR at the Table: Episode 1

With Chief Talent Officer at Stanley Black & Decker

Organizations today are faced with strong business disruptions and competition from new sources, emphasizing the importance of specialized talent for business innovation and sustainability. The war for talent is intense. Large Goliath-like organizations often have the upper hand when recruiting, hiring, and retaining talent, but that’s all about to change. With Minh Hua, the Chief Talent Officer at Stanley Black & Decker, we discussed how the “Davids” of today (like you!) can compete with modern-day Goliaths for top talent. 

Together, we explored:

  • The current state of today’s talent market 
  • Top factors impacting talent recruitment and retention
  • Using what you’ve got to compete for talent
  • Tools and strategies to win the war for talent
