Talent and review

Talent and Organization Review process is designed to identify key talents in our organization and produce action plans to develop, retain and engage them. The process also results in a view of our talent pipeline to identify and prepare successors for our most business-critical positions. Ultimately, it supports the long-term success of the company. Managers play a critical role in this process and directly benefit from it. It also enables the identification of capability needs for the organization.
