Development of talent will continue to be a key focus area for emerging economies like India. The employer brand of an organization is built through the vision of its leadership team, and those organizations that are able to establish an employee value proposition that is built on sound talent management and reward philosophies, will be better placed for long-term success. In that context, the CEO drives the talent agenda and understands that attraction, retention and development of talent are key to the sustainability of the business.
For me, the most important people priority is to ensure that our employer brand is reflective of the Towers Watson culture and values. Employee engagement, attraction and retention of talent and associate development and wellness, are a consequence of how well one is able to execute on the brand promise.
