In an age in which the term sustainability is used in reference to everything from the economy to the environment, it is not surprising that the idea of Talent Sustainability has begun to take shape. What is surprising, perhaps, is that some of these ideas run contrary to traditional thinking about High Potentials and how to retain them. In this Accenture HR Executive Network webcast, Allan H. Church, Ph.D, Vice President of Talent and Organization & Management Development at PepsiCo, Inc. defines talent sustainability and how it has morphed into what his organization calls the Three Cs. These include Culture: providing a supportive and empowering workplace. Community: an organizational goal of raising the standard of living in the communities it calls home and Career: developing and creating career paths for their talent and creating sustainable growth.
Dr Church will share the two models PepsiCo uses to classify talent, their operational definition of high potentials and how this has changed over time. He will also look at why, when viewed through the lens of the Three C's -it is less about who they retain than why they are retained.
