Talent Management 


Talent management is a multi-faceted initiative that includes best practices for recruiting, retaining and promoting the right people. Its employee-oriented programs have become particularly important because of emerging demographic and economic issues in the US and around the world. For example:

Baby boomers are retiring and taking their wisdom and institutional memory with them.

The next generation is only 75% the size of the boomer population. A shortage of  highly-skilled individuals is already affecting recruiting and productivity.

Generation X and Y want the opportunity to make a contribution, participate in ongoing training and lead balanced lives. Loyalty to their employer is not a key value for them.

Workforce diversity is a critical issue. Women, minorities and employees in other countries require an open-minded culture that fosters inclusiveness.

Record numbers of managers and employees are leaving their organizations to become entrepreneurs.

Mergers, acquisitions, downsizing, outsourcing, reorganizations and other transitions often negatively impact productivity and morale.

Recruiting and retention costs are increasing as employees become more difficult to find and keep.

Career Dimensions has developed a variety of programs for profit and nonprofit organizations, small businesses, government and academic institutions that foster job satisfaction and productivity, reduce turnover, improve profitability and create a “best to work for” reputation. Companies who use these programs recognize their employees as their most valuable assets, not as expendable costs.

These focus on the career development of high performance employees, women, minorities or other targeted groups. Each Mastermind is unique because it sets its own mission, goals and agenda. However, some typical topics include:

Increasing revenue/profits and decreasing costs

Improving processes or systems

Soliciting focus-group feedback and opinion leader buy-in on important corporate initiatives

Building camaraderie and trust

Recruiting, retaining, mentoring and promoting employees

Motivating employees in tough times

Developing effective strategies for managing diversity.

After the first meeting, Career Dimensions will:

Develop future agendas for meetings and conference calls based upon member suggestions

Inform participants of the meeting/call dates, locations and agenda topics

Facilitate all meetings to ensure the group addresses its entire agenda and the sponsor and participants get the maximum value from the experience

Communicate with members between meetings

The sponsoring organization will:

Coordinate the logistics including meeting venue, meals and travel arrangements

Take and transcribe the meeting minutes

Encourage attendance

Pay Career Dimensions' fees and travel expenses, as well as the costs for the meeting.

Our consultation fees are $250 per hour. Facilitation fees are $3,000 per day or $1,500 per one-half day, plus travel expenses.
