For years, the people that make up an organization have been regarded as the company’s most important asset. Traditionally, however, boards have had little involvement in talent management beyond the c-suite level. Today, investors want more information about employee development and talent management, particularly with respect to diversity and inclusion. Boards are being asked to address this issue with much more conviction than in the past.
In this episode, Chris O’Neill, board member with Gap Inc., discusses the growing involvement of boards in talent management and what we can expect looking forward:
- What should be the board’s role in talent management? How far down into the organization should they reach?
- What should boards be doing to ensure their companies are setting and making progress around diversity, equity, and inclusion goals?
