Two big areas of focus within HR departments is the attraction of good talent and then the retention of that talent. Some are now saying these function should be separated but that is a topic for another post. Global HR consulting firm Mercer is running an online survey designed to collect information on what HR departments across the global are doing in this area. For your efforts in completing the survey you can save 60% on the report that contains the results. That means you save US$624 in the report’s list price of US$1040, given that price tag I suspect only large companies will purchase it.
