Bowie, MD – What major challenges will your business face in the next five years? Most business leaders are concerned with growing their business, meeting the needs of their customers and developing new products and services. But without the right talent none of those objectives can be accomplished. Talent is the key to staying competitive.
“An organization’s human capital, the employees who show up every day, is their greatest asset and the difference between thriving and surviving,” says Dr. Shirley Davis, president of SDS Global Enterprises and thought leader on talent management. “You have to invest in your talent or someone else will.”
With recent advances in communications technology, businesses can now connect and collaborate with people from all over the world. As a result, the workforce itself has become increasingly more global and considerably more diverse; businesses must learn to leverage their human resources both virtually and remotely across borders to compete. Dr. Davis provides strategies and solutions to help business leaders and HR professionals better manage the challenges of the global workforce.
“A lot of the work you do customers don’t care about," says Dr. Davis. "Companies don’t see it that way so the workforce is more stressed. They have higher levels of anxiety and lower levels of engagement, productivity, morale and retention. It’s not necessarily a long-term sustainable business model so we have to be more efficient.”
With a doctorate in business and organizational management and over 25 years of experience in human resources, Dr. Davis is also an international speaker on topics including talent management, professional development and personal enrichment. Dr. Davis is the author of Reinvent Yourself: Strategies for Achieving Success in Your Career, Personal Life, Relationships and Finances.
