Do we have the right team for implementing our strategy? Where can we find it? How do we manage and measure talent? Are we leading a well-aligned digital culture? These are some of the main questions asked by organizations when faced with the need to manage talent during this fourth industrial revolution.
Immersed as we are in the global and digital age, cultural transformation is the key to satisfying the market’s latest demands. Consequently, companies are applying a wide variety of changes to the way they recruit, retain and develop the loyalty of new profiles with digital skills.

To debate this issue, the session will count with the presence of international managers who are pioneering the implementation of a transformative vision of talent in organizations.
