Global HR Update Q3 2022

In this edition of ChapmanCG’s Global HR Update, we call out the latest HR trends around the world. Our articles cover the topical “Great Resignation” and conversely, the retention and development opportunities presented by great talent management and internal mobility. We also pose ideas on how leading organisations can adopt their talent strategies to protect and strengthen them through these turbulent times, and highlight coaching strategies gleaned from our Asia Pacific partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership.

We hope you will enjoy reading our latest news and views on global human resources.
