Only twelve (12) percent of organizations have a fully implemented talent management strategy, according to a survey by Right Management.

The survey found that little consensus has developed regarding talent management strategy. Twenty-five percent said they have created such a strategy but face challenges with its implementation. Similarly, 7% reported having a strategy but described it as merely a statement of objectives and/or philosophy. The largest group (44%) reported that they have a series of separate HR processes which are not integrated as a true talent management strategy. Twelve percent admit to not having any strategy at all.
