Catalyst Magazine | Issue 2

In our second edition of Catalyst, we're putting emphasis on our belief that the future of talent acquisition and management lies in integrated strategic thinking.

Catalyst Issue 2 brings to life the importance of looking past interim talent needs to take a long-term and holistic view of the workforce. It’s about Total Workforce Solutions: a challenge and an opportunity for us all.

At Alexander Mann Solutions, we are recognizing the value in blending all talent types, whether permanent or contingent, under one approach, and other influential organisations are beginning to do likewise.

The magazine is packed with content and includes contributions from leading business figures, multinational companies and our own global talent acquisition experts.
