Talent a Top Issue for Fast 50 Companies

Vancouver, November 2015 — Deloitte has announced that 2/3 of its Fast 50 companies listed talent as their first or second most significant issue. External resources, such as those provided by Bannerman Consultants, can be a means for companies to augment their talent. Outsourcing can do much more than cut costs; it can also be a means of accessing higher levels of skill and acumen.

Forbes states that companies that create sustained value routinely use external sources to gain capabilities that they don’t have in-house or to strengthen capabilities that they do have. “When Procter & Gamble outsourced some R&D activities it boosted its innovation productivity by 60%… Today, about half of P&G’s innovation comes from external collaboration.”
