Why (leaky) Pipelines of Talent Matter: Lessons from the Nuclear Industry
We’re used to hearing slogans abound on how ‘people are our greatest asset’, about ‘pipelines of talent’ and how much ‘diversity matters’. But what evidence is there that this makes a positive or tangible difference to the delivery of our projects and their outcomes?
This presentation will discuss case studies from the global nuclear industry, as well as covering some of the latest research on the advantages, and the pitfalls, of harnessing diverse talent for our global project teams.
