Talent Trap?

Niladri Roy feels that the growth of the KPO industry without adequate thought to career planning and development might open doors to a talent trap.

So where does all of this leave us , assuming that hiring bright minds for KPO jobs is a reality and the immediacy of financial pressures will make it difficult for the employers to recognize the long term ramifications of this hiring ….. the only solution lies in a structured process of Talent Development (not a fancy word , it's different from simply training ) , so that the careers and the abilities of these young people are not eroded over time ….what do you think ?

Well, I think that traditional career planning and development is dead. So the only thing one can do is prepare your best people and hope they stay. It's no rocket science, but it's harder to get it to work.
