Middle market companies tend to be reactionary in their talent-planning efforts, but a new report shows the impact of setting up a talent game plan

Middle market companies, not unlike small and large businesses, want the very best employees.

Despite the obvious importance of getting strong candidates on their teams, less than half of middle market firms are currently implementing talent-planning strategies.

new report from the National Center for the Middle Marketoutlines the impact of having a solid talent-planning strategy.
