Internal Audit Talent Management

We’ve all seen that one company that has an audit position posted, it disappears for a few months, then it’s back again. LinkedIn and other job boards are filled with thousands of auditing jobs.

Finding the right audit talent is difficult.

But realistically, we can only blame ourselves.

We have problems explaining to our friends and family what we do. Now imagine trying to define our needs in writing, place an appropriate job description, screen personnel and hire the right person that is a good fit for our organization.

The biggest problem is the lack of a comprehensive talent management process.

In this session, we’ll

  • Define and discuss talent management
  • Explore different strategies
  • Learn how to attract, develop and retain talent
