PRWEB) August 10, 2005 -- According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), it is estimated by in the next ten years, about 22 million new wage and salary jobs will be created in the next decade, while only 17 million employees will be entering the workforce. "The ability of an organization to attract, hire, and more importantly, retain the top talent in a limited talent pool will be the key to success," says business professional Eva Jenkins.
A visionary entrepreneur based in the nation's capital, Jenkins is the driving force behind VIP Staffing and VIP Innovations. Jenkins is also co-author of the soon-to-be-released Conversations on Success, a new book featuring up-close-and-personal interviews with 19 business leaders. Each interview focuses on a different entrepreneur with a unique perspective and a personal story.
"Today's business leaders are truly entering a 'new world' where success is elusive and failure to be inflexible can be fatal," she says. Conversations on Success offers the been-there-and-done-that strategies and insights of people who are "effectively navigating their way through the changing landscape."
Jenkins notes that the book itself reflects the changes that have occurred across the corporate landscape. "In the 20th Century, success books focused exclusively on making a business grow. But Conversations on Success recognizes that we're redefining the word 'success' to include personal satisfaction and fulfillment." She points to sections of the book that focus on topics including mentoring and life coaching, but adds, "I have a somewhat more 'hard-core' business orientation," she says. "The idea that 'business is business' was hard-wired into me years ago." This, she explains, is the reason she decided to devote her interview to the importance of human capital management.
"I believe that dramatic changes on the business side demand a new approach to evolving organizational structures and information flow paths. At the same time, new workers and veterans, alike, are rethinking their career paths in light of those changes.
Conversations on Success is scheduled for release in early September 2005 and will be available on amazon.com
