An" A Player” with the right competencies and experience delivers 400% more productivity than the average performer if engaged and hired effectively.

The Harvard Business School Association of Boston will host top leaders and over 100 C-Suite executives and Talent Management executives to discuss the power of talent. The event titled: The Power of an “A Player:” How Top Talent Can Transform Your Bottom Line will take place on October 26, 2017 at 5:30pm at The Harvard Club, downtown Boston.

The power of talent is transformative when harnessed effectively. The influence of one top performer (or bad hire) sends ripples through an organization that can seriously impact a bottom line. In fact, one “A Player” with the right competencies and experience delivers 400% more productivity than the average performer if engaged and hired effectively. However, most managers have a low success rate when it comes to finding and retaining the people who can create the best results for their teams. 

Moderated by Colin Kingsbury, President and Co-Founder of ClearCompany Talent Management Software, the panelists include:

  • Debbie Lovich: Partner and Managing Director, Boston Consulting Group
  • John Dick: Vice President, Marketing, HubSpot
  • Steven Kosakow: Talent Acquisition Director, Boston Logic Technology Partners, Inc.
  • Tali Rabin: Senior Vice President, Human Resources, CGS

The panel will focus on key questions, including: 

  • What difference does an “A Player” really make?
  • How can organizations ensure they are hiring the right people to accomplish their corporate mission/vision? 
  • Is it possible to eradicate the standard performance bell curve to hire and retain more top talent?
  • How can managers increase engagement among key roles and top talent

With over 40 events a year, the Harvard Business School Association of Boston is elated to host top leaders in the talent and organizational leadership arena for this event. “Talent has become a major narrative in the success and growth of companies coupled with employee culture,” stated Jon A. Shipp, President of Harvard Business School Associations of Boston.
