The Center for Talent Innovation (CTI), a non-profit think tank, has a long history of focusing on challenges and issues in the workplace. CTI's mission is two-fold: to drive ground-breaking research that leverages talent across the divides of gender, generation, geography, and culture; and to create a community of senior executives united by an understanding that full utilization of the global talent pool is at the heart of competitive success. Their flagship project is the Task Force for Talent Innovation, founded in February 2014. Its mission is to respond to the challenges posed by the research and create action and impact. To date, the Task Force has spearheaded 200-plus new best practices, many of which are ?second-generational? and go beyond access and opportunity to retention and acceleration. This action on the ground has garnered significant attention (12 Harvard Business Review studies and articles in the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, Strategy & Business, and Huffington Post), which allows Task Force members to be branded as ?thought leaders? in global talent management. The Task Force is comprised of more than 75 global corporations and organizations representing nearly 6 million employees in 192 countries.
