Above are seven initiatives that are designed to help talent flourish. We do not expect this to be a complete list, but we hope that they provide a platform for an ongoing discussion. If you have a comment specific to one of the seven initiatives, or would like to share your thoughts, observations and ideas for new initiatives please email us at talentnz@mcguinnessinstitute.org. Together we can provide more clarity over what works and what does not. The below quotes are from kiwis interviewed in the 2013 TalentNZ Journal.

‘Talent does attract talent, and talent wants to live in places where it is exciting, where they are challenged and stimulated in many different ways.’
– Andrew Coy

‘A big part of acquisition is not just of customers, but of talent.’
– Rod Drury

‘Immigration policy is key; we cannot build the scale ourselves because we don’t have enough people.’
– Raf Manji
