Leading through unprecedented times [3 November 2008]

In times of economic distress, it becomes even more critical for organizations to optimize their workforces, use the right engagement and development strategies with employees and make the best human capital investments. An effective, efficient, engaged workforce is your single greatest competitive advantage when trying to meet the enormous challenges posed by today's economic circumstances.

These are unprecedented times. Times that will test the resolve and commitment of employers and employees worldwide. Times that will test the fundamentals of pension funds and retirement programs, and our notions of how we provide and care for an aging society. Times that will test whether or not organizations are equipped to deal with the profound, long-term changes in the world economic market.

In the brief podcasts below, Mercer experts share their insights and advice for dealing with some of the most urgent human capital, organizational and investment issues raised by the current financial crisis. Listen here or download the MP3s to your computer to listen to later.
