Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Competing on Talent in Today’s Business World: A Blueprint for New Ways of Hiring by Pradeep Sahay.

It is currently an exciting time for organizations with regard to the recruitment of talent. The business and organizational pressures for finding and hiring the best people could not be greater. Recruitment has not changed as a process – a vacancy still needs a suitable hire. However, the landscape, tools, technologies, behaviors and expectations regarding how an organization approaches sourcing and acquiring talent are changing rapidly. This book chronicles one organization’s journey as it goes about re-orienting the focus of its talent acquisition capability from the current reactive process to a strategic and proactive program capable of consistently sourcing and recruiting the very best people available. Forward-looking companies are seizing this opportunity to create a true competitive advantage in talent sourcing and acquisition. They are focusing on fine-tuning the fundamentals, while devoting increased time and planning to the more strategic areas of talent acquisition, including workforce planning and strategic sourcing. Their best-in-class approaches elevate recruitment from a transactional, short-term focused activity to a strategic, integrated, long-term approach that optimizes their investments in people.

Book Announcement: The Single European Market and Trade Policy

The Single European Market and Trade Policy now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing

9781443879026
Hardback, pp290, £61.99 / $105.95

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of The Single European Market and Trade Policy, edited by Angelo Santagostino.

The single market and trade policy are Europe’s major economic achievements and its best assets in times of increasing globalisation. European integration, as well as any other regional integration, is impossible without these two policies, which are a good example of how to implement a positive form of globalisation. They represent an engine for growth and building a more competitive EU economy. The single market and trade policy, by allowing people, goods, services and capital to move more freely through both Member States and the world, open up new opportunities for citizens, workers, businesses and consumers, creating the jobs and growth Europe so urgently needs. This collection of essays addresses the various facets of these two pillars of European integration. A more efficient single market creates the conditions for a more open trade policy, and vice-versa. Growth has been lacking in Europe in recent years, and enhancing these two assets is the most fruitful way to find it again. Continue reading
