The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age

    By Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha, Chris Yeh
A "New York Times" Bestseller
Introducing the new, "realistic" loyalty pact between employer and employee.
The employer-employee relationship is broken, and managers face a seemingly impossible dilemma: the old model of guaranteed long-term employment no longer works in a business environment defined by continuous change, but neither does a system in which every employee acts like a free agent.
The solution? Stop thinking of employees as either family or as free agents. Think of them instead as "allies."
As a manager you want your employees to help transform the company for the future. And your employees want the company to help transform their careers for the long term. But this win-win scenario will happen only if both sides trust each other enough to commit to mutual investment and mutual benefit. Sadly, trust in the business world is hovering at an all-time low.
We can rebuild that lost trust with straight talk that recognizes the realities of the modern economy. So, paradoxically, the alliance begins with managers acknowledging that great employees might leave the company, and with employees being honest about their own career aspirations.
By putting this new alliance at the heart of your talent management strategy, you ll not only bring back trust, you ll be able to recruit and retain the entrepreneurial individuals you need to adapt to a fast-changing world.
These individuals, flexible, creative, and with a bias toward action, thrive when they re on a specific tour of duty when they have a mission that s mutually beneficial to employee and company that can be completed in a realistic period of time.
Coauthored by the founder of LinkedIn, this bold but practical guide for managers and executives will give you the tools you need to recruit, manage, and retain the kind of employees who will make your company thrive in today s world of constant innovation and fast-paced change.
Reid Hoffman is an American entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and author who is best known as the cofounder of LinkedIn. Ben Casnocha is a bestselling author and the founder of Comcate, an e-government technology firm. Chris Yeh has been building Internet businesses since 1995. He is a general partner at global venture fund Wasabi Ventures and an active advisor to a wide array of startups.

The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age by Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha, Chris Yeh, Harvard Business Review Press, 193 pages, $25. 00, Hardcover, July 2014, ISBN 9781625275776 As I read The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age, I wondered if I was really the right person to be reviewing this book. In the first few pages, I learn that referring to your company as a “family” isn’t appropriate; and that the assumed employee/employer fidelity founded on a sort of professional monogamy is archaic.
