Review:

The title of the book The Magnetic Organization: Attracting and Retaining the Best Talent obviously grabbed my attention, as its theme is of contemporary relevance. Dr Bhattacharyya, a professor in Xavier University, Bhubaneswar, is a renowned scholar and a passionate teacher. This book encompasses a unique blend of theory and virtual applications to study organizational dynamics, embedded with strategic plans to accomplish talent management for effective acquisition and retention of talent in organizations. I strongly believe this book will serve as a guide to the manifold challenges of an organization toward achieving the status of "The Magnetic Employer." I wish the book all success.--Fr. Antony Uvari

I greatly value this book from two standpoints: First attracting and retaining the best talent is one of the biggest challenges for organizations. Professor Bhattacharyya has vividly emphasized the value of talent, developing talent and retaining the talent. He has also gone into many well-known theories and concepts related to talent development. In the process, he also suggested various strategies to develop and retain talent. Second, the book will be very useful to Human Resource professionals, researchers, and organizations in their recruitment and further in developing and retaining talent.--Dr Raj Agrawal

The Magnetic Organization: Attracting and Retaining the Best Talent written by Professor Dipak Kumar Bhattacharyya, a well-acclaimed name in the field of human resource management, is for the HR practitioner who is seeking a "go-to," "how-to" book on attracting and retaining winners. Based on sound theoretical principles, with industry examples and step-by-step action plans, it will be an invaluable aid to any manager who wants to emerge as a winner in today's "war for talent."--Snigdha Pattnaik "Dean, Xavier School of HRM, Xavier University, Bhubaneswar "

The most successful companies now practice talent management to maintain their competitive advantage. Professor Dipak Kumar Bhattacharyya's new book has captured strategies and proven practices to build a world class workforce.

--Howard Risher

Ever since the phrase "War for Talent" became a part of the HR manager's dictionary, there have been numerous seminars and discussions on the topic. However, I think for the first time Professor Dipak Bhattacharyya has succeeded in providing a comprehensive road map to win the war! His concept of an employer as a talent magnet captures very succinctly today's needs of organizations visA- vis talent management. This book will be helpful to all those with a serious interest in talent management.

With the fierce competitions and economics difficulties, it becomes more and more important for organizations to build knowledge assets as quickly and flexibly as possible. One solution before organizations is becoming "talent magnets." This book tackles the gap between established theories and practices on talent management and provides step-by-step action plans to talent acquisition and retaining through in-house capabilities. The author in his book The Magnetic Organization: Attracting and Retaining the Best Talent simplifies and synthesizes issues, including controversial ones and provides new insights on talent management. The author's approach makes the book suitable for talent management courses as well as a self-guide for organization's managers.--Latif Al-Hakim
