11456: Havas Talent Is An Oxymoron.

Adweek interviewed Havas Worldwide President Andrew Benett, who has written a new book—The Talent Mandate—that examines recruiting and managing employees. This explains why Benett is participating in an Advertising Week event on the topic; that is, the panel chat is nothing more than a promotional party. Talent and Havas are two words that should never appear in the same sentence, except when noting how the latter utterly lacks the former. The index of Benett’s book makes reference to diversity—but it’s “diversity of ideas” versus anything to do with inclusive workplaces. Yet that’s to be expected from someone connected to an enterprise fueled by nepotism in an industry rooted in exclusivity and discrimination.
