Hi, TheyCallMeElisa, and welcome to the G.E,

"We assisted a Brazilian IT multinational in their market entry strategy by providing them with a tailor-made & culture-based roadmap to hiring and retaining talent in Portugal"

I have doubts about "roadmap to hiring and retaining talent".

Can you help?

Thanks!



Elisa

I'd change 'in their market entry strategy' to 'with their market entry strategy'. Also, I'd change 'to hiring and retaining talent' to 'to hire and retain the talented'.

Hello, Elisa, and welcome to GE.

I agree with Ahmed that "with" may be better than "in," though "in" also works in my opinion.

As regards "talent," Ahmed, I've heard and seen it used to mean "talented people." LDOCE says:

2 [uncountable] a person or people with a natural ability or skill

I think "talent" works better there than "the talented" because the latter sounds like "only those who are talented," while "talent" is a wider concept.

Thanks a lot. I changed it because I am not used to this meaning of 'talent'.
