Talent Dimensions was formed in 2018 but was born from over 40 years of experience in employee engagement, retention and career development. Founded by Lynn Cowart and Cile Johnson, Talent Dimensions acquired Career Systems International from its founder and bestselling and award winning author, Dr. Beverly Kaye and immediately began work to answer the question it gets from almost every client, “What comes next?”

‘What comes next’ is a commitment to providing the same award-winning programs clients have come to know so well through Career Systems as well as the broadening of our horizons to focus more specifically on the strategies for retaining employees and minimizing turnover to propel organizations to new levels of performance through their people.

We do all this by offering the most innovative, practical and application-rich solutions in the areas of strategic retention, engagement, career development, leadership development, employee branding, leverage role identification and development, and inclusive work environments.
