Gregory Karanastasis, Senior Director, Global Talent Acquisition & Internal Mobility, McGraw Hill Financial and Suzan Dushaj, Senior Talent Manager, Internal Mobility, McGraw Hill Financial
From 2011 to 2013, The McGraw-Hill Companies transformed its business from a publisher and information provider to a leader in credit ratings, benchmarks, and analytics for the global capital and commodity markets. With the sale of McGraw-Hill Education, the remaining businesses created better talent energy however, one of the key business challenges they faced was the movement of internal talent within a business hierarchy, business to business, function to function and across regions. In 2011, they were buying talent four out of five times when a position became available; it became clear that a deliberate and execution focused solution to this business challenge was needed.
This session will share how McGraw Hill Financial met their talent challenge by forming a dedicated Global Internal Mobility team that focused solely on identifying and moving talent within the organization, how the group married a targeted recruiting approach with a talent management component, and how they put together a strategic approach to internal recruiting that focused on seven critical components.
