Talent management is essential to your company’s future, but sometimes there is nothing more difficult than getting a business leader to take an active role in it. At Kellogg, this was a perennial problem. In this HCI Keynote video, Stephanie Kennedy, Senior Director of Global Talent Management and Acquisition at the Kellogg Company, explains how this global organization is addressing the challenge with dedicated “People Development Committees.” By holding these functional/regional groups of business leaders responsible for key talent outcomes, Kellogg is improving its ability to attract, develop, engage, and retain top talent now and in the future.
- Design and launch your own People Development Committees to ensure talent strategy translates into action.
- Use the perspective and expertise of business leaders to prioritize key roles, deepen your leadership bench, and develop your people more effectively.
- Clearly define the role of People Development Committees to avoid “mission creep,” and to keep those teams focused on areas where they can add the most value.
