Presented by: David Forman, Chief Learning Officer, Human Capital Institute (HCI)
Something isn’t quite right. The engine is running rougher than it should. There is no question that the field of talent management has enjoyed a significant decade. An abundance of research, articles, books and thought leaders have applauded the benefits of organizations that focus on the core talent management functions of hiring, engaging, developing and retaining their talent. The rise of intangibles in market valuation has certainly elevated the importance of talent management to the Board room, the investment community and beyond. But this is not enough, especially in times of rapid change, the constant drive to innovate, and increasing global pressures. Even as our environment changes, there is a strong tendency to use old tools, mindsets and methods to solve new problems.
Our businesses have had to adapt and change to different market demands and pressures. If not, they would perish. It seems as if internal processes such as talent management are under no such crucible. Convention is all too often accepted and not challenged; and the result is a series of practices that are out of alignment and often out dated.
In this session participants will:
• Understand the reasons why external-facing parts of the organization change faster than internal practices
• Describe five new avenues for talent management to be more effective and better aligned in the future
• Begin to challenge conventions on a regular basis
