Closing the Capability Gap: Strategic Human Capital Management

This three-hour workshop will provide government HR executives and managers with a new way of thinking about strategic human capital management in the face of mounting pressures to attract and retain talent. Leveraging lessons from research and hands-on experience on “High-Performance Bureaucracy,” this workshop will provide practical tips and tools on how to develop insights into future human capital needs and effectively define and realize the organization’s talent management goals.  Oftentimes talent management strategy is ring-fenced from the larger discussion of organization priorities and strategy, creating a disjointed dynamic. Complaints such as not having the right talent, high performer retention and failure to execute a clearly defined mission seem overwhelming. In this workshop, leaders will learn how to:

  • Integrate the strategic, execution and talent imperatives
  • Strike the right balance in delivering for the needs of the organization today, while preparing for the future
  • Articulate and define the value proposition for current (retention) and future (attraction) employees

Learning the skills above will enable the organization to develop a human capital strategy and attract and develop the right people to successfully achieve organizational goals.  In these times of fiscal austerity, an integrated human capital strategy will enable organizations to effectively “do more with less.”  In the workshop, breakout groups will discuss how to apply these best practices to their own organization.
