Today, more than ever, talent management professionals are expected to partner with business leaders on human capital and talent development engagements that impact company sustainability. Functional expertise and operational excellence alone are no longer enough. Managing and impacting human capital is more than posting a new training workshop on an internal website and focusing on cost per program. Whether a department of one or many, what the ongoing evolution of talent management practices requires is a strategic, consultative business focused approach.
In this progressive thinking one-hour session, hear about, think on and develop ideas for what to do and how to begin to develop a plan on the evolutionary trends impacting talent management. Our focus will be on discussing the trends, consequences and impacts of five categorical areas of practice changes. Those practice changes inclusive in the newest life-cycle focused talent management approach include:
- The Gig Employee & Talent Hiring Implications
- “InGAGEity”: Beyond Diversity & Inclusion to Engagement
- Moving to Agile and Adaptable Function Practices
- The Best Culture Wins
- To Do My Best Every Day!
