Impactful Integrated Talent Management

Flexible 2 day session subject to extent of case study and workshop content.

Program Overview

This workshop is built on the best-practice, global truth that any good and powerful Talent Management programme or system is one that is fully integrated from beginning to end and is part of a full-cycle HR process from business planning to strategic HR planning, to recruitment and selection, to on-boarding, to performance management, to skills gap assessments, to learning and development, to Hi-potential identification, to career pathing and succession planning. All should be built on the same foundation and this workshop weaves them all together in one integrated whole.

Working, non-theoretical models and examples of best practice illustrated by real life case studies will be used enabling participants to identify and relate to the elements of best practice that they can incorporate into their own company culture and context.
