As the need for talent continues to grow and change rapidly in an unpredictable economy, HR practitioners are faced with challenges focused on leadership development and talent management processes to ensure the right leadership capabilities for the present and uncertain future. Organizations worldwide are developing business objectives focused on growth and bolstering both top- and bottom-line performance and it is HR’s responsibility to implement talent strategies that not only support these objectives but are strongly aligned to ensure success.

Participants will explore leading practices to help organizations build talent, processes for aligning a talent strategy to desired business outcomes, and the importance of diagnosing the quality and depth of an organization’s current talent pool and what it will take to remain competitive in the future. This two-day workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills to:

  • Align your talent strategy with the organization’s vision, mission, and goals
  • Identify how to impact the organization’s bottom line by attracting, managing, and engaging talent in today’s business environment
  • Implement innovative talent development practices
