Rethinking Talent Management

Connecting strategy, performance and potential for tomorrow’s challenges

Archive Talent Management

For most CEOs, talent remains at or near the top of their priority list, and yet lack of talent remains a major obstacle in achieving organisational goals. While a lot of effort is spent tackling these challenges, our CRF survey indicated a lack of satisfaction with the outcomes of talent management practices. Where are organisations going wrong?

Our recent CRF webinar examined how talent management can be better aligned with the needs of the organisation, as well as organisation strategy and purpose. During the 45 minute programme the panel assessed key challenges in talent management today and the steps HR professionals can take to reinvent talent management for the 21st Century.

In Mercer’s recent Global Talent Trends Study, only four percent of HR leaders reported that HR is seen as a strategic partner in their organization. Furthermore, over 80 percent indicated that their talent processes need an overhaul. How did the gulf between what HR intends to be — a strategic partner — and how HR is perceived — an undervalued resource — get so big?

There are several talent trends driving the question around HR’s value. The prevailing HR operating model, and how organizations have implemented it, also brings challenges. This paper examines these issues and provides Mercer’s view on what HR can do to redefine its value in today’s evolving talent economy.

Your first 100 days as the new Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) provides a window of opportunity to build a solid foundation for long-term success. It’s a time to gain the confidence of the CEO, the executive team and those in the HR function, and to secure an in-depth understanding of your new environment. This is a unique opportunity…one you will never have the chance to do over. How can you make the most of it? This paper by Mercer looks at the areas you should focus and the aims you should strive to achieve.

Having a diverse representation of talent in the organisation isn’t the goal. Instead, when diverse talent feels included, valued and a core part of the team without having to become like the ‘norm’, then organisations see substantive gains in creativity, engagement and productivity. But how can we create an inclusive culture that supports diversity and productivity?
