The PwC 2020 survey of CEO’s found that of their top concerns for the future, besides addressing the present economic uncertainty, is how to develop the skills and capabilities their workforce will need and how to leverage technology to help them become more competitive. CEO’s want talent that is agile, creative and resilient, these skills are crucial to help companies address the ever changing challenges they face. This can be the difference between success and failure.
Talent Management has never been as important as it is now. It has always been a concern of CEO’s but more so now as companies face such uncertainty. The need to get the right talent with the right mix of skills, knowledge and capabilities can be the difference between success and failure.
This course will outline what you can do to ensure you select, develop and manage the key talent your business requires. It will demonstrate how to develop a Talent management strategy and how to apply various tactics to ensure you attract, develop and retain the employees your business needs. Now is the time to get management and CEO’s more directly involved in the talent management process, so HR needs to demystify the process, show the potential financial impact of a good talent management and gain buy-in and commitment from management, to ensure its success.
