While change is the single constant in workplaces and workforces, high-performing organizations share at least one commonality: they have retooled their approach to talent management to ensure efficiency, effectiveness and business alignment of talent processes with business goals.

As reported by executives and other business leaders in our recent talent management survey, only 33% of organizations said they had candidates ready to fill key positions, and worse yet, 94% of organizations indicated their talent management was ineffective, inhibiting business growth and performance. 

To help organizations leverage talent to achieve business goals and sustain a competitive position in today’s volatile market, please join us in this intensive, “roll up your sleeves” session. This 3-hour working session, an abbreviated version of our fuller 2-day immersion, is a tell-me and show-me-how experience led by Brandon Hall Group’s most experienced and published Talent Management practitioners and consultants.

Participants will gain leading practice talent management insights and utilize user-friendly online tools to create initial action plans for migration of current talent management to higher impact. Session members will leave with:

  • A thorough understanding of integrated talent management.
  • Leading talent management practice information implemented at high-performing organizations.
  • Frameworks for guiding talent management decisions.
  • Insights regarding the current state of talent management in their organizations.
  • A short-list of “take action now” priorities to improve the overall impact of talent management in their organization.

Organizations need to expand their learning, talent management and HR systems to keep up with the rapid and ever-changing demands of the business. Unfortunately, close to half of organizations surveyed by Brandon Hall Group are unhappy with one or more of these systems and want to make a change. This highly interactive working session, an abbreviated version of Brandon Hall Group’s 2-day immersion workshop, is focused on developing the proper approach for selecting the “right” system for your organization. Led by Michael Rochelle, who has led hundreds of organizations through successful technology selections, you will focus on the critical success factors for choosing a system that meets your needs. In addition to being provided a strategic overview of the HCM solution provider landscape, you’ll learn how to:

  • Build executive and key stakeholder support for selecting a system
  • Align your system requirements with your HCM strategy
  • Identify and prioritize system requirements
  • Build impactful use cases
  • Prepare for meeting with solution providers
  • Make your final decision for a system
  • Prepare the organization for the new system
