Building Better Talent Faster - Aligning Your Human Capital Plan with the overall Business Strategy- Transitioning to Business Driven HR

The practice of talent management is more important in today’s economy than it has ever been.Leaders are asked to do more with fewer resources. Seventy-five million Millennials are entering the workforce and they are changing jobs more frequently than previous generations. Organizations are experiencing for the first time in history four generations in the workforce and leaders are not prepared or trained to motivate, train, and develop an incredibly diverse workforce.   In the new millennium the only unique asset that many companies have to maintain a competitive edge is their people. In the global market place and every industry around the world the difference between success and failure is talent plain and simple.   Research data clearly supports that there is a direct relationship between executing superior talent practices and improved financial performance.This is a critical time for HR professionals to be open to change. The opportunities to make a difference and truly impact their organizations have never been greater.

Turning 'Theory' into 'Practice'?

To achieve organizational goals, you must synchronize your business strategy and human capital strategy.  Otherwise, talent becomes disconnected from the focus and direction of the organization. But it’s not always easy.  Participants will learn the key components that align business strategy with human capital strategy and how to incorporate these techniques into their own organizations.
