This 90 minute program will offer a roadmap for the professionals working to manage global talent that will lead them to the successful implementation of programs and policies that will support their business efforts.

So many organizations today have either outsources, off- shored, or overseas entities that are a part of their core business effort.  Staffing our businesses becomes the most important part of a Manager’s job. Ensuring that the talented resources from whatever location continue to be accessible to support sustainable and long term business success are essential and complex strategic considerations.

If you are responsible for or managing one or a team of  people  this program will provide you with a process for assessing the organizational needs  for today and for the future.

Assessing the talent at hand as well as bridging the gaps between future needs and current realities will be discussed as well as selection techniques to facilitate making the BEST hires.  It is understood that turnover is costly and can impede progress toward building a sustainable business model and entity.  With the complexity of cross cultures, diversity and human nature affecting the needs and wants of employees, maintaining a strategic management perspective is a challenge.  Establishing a strong vision of the future that can be translated into a talent management strategy is key in meeting both the business and personal needs of the organization and the employees.  It becomes the over-arching challenge, for HR and Business Leadership.

The uncertainty of the global economic environment begs for strong internal measures to insure company viability and sustainability.  The challenges presented by the migration of talent and the growth of the emerging markets as well as the impacts of demographic trends set the stage for dramatic shifts in talent acquisition and management.   It is an established fact that part of the value of an organization is the leadership, depth of leadership and their ability to strategize and lead the organization into a sustainable future.  This cannot happen unless organizations are adequately prepared to manage and support their “talent”  from the hiring stage through the life of their careers and to help them grow personally and professionally along with the company.  Key in this is the retention of company knowledge and history.   Recent survey’s conducted by the Economist and Pricewaterhouse Coopers indicate that C Suite Leadership is most concerned about having the right people in the right place at the right time.  Further they see that attraction and retention of talent will be  an issue that will be at the heart of business success for the next 10 years!
