In-Focus: Talent Optimisation (2014)

Sep 8, 2014 | Featured, In-Focus Reports

Nine tips for optimising talent in your organisation.

This In-Focus report shares nine tips for optimising talent in your organisation.

It’s clear that talent is at the top of many of today’s business leaders – how to attract, develop and keep the best people in our businesses is critical for success.

This new In-Focus report from Towards Maturity, sponsored by our Ambassador Infor, provides new insights from top learning companies from the Towards Maturity Benchmark to help organisations optimise talent. It also highlights the leading role that L&D professionals can take in this process.

‘Whereas Talent Management traditionally collects information about employees’ competencies and turns that into learning and staffing plans, Talent Optimisation takes a holistic view of the individual and makes that data available for them to use themselves, enabling each to do their job better’.  Tarik Taman, Infor HCM General Manager

It is clear that Learning and development professionals are looking beyond the delivery of formal, HR-led learning to supporting the wider talent agenda, but this study shows that, to date, they are having limited success. 91% of L&D leaders want to increase talent/performance management, but only 17% are achieving this.

 

Download the report below for nine practical ideas to help you optimise talent in your organisation:

  • Engaging new types of learners
  • Increasing learning access and flexibility
  • Improving the relevance of HR-led learning
  • Creating a culture of learning
  • Speeding up the application of learning
  • Supporting day-to-day performance
  • Increasing the sharing of good practice

Towards Maturity continuously surveys and studies how people learn at work and the impact this has on organisational performance. By turning data into insights and insights into action, this research is used to help L&D leaders assess and improve the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of their learning provision.

The Towards Maturity Journey: River Island

We always talk about the benefits of undergoing Towards Maturity’s Learning Health Check and using statistics to emphasise the effects of benchmarking, but what does its real impact look like on a business?

Case Study: Best Learning Technologies Project 2018 (UK commercial Sector)

In 2018, 93% of learning practitioners wanted to increase employee engagement with learning, but only 27% were successful. With less than a third meeting this goal, it is important to explore how an exemplar organisation turned their learning strategy on its head to achieve just that.

In a world in which the nature of work, the workplace and workforce are changing at a relentless pace, organisations must respond to change. In the context of such rapid change Learning and Development (L&D) functions play a vital role. The transformation of organisations demands the transformation of L&D practitioners, however many L&D teams are struggling to change.
