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
