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
  • Integrating learning and talent
  • Improving the induction process
  • Helping staff achieve their full potential
  • Improving talent and performance management

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.

Having clear evidence is a vital starting point in identifying where improvement is needed and backing up your business case for change.

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.
