Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 18, 2006
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a professional association and global educator in talent management strategies, announced today they have joined forces with Taleo, a leading provider of talent management solutions, to deliver Global Talent Management research and education to the market. Taleo will sponsor HCI's Global Talent Management learning and research track. The track is one of several topics addressed in HCI's Talent Strategy community of interest, a community HCI considers critical to organizations working to build competitive advantage.
"Global Talent Management is an essential track in HCI's Talent Strategy community," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's Executive Director. "We're extremely pleased that Taleo, a leader in talent management solutions, has joined in HCI's efforts to address the challenges organizations face as they attempt to streamline and integrate the many processes associated with managing global talent."
Multinational organizations are navigating a complex landscape as they attempt to manage global talent. Recruitment, internal deployment, and retention efforts must all be coordinated. Meanwhile, language considerations, cultural differences, monetary and tax considerations, and international laws, among other issues, must be addressed. Most multinationals use a wide variety of technologies across their operations and are increasingly seeking ways to standardize and streamline these technologies to improve overall business performance and talent management operations.
The Thought Leader panel focuses on the many facets of global talent management, including technological integration, drawing on case studies and research to illustrate common difficulties and share successful strategies. Panelists include Karen Beaman, Vice President and Chief HCM Strategist for Workday; Lori Blackman, President and Founder of DNL Global; Gerard Brossard, Vice President of HR, Global Staffing and Workforce Management for Hewlett-Packard; Kent Kirch, Global Director of Recruitment for Deloitte; Yves Lermusiaux, President and Founder of Taleo Research; Madeline Poulton, Group Resourcing Director for Serono; Paul Sparrow, Professor of International Human Resource Management and Director of Executive Education at the Manchester Business School; and Jon Walker, Director of HRIT for Dow Chemical.
"Corporate success is directly linked to an organization's ability to effectively implement a global talent management strategy," said Jeff Carr, EVP Americas Sales and Global Marketing, Taleo. "Through its efforts, HCI has established itself as a leader in the human capital arena. We readily continue our support to further arm global organizations with useful information and best practices to ensure that talent continues to drive successful business results."
Panel discussions and research result in a series of four webcasts and white papers, as well as other next-generation resources aimed at providing human capital professionals with the information and tools needed to effectively manage talent worldwide. Webcasts are complimentary and open to the public, beginning with the first in the Global Talent series on March 28th.
