Newton, MA (PRWEB) April 6, 2006
Before talent management can deliver on its promise of business value, senior managers need to view it as an organizational priority and align it with their business strategies. That’s the premise behind “Hiring & Retaining Top Talent in a Constantly Changing World,” an upcoming presentation by Nicole M. Stata, President and CEO of Deploy Solutions, an enterprise talent management solutions provider. The presentation will take place at next week’s International Association for Human Resource Information Management (IHRIM) 2006 Conference and Exposition in Washington, DC.
Stata’s conference session on Monday, April 10, from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m., notes that while the challenges that continually plague HR professionals – finding, attracting, and keeping the best people – have remained constant over the years, conditions in today’s workforce have changed. Rising healthcare costs, a shortened product lifecycle, a retiring workforce, and compliance issues are all key factors that affect a corporation and its business strategy. In response, the presentation will illustrate how to improve recruiting and hiring practices, an approach which encompasses job definitions and requirements, sourcing, screening and assessment, and the onboarding process.
Additionally, a recent McKinsey Quarterly survey of CEOs, business leaders and HR professionals across 29 countries found that talent management overall is not viewed by senior management as an organizational priority, and that managers don’t commit the necessary time to talent management programs. Stata’s presentation will address these findings by explaining the dangers of underestimating employee culture and examining the critical need to align talent management strategies with business strategies. She will also discuss ways to improve and align compensation and incentives.
The IHRIM Conference begins Sunday, April 9, and continues through Wednesday, April 12 at the Hilton Hotel in Washington, DC. More information can be found at http://www.ihrim.org/events/2006spring/index.asp.
