Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) April 14, 2006
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and DBM, a global human capital and transitions management firm, today announced DBM's sponsorship of HCI's Talent and Career Transition Management learning and research track. The track is one of several topics addressed in HCI's Talent Development community of interest, a community HCI considers critical to organizations working to leverage human capital.
Today's dynamic marketplace demands that organizations react quickly to competitive forces, new markets, and financial volatility. This can result in a variety of organizational transitions, including mergers, acquisitions, restructurings, promotions, downsizings, and role changes within the workforce.
"The dependency of organizations on the engagement and productivity of its workforce makes attention to human capital during organizational change a critical priority," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's Executive Director.
HCI and DBM recognize that organizations in transition face the dual challenge of addressing the needs of exiting employees while simultaneously continuing to inspire high performance among those who remain. Motivating and aligning employees with an organization's business goals is a complex and uncertain process that can overwhelm even the most experienced leaders.
The Talent and Career Transition Management track focuses on successfully managing the career transitions of individuals leaving the organization and employees who remain to ensure minimized disruption, accelerated recovery, as well as contribution to competitive advantage. A panel of expert advisors will examine methods, trends, and best practices in talent and career transition management. Webcasts, white papers, education, and other resources provide human capital professionals with information they need to manage human capital during organizational transition.
"As a global leader in helping organizations effectively manage a wide array of transitions, DBM regularly works with human capital professionals as they struggle with the long-term and near-term impact of such transitions on the workforce," said Jack Gavin, Chief Executive Officer and President of DBM. "DBM is pleased to be sponsoring this HCI learning opportunity, a venture designed to help HR practitioners become more strategic partners with the business."
