The problem isn’t that their current employers don’t have opportunities for them, however; it’s that few companies understand their talent well enough to effectively deploy individuals into the right jobs at the right time.
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) August 9, 2006
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and Plateau, a leading provider of software for developing, managing, and optimizing organizational skills and talent, announced today that Plateau will sponsor HCI’s Developing and Optimizing Talent learning and research track. The track is one of several topics addressed in HCI’s Talent Leadership community of interest, a community HCI considers critical to organizations working to build competitive advantage.
Both Plateau and HCI realize that when leaders ensure that planning and developing talent are aligned with corporate priorities, employee productivity and passion for work increases, resulting in reduced turnover and recruitment costs and greater competitive advantage.
“A major complaint among employees today is that their skills and talents are underutilized. As they experience barriers to mobility and opportunities within their companies, they believe they have no choice but to look elsewhere,” said Allan Schweyer, HCI’s Executive Director. “The problem isn’t that their current employers don’t have opportunities for them, however; it’s that few companies understand their talent well enough to effectively deploy individuals into the right jobs at the right time.”
The Developing and Optimizing Talent track focuses on maximizing human capital potential and motivation by aligning work with talents, ambitions, and passions. A panel of expert advisors explores next practices and initiatives in talent development, management, and optimization in market-leading companies, and examines how these actions affect competitive success. Webcasts, white papers, education, and other resources provide human capital professionals with information they need to optimize their organizations’ talent.
“For a company to succeed in today’s highly competitive business environment, developing and optimizing employee talent must be a priority,” said Paul Sparta, Chairman & CEO of Plateau. “Plateau is committed to helping organizations actualize and maximize their talent by ensuring that learning and training are linked with performance and career and succession planning. By supporting the Human Capital Institute’s efforts in this area, we hope to expand awareness around the benefits of adopting a holistic approach to talent management.”
