Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 7, 2011
Knowledge Infusion, a world-class human resources consulting firm, is pleased to partner with McGraw-Hill at the HCI National Human Capital Summit in Atlanta, March 7-9, to discuss real-world examples of how McGraw-Hill has prepared and deployed a talent management strategy and technology for the future.
Join Knowledge Infusion Co-Founder and President, Heidi Spirgi, and Mary Beth Drake, Vice President of HR Planning & Services for The McGraw-Hill Companies, on Tuesday, March 8 at 3:30 pm at the Omni CNN Center in Atlanta, as they share their insight into why talent management processes and technologies of the past have not met the changing needs of business today.
In this session, attendees will learn how McGraw-Hill is undertaking the massive deployment of a new, integrated talent management strategy that includes process transformation, marketing and branding, cross-functional integration, and technology deployment. Some of the questions that will get answered include:
- What is a talent management strategy and why it is important
- How to select a talent management technology that drives your strategy
- Why old models of technology implementation do not work in the deployment of talent management solutions today
- What to think about before deploying talent management technology
- The importance of a “talent management” brand
- How to gain organizational buy-in to a talent management initiative
- Why talent management needs to be part of an overall HR service delivery strategy
- How talent management must be integrated into an overall HR technology strategy
“I can’t thank Knowledge Infusion enough for the support and expertise throughout this project,” said Veronica Newton, Vice President of HRIS at The McGraw-Hill Companies. “The partnership between KI and McGraw-Hill, including the development of a talent strategy, has elevated the value this project will bring to our corporation.”
“Knowledge Infusion has been instrumental in guiding McGraw-Hill down the path of a truly integrated talent management strategy, both in terms of developing the strategy and then in bringing it to life in our processes, technology and branding” said Mary Beth Drake, Vice President of HR Planning & Services for The McGraw-Hill Companies. “Their experience will be greatly valued in future deployment projects.”
“Congratulations to the McGraw-Hill team as they have successfully reached a huge milestone in the deployment of their talent management strategy,” said Heidi Spirgi, Co-Founder and President of Knowledge Infusion. “They understand that success with talent management technology is not defined as “go-live” but in leveraging the technology to find innovative ways to develop, retain, and deploy key talent across the organization.”
Register today for the HCI National Human Capital Summit and learn where your organization is on the maturity scale of talent management readiness.
