The growing global economy has strengthened the need for effective leadership at all levels. Baby boomer retirements, recession-driven downsizing and the demand for a highly skilled workforce are fueling a war for talent, in which the organizations with the best workforces win. As a result, companies increasingly recognize the value of identifying, developing and retaining high-potential employees. During "Using Assessments to Help Identify and Develop High-Potential Employees," Gerry Groe, Ph.D., managing director of Business Development for TALX assessment division, pan, will explain how assessments can be used to predict leadership effectiveness and guide individual development plans.
Participants of this session will learn how to select assessments that facilitate the identification and development of high-potentials as well as gain an understanding of how assessment results can be used to drive individual development planning. Attendees of this session are eligible for one general PHR, SPHR or GPHR recertification credit.
