Brandon Hall Group Releases Business Impact Model for Talent Management

Share Article

High-Performance Talent Management: Measuring Business Impact, identifies four levels of talent management maturity and shows how to build integrated processes to increase the impact of talent management on the business.

Brandon Hall Group, the leading independent research/analyst firm in Learning and Development, Talent Management and Human Resources, today released a white paper that details how to leverage talent management to drive business results.

Researched and written by Laci Loew, Vice President of the Talent Management Practice and Principal Analyst, High-Performance Talent Management: Measuring Business Impact defines business impact and describes four levels of talent management maturity. It offers recommendations on how to build integrated talent processes to increase the impact of talent management on the business. And finally, it includes a diagnostic tool that enables organizations to self-assess their current level of TM maturity.

"Accomplishing accelerated levels of business results means mobilizing talent, leveraging technology, and creating a high-performance culture. Any one of the three is not easy; taken together, the challenge at time seems insoluble,” Loew said. “Yet, high performing companies meet the challenge head-on and emerge as winners. Upon examination, at least part of their winning formula involves a strategy that clearly defines current performance, desired performance, and an explicit plan for closing gaps between the two.”

“That plan is often oriented around a prescribed model for fast-tracking performance — we call it an Integrated Talent Management (ITM) Impact Model,” Loew continued. “Our ITM Impact Model describes how to manage talent holistically and as a critical business function, not just a collection of connected processes, or worst yet, disparate processes. In so doing, our model serves as the blueprint for high-performing organizations and others keen to understand how to create and implement an efficient, effective, and business-aligned talent strategy to drive a preferred competitive position and sustainable business performance."

Mike Cooke, CEO of Brandon Hall Group, said, “This is a stellar piece of work that further defines Brandon Hall Group’s perspective on high-performance talent management and is another example of how we empower excellence in organizations.”

This white paper is the second major Talent Management release of 2014 for Brandon Hall Group, which earlier released Global Talent 2014: The Top 10 Talent Risks, a collaboration with KPMG International that captures a unique picture of talent-related risk across the world’s public and private sectors. More than 1,200 human resources, talent, learning and business executives -- based across 54 developed and developing countries – responded to the talent risk survey.
