Even with accelerated spending in the Human Capital Management space and C-level visibility and support at many firms, few have achieved a fully integrated, business-objective-driven HCM strategy.

Companies throughout the world have long acknowledged that people are the most important – and expensive - asset for their organizations. Companies trying to manage these resources effectively amid an uncertain economic climate, rapid skills obsolescence and high turnover are facing tremendous process and technology challenges. According to industry analysts at Forrester, "Even with accelerated spending in the Human Capital Management space and C-level visibility and support at many firms, few have achieved a fully integrated, business-objective-driven HCM strategy."1 To succeed, firms must be ready and willing to embrace a more deliberate and strategic approach to optimizing their organization's talent.

During this one-hour webinar, Thomas will explore the Best Practices Framework for Human Capital Management as outlined in Forrester's recently published research: Improve Strategic HCM Processes and Technologies. The framework will help attendees identify areas where their talent management strategies, processes, and technologies need to mature in order to meet business objectives. Additionally, Gullotti will share a competency-based approach for analyzing current and desired workforce competencies as well as talent management profiles as the starting point for a solid talent management strategy. The approach is based on Plateau's recently published white paper: Talent Management – A Competency-based Approach to Developing Smart Strategies and Systems.

The webinar will help organizations assess their ideal talent management strategy and determine next steps by providing attendees with a framework for:

Understanding your organization's talent management maturity level Defining and comparing the organization's desired state with its current state in terms of skills, knowledge, behaviors, performance and metrics Establishing a short-term and long-term transformation roadmap Recalibrating your efforts on an ongoing basis to ensure processes and technologies are aligned with business goals WHO:
