Devising Effective Strategies for Recruiting, Training, and Developing your Talent Pool
This is a 200 series program in the Human Resources stream, worth 2 credits.
Organizations are struggling to find a strategy to counter a series of challenges undermining their core strengths. There is fierce competition for skilled workers, the impending retirement of baby boomers, and low levels of employee engagement. The strategy to face these challenges is talent management, a whole-organization approach to attracting and developing highly skilled employees. Talent management is driven by the need to build a high-performance corporate environment, because at the root of high-performing organizations lie talented employees who produce inspiring solutions and services.
Using a talent management strategy, you can identify the right mix of individuals, plug gaps, and keep the pipeline filled with skilled and motivated workers all aligned with corporate goals. This new program from Canada's people management development specialists will give you a roadmap to building an effective talent management strategy that will turn a potential vulnerability into a competitive edge.
Participate in max-mix discussions that offer the opportunity to test your assumptions about what can be done within your own organization.
Receive practical tools and approaches that are easy to take back to the workplace and implement at both the team and organizational levels.
This program has been designed for human resources and organization development professionals and internal consultants with a strategic mindset, who have a role in developing a talent management strategy.
