Transforming Talent in the Modern Workforce

15 Minute Read Transforming Talent in the Modern Workforce Changes in the world of work, evolving employee expectations and advances in technology are creating a perfect storm that is transforming the modern workforce and the modern workplace. Pitched against a backdrop of growing skills gaps, the pressures for organisations to rethink their talent approach – and systems – is intense. So, how prepared are organisations for the modern workforce? And how prepared is their talent management agenda for this fast-moving world? The answer appears to be that they are not. Whilst some areas like performance and appraisal appear to be more mature and advanced, the areas that are frequently cited as being most important to the modern workforce and the brand proposition that attracts and retains the best workers, are not. For many it’s a lack of innovation or adoption of next generation technologies to properly support talent. But often the issue is more fundamental; organisational denial that there is even a need to respond to changing demographics and demands. And whilst there is a minority of organisations that report being very advanced (10%) in their response to the way work is changing, there are a significant majority who risk being left behind whilst their more agile competitors take the war for talent to the next level.

Learning for Talent

10 Minute Read Learning for Talent June 2013 The journey Read any business magazine or report on competing and winning in business today and somewhere near the beginning they will bring up the issue of talent or talent management. Whilst talent management is a topic that the HR industry has focused on for some time, it is becoming a topic of the boardroom. CEOs and the executive leadership in major companies now routinely talk about the ‘war for talent’, and about the need to find and retain the best people. Talent management is getting a lot of attention. But this Viewpoint paper is not a case for talent management per se. In many ways, we are taking that as a given. What this paper is about is the central role that learning and development plays within talent management, and how important it is to effectively integrate learning and development across our talent processes. Effective talent management is about more than measurement and management; it is also about action, i.e. strategies for improving performance and developing talent. Learning and development is not just one of the segments of the talent lifecycle, it is a fundamental enabler of many of the other segments. Learning and development is the engine room of an integrated talent strategy. But first, we should ask who, or what, is ‘talent’? […]
