5 Strategies To Win The War For Talent

5 Minute Read 5 Strategies to Win the War for Talent December 2015 The positive upturn in the economy is significantly impacting the discussion of talent in business. The war for talent is back with a vengeance, but companies must focus on maximising and protecting their own internal talent as well as bringing in the right external talent.

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.

HR Critical Realities Part 1: The Challenges and Priorities 2016

January 2016

What are the realities, plans, trends and challenges of HR and HR technology in Europe

With two years of data thanks to Fosway’s ongoing partnership with HRN, the realities of HR in Europe are becoming clearer. Whether it’s the top levers for success, the top HR priorities, Cloud HR or the drivers for changing HR systems – our data is telling some interesting stories.

When commentators and analysts talk about HR, the regional subtleties are often ignored. It is often viewed as a global business. But the reality for most European and international customers is that HR often feels very different from a one size fits all approach. It can be much more complex. However, understanding that complexity through data hasn’t been easy. Research on the priorities, needs and differences for European companies has been very thin on the ground. The HR research that does exist, frequently has a very US centred perspective.

This first report in our series takes you through the critical realities and challenges and what’s driving change in European HR today.
