How does your company’s Talent Management Strategy development process compare?

You would expect that today all companies would see the importance of having a Talent Management strategy yet Jeffrey Joerres, former leader of Manpower, commented in a recent interview in Harvard Business Review, “Nevertheless, companies routinely fail to put in place a workforce strategy that supports their business strategy. Most have done a pretty good job of looking out three years, maybe five, but they don’t then marry that up with the skills they’re going to need.” Talent management can be understood as a set of integrated organizational workforce processes designed to attract, develop, motivate and retain productive, engaged employees. The goal of talent management is to create a high-performance, sustainable organization that meets its strategic and operational goals and objectives consistently going forward.
