Sample Talent Management Philosophy

We achieve results through people. Therefore, our success hinges on our ability to effectively attract, engage, and reward talented people.

Attracting Talent

As a national organization, we compete for talent across sectors, organization sizes, and geographic areas. To be successful, we must attract high caliber people who can grow with us. Attracting a talented work force requires a strong employment brand. Therefore, we are committed to creating a culture of excellence which rewards performance, supports professional growth and development and values diversity. In addition, we seek to treat each person as an individual and to create a climate of openness and trust, respect and dignity. At the same time, we will balance individual needs with the needs of the whole organization.

Engaging Talent

As we continue to grow, the capabilities of our employees must keep pace with the challenges before us. New challenges require new competencies and approaches. Our talent engagement strategy seeks to ensure that our culture stretches our capabilities, rewards results, and provides meaningful and satisfying work. To achieve this, we will focus on competency development, performance and talent management, and succession planning. Our priority is to enable high performing employees to achieve their best and to develop high potential staff. We commit to promoting from within, when possible, and to selecting for diversity.

To encourage high employee engagement levels, we will acknowledge and appreciate employee contributions on a regular basis; ensure that management competencies are well understood and rewarded; and make certain that our managers are well equipped to effectively manage and develop all staff in targeted core competencies.

...socscinet.com/bam/humres Talent management: A critical review Robert E. Lewis ⁎, Robert J. Heckman Personnel Decisions International, USA Abstract If the volume of literature in the popular and practitioner press is any guide, practitioners in the field of human resources are now primarily in the business of talent management. But what is talent management and what basis does it have in scientific principles of human resources and management? In this paper we address this question by reviewing problems with the definition of talent management and the lack of data supporting many practitioner claims. We then outline research that supports a systemsoriented definition of talent management that focuses on the strategic management of talent. We then outline future avenues of research to further develop the field of talent management and tie it more closely to the large volume of work in strategic human resources management. © 2006 Elsevier Inc.

...Resourcing Talent – Talent Planning in an Organisation 1. Four factors that affect an organisations approach to attracting talent are: * Expansion – A company that keeps expanding attracts a lot of new talent who want job security and promotion prospects. * Development opportunities – A company who offer learning and development opportunities will attract a lot of talent who want to learn new skills to better their career. Without training prospects a lot of talent will be lost. * Salary – A company with lower levels of salary wouldn’t attract as much talent as higher levels of pay. Workers want their hard work to reflect in their wages. * Benefits packages – A company with good benefits package also attracts talent. People want to see what the company offers to safeguard and assist their employees. 2. Three organisation benefits of attracting and retaining a diverse workforce are: * A varied array of employees means different levels of skills and knowledge, enabling each sector of an organisation to excel. * A diverse workforce means people possess different attitudes and values whether these values are derived from race, religion or even nationality. When all brought together can benefit the company when dealing with a wide range of people and even internationally. * Creativity and productivity would increase. People with different backgrounds have different ways of thinking. Enabling different views and ideas to emerge. 3....

...Microsoft: Competing on Talent (A) Christopoher A Bartlett Summary of Case In summer 1999, a front page article on Wall Street Journal reported that: “Tired of grueling deadlines, frustrated by the bureaucracy that has accompanied Microsoft’s explosive growth, or lured away by the boom in high tech start ups, dozens of the company’s most capable leaders, all around 40, have opted out – at least temporarily….” Foundations of Microsoft’s human resources philosophies, policies and practices Recruitment: attracting the best and the brightest Bill Gates had long recognized that it took exceptional people to write outstanding software. In the initial stages, they recruited “smart friends” extremely intelligent but not necessarily experienced, new college graduates. In 1992, Gates acknowledged that “Take our 20 best people away, and I will tell you that Microsoft will become an unimportant company”. He considered helping his managers hire the best of all possible candidates as his greatest accomplishment. For Gates, acquired knowledge was less important than “smarts” – the ability to think creatively, and experience was less important than ambition – the drive to get things done. And, to raise the bar continually. One of the prime responsibility of Steve Ballmer, since he was hired in 1980 as assistant to the President was recruiting coordinator. Steve’s mantra was: ...

Spotting Talent

...Attracting and selecting the right talent is critical to a company’s success. For tech companies, the process is even more critical since it’s the knowledge, skills, and abilities of their employees that determines these companies’ efficiency, innovation, and ultimately, financial achievements. Modis, a global provider of IT staffing and recruiting, has an interesting philosophy about searching for talented tech types. As pressure has mounted on businesses to find qualified employees, the search for the “perfect” candidate has become increasingly competitive. This company calls this “search for perfection the quest for the ‘purple squirrel’”. Sometimes you have to realize that, like the purple squirrel, the “perfect” candidate isn’t available or doesn’t exist. But that doesn’t mean you don’t try to find the best available talent. How do some of the big tech names spot talent? For “mature” tech companies like IBM, Microsoft, and Hewlett-Packard (H-P), the challenge can be especially difficult since they don’t have the allure of start-ups or the younger, “sexier” tech companies. So these businesses have to “pour on the charm.” Take IBM, for instance. After its Watson computer beat two former Jeopardy champions in a televised match, the company hauled the machine to Carnegie Mellon, a top school, where students got a chance to challenge the computer. IMB’s goal: lure some of those students to consider a career at IBM. H-P is using the pizza party/tech talk approach......

From Pipli, Kurukshetra-Ambala Road, Kurukshetra, Haryana (136118), India Tel: 094165-70322 Received: August 13, 2010 Abstract Managing talent in a global organization is more complex and demanding than it is in a national business—and few major worldwide corporations have risen to the challenge. The current business and economic environment is exposing a host of weaknesses in the talent management practices of many organizations, as well as the lack of a comprehensive understanding of skills, capabilities, key workforces and top talent. Talent strategy is, in fact, as important as any other part of an organization’s overall strategy, regardless of the business conditions. Unfortunately, the harsh glare of the downturn has exposed the fact that the talent planning and management capabilities of many organizations are not equal to the challenges that lie ahead. Smart companies will also keep an eye out for skilled workers who......

...RETAINING HIGH-POTENTIALS TO DRIVE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE FROM INDIVIDUAL PERSPECTIVE 1. INTRODUCCIÓN 2. TALENT RETENTION Las organizaciones, a lo largo de todo el mundo, comparten como una de sus máximas prioridades conseguir la retención de los empleados más talentosos, “el talento”, por ser esta variable, una de las claves para conseguir alcanzar una ventaja competitiva organizacional en el mercado. Así, viene reflejado en el reciente estudio de Global Human Capital Trends de Bersin, 2014, dónde en una encuesta realizada a 2532 líderes organizacionales de 94 países diferentes, la retención de los empleados era la prioridad número 2, dentro de la gestión del talento. Junto con lo anterior, hay que tener en consideración que justamente los empleados con mayor talento son los más complejos de retener así (Abbasi and Hollman, 2000, pag.333) aluden a que son “the smartest and most talented employees [who] are the most mobile and the ones who are disproportionately more likely to leave” Teniendo en consideración la importancia de la retención de los altos potenciales, y los esfuerzos que deben hacer las organizaciones en su retención, debemos considerar que ya algunos estudios, apuntaban a que la relación empresa-empleado está experimentado cambios muy relevantes que tienen implicaciones para la atracción, retención y motivación de los empleados con más talento (Horwitz et al., 2003; Roehling et al., 2000; Turnley and Feldman, 2000).

Talent management is found to be important for modern organizations because of the advent of the knowledge economy, new generations entering the workforce and the need for businesses to become more strategic and competitive, which implies new ways of managing human capital. Furthermore, talent management is motivated by the fact that it has been found to lead to higher corporate profits when it is connected to the corporate strategy. The research method in this thesis is qualitative, and based on a case study of an organization in Norway active in the oil and gas industry, where qualitative semi-structured......

...10/6/2015 Renaissance Women My talent is more than one talent which some may call it as being multi-talented. I can do pretty much anything once I put my mind to and once it is shown to me one time I will be able to do it without supervision. Below I will list a few of my many talents and compare them from the internet with the outcome of my own work. While home after giving birth to my daughter I picked up a hobby in making baby shower pins. A friend of mine was having a baby shower and needed help in getting her pins done. She was running out of funds so I volunteer in making the pins for her. I went to my local novelty store to see how the pins looked and are made. Once I saw how easy it was I bought all the products that I needed and began making them myself. Once I finished the pins I was very proud of myself and began showing people what I had done. I had gotten great response back which lead to people placing orders and me making this hobby into something that makes me money. My next talent is decorating for parties as well as doing party bags for kid events. My family is the type where we celebrate everything in our lives whether it’s a birth, a birthday, graduation etc. My older cousin was having a party for her son (my little cousin) and the theme was ninja turtles. She asked me if I was able to help her and I agreed to do the party bags. I looked online for unique ideas to make ninja turtle party bags, which I did. Once I found a cute idea I sent it to her......

...Philosophy Paper 2 In today’s society, journalists allow the public to become spectators to the hardship felt by other countries. Through the use of media and global communications, coverage on wars and disaster has become a part of the average families home. Susan Sontag uses the quote, “if it bleeds, it leads”, to describe who the tabloids feature conflict and violence to incite a response from the public. These responses usually include compassion, indignation, or approval, as each misery is place in front of the ever-watchful eyes of the public. The public is increasingly suspicious of things that seem too good to be true. Thus, photographs that are less perfect and perhaps could have been taken by a mere passerby are more effective. One point that Sontag makes in the second section of her book Regarding the Pain of Others is that “a photograph has only one language.” The media also has many different ways of transmitting a message. There are perceived differences between how different kinds of mediums affect people. Marshall McLuhan coined the phrase “The medium is the message” (Book, 1967), meaning that the form of a medium embeds itself in the message, creating a symbiotic relationship by which the medium influences how the message is perceived. A written account of a situation that is provided through written journalism has a complexity of thought and has the ability to be pitched to a larger or smaller readership. There can be miscommunication between the......

A TERM PAPER TITLE:- “THE ESSENCE/SUBSTANCE OF MAN” BY FACULTY: SCIENCE DEPARTMENT: MICROBIOLOGY COURSE TITLE: PHILOSOPHY AND LOGIC COURSE CODE: GST 205 CONTENT * Introduction * What is man * Philosophically * Scientifically * The essence and substance of man * What constitute man * Man as a dualist * Man as a monad * Man as a socialist * Man as a spiritual entity * Man as a physical entity * Intrinsic characteristics that man have in common * Illustration of the mental essence(when man is abnormal is he still half or full) INTRODUCTION The essence of man is the constituent of man which goes beyond his body alone but extends to his mind, soul, spirit and other attributes of man. But we cannot talk about the essence of man without the existence of man because without an existence of man, man’s essence is of no use and nothing to talk about. This brings about the proposition ‘existence precedes essence’. The proposition that existence precedes essence is a central claim of existentialism, which reverses the traditional philosophical view that the essence (the nature) of a thing is more fundamental and immutable than its existence (the mere fact of its being). To existentialists, human beings—through their consciousness—create their own values and determine a meaning for their life because the human being does not possess any inherent identity or value. By posing the acts that......

...Stansfield College _ Singapore Literature Review _ HR502 Strategic Human Resource Management (PGDM Unit) Talent Management Shawn Tkatch March 2012 Program: MBA – VUN (Jan-Apr 2012 Term) Lecturer : Juhi Ranjan INTRODUCTION In 1997 a group of McKinsey consultants coined the phrase a “War for Talent” which refers to an organizations effort to improve strategies, policies and practices for the attraction, development, deployment and retention of talent for their business. This brings about the need to understand precisely what the organization requires and to determine the actual and potential talents required of the employees. David Whitwan, former CEO of Whirlpool Corporation stated “The thing that wakes me up in the middle of the night is not the economy or competitors; it is whether we have the leadership capability”. This statement reveals the challenges that organizations face in the new knowledge economy. Developing and retaining good and talented people has become a significant challenge for most businesses, big or small. In the 21st century, talent is being defined as the new wealth. In today’s business, most organizations are talent poachers opposed to talent developers within their existing employee workforce. Once talent is identified, companies use anything and everything to lure that talent to the organization in order to gain the competitive edge. A Harvard Business Review article from January, 2000......
