Talent planning is a part of Human Resources processes that “ensures the organisation is able to identify and attract key people with the capability to create competitive advantage and that it actively manages an appropriate balance of resource to meet changing needs, fulfilling the short and long-term ambitions of the organisations strategy”. This article aims to explore, identity and explain factors that can affect an organisation’s approach to attracting talent, retaining a diverse workforce, recruitment, selection policies, the purpose, benefits of an effective induction for both individuals and organisations.

1. Identifies and assesses four factors (things) that affect an organisation’s approach to attracting talent:

Demand and Supply:
The demand and supply of talent in an organisation depends on the activities and nature of the business. If the activities of the business are in decline, such as the current situation in British steel manufacturing sector it will make the skills and jobs redundant. Less resources means low demand and supply of the talent within the organisation. HR needs to understand the business and relevant it is within their labour markets

Skills Shortage:
Skill shortage is the situation where “particular skills exceed the numbers of people trained in those skills”, which is an important factor affecting talent attraction. Due to current climate this is a national issue and major factor to the UK’s unemployment rate. The government and organisation are working through apprentice schemes to build skilled workforce but this could take years to achieve depending on the nature of the business.

...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.

Wide variations exist in how the term ‘talent’ is defined across differing sectors, and organizations may prefer to adopt their own interpretations rather than accepting universal or prescribed definitions.

Attracting Talent 3.1 Brand Identity “‘Brand Identity’: How a business wants a brand’s name, communication style, logo and other visual elements to be perceived by consumers.” (www.investopedia.com 07/10/14) An organisation with positive image will find it easier to attract and retain employees than the organisation with the negative image, this is due to the aspiration qualities associated with a positive image (i.e. wealth, style, charitable nature etc).

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......

...Case Study #1 Managing Talent Can Yahoo Still Attract Tech Workers? Human Resource Management October 20th, 2014 Can Yahoo Still Attract Tech Workers? Part 1: Overview of the case In this case, Yahoo’s employees tend to find another job in other technology companies. Thus, lacking employees is the severe challenge to Yahoo now. Yahoo has 14,000 employees are well paid, but its employees do not have their passion when they work for Yahoo, even a vice president and chief trust officer also left the company to work for another company. In order to solve this problem, recruiting is an important plan to keep Yahoo running. Yahoo must focus on the process of human resources planning. This planning also requires the following steps: forecasting, goal setting and strategic planning; and program implementing and evaluating the human resource plan. Forecasting is a first step of the process. It helps the company to determine the supply of and demand for various types of human resources. Based on that, we can predict areas within the company where there will be labor shortages or surpluses.

This step shows us the job category and skill area of employees. The final step is implementing and evaluating the plan. The plan will not succeed if a firm doesn’t implement it, and then a firm will evaluate what if the......

...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).

...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......

Talent Planning

...lot to say about the way we make decisions in recruitment settings as it tells us that people have hardwired systematic biases in how they evaluate candidates. Our behaviour does not always fit a rational actor model but it is still systemic and predictable. Harnessing knowledge about how we actually behave can help recruiters to improve outcomes for the organisations they represent. * Find out more in our report A head for hiring: the behavioural science of recruitment and selection ------------------------------------------------- The role of selection interviewing Interviews are very widely used in the selection process, as demonstrated by successive CIPD surveys of recruitment practices. * See our annual Resourcing and talent planning surveys As well as being simple to set up, interviews give the interviewer and interviewee an opportunity to meet face to face (or virtually via video link) to exchange a range of information and get a sense of whether they would like working together. For the employer, the interview is an opportunity to: * gauge candidates’ experience, ability to perform in the role and suitability for the team * discuss details such as start dates and terms and conditions * explain the employee value proposition, including training provision and employee benefits * give the candidate a positive impression of the organisation as a good employer. For the candidate, the interview is an opportunity to: * understand the job......

Talent Planning

...Report on Talent Planning There are many different factors that affect an organisations approach to attracting talent and are both internal and external factors. Some examples of internal factors are the size of a business. A larger business would find it much easier to source this could be because they are more well-known to the public and they would also be more financially able to advertise a post to get a larger range of applicants. Recruitment policies also have an effect ie recruiting from internal sources and external sources can affect the recruitment process. Generally recruitment through internal sources is preferred because own employees know the organisation and can fit well into the culture. The Image of the company has influence on the recruitment process. Good image of the company earned by the actions of management helps attract potential candidates. Managerial actions like good public relations can help earn image. Image of the job also has an affect such as better salaries and good working conditions are considered the characteristics of good image of a job. Also, promotion and personal development policies of an organisation also attract potential candidates. Some examples of external factors are Demographic factors; employees have a big influence on the recruitment process. Demographic factors include, age, sex, literacy, economic status etc. Labour market conditions have an affect ie supply and demand of labour is a huge importance in affecting......
