Talent & Succession Planning Management

Organisations have always been focused on basic talent management :acquiring, hiring and retaining talented employees. To drive optimal levels of success, business leaders need engaged, high-performing employees. The key to inciting a workforce to greatness is to align your talent management programme and practices with company strategy, define consistent leadership criteria across all functional areas, and identify specific competencies to cultivate for continuing growth.

Business leaders who implement the optimum talent management processes are more prepared than their competitors to compete in the global economy and capitalize quickly on new opportunities. True success is only available when companies do more than adapt to long-term trends; they must be able to anticipate and jump on new opportunities before the rest of the market. A strategic talent management plan allows you to better achieve this.

This workshop will show you the way to easily learn key concepts & proven practices, adapt to your organisation needs and apply it through the help of your key stakeholders.  You will acquire talent management analytical tools, templates and case studies to facilitate the transfer of knowledge to actual implementation.
