Findings
The Identification and Assessment of 4 Factors Which Can Affect an Organisation’s Approach to Attracting Talent
The main factor here is Supply and Demand:
* Is there a vacancy? The first point to consider is whether or not there is actually a vacancy to fill. If a current member of staff has left or is intending to leave, could the vacancy be filled by splitting the job between other current employees? This could be resolved by carrying out a job analysis gaining information from the leaver (through an exit interview) and the line manager. The opportunity could arise at this point to consider restructuring the company by promoting someone to take on more responsibility – thereby affording that employee greater job satisfaction and self-esteem and at the same time providing the company with the knowledge that they are less likely to lose further valued staff.
* Can the company afford to fill the role? It may be, given the current economic climate, that the company takes the opportunity to make a particular role redundant after discussion with the relevant line manager. It may be useful to…...

Resourcing Strategy

...People Resourcing Standards | Practitioner-level Standards People Resourcing Purpose The pace of change affecting organisations shows no sign of slowing down and it has a strong impact on managerial expectations about: • employee behaviour and attitudes • corporate pressures on managerial performance • the employability potential and aspirations of labour market entrants • the criteria for success applied to those engaged in employee resourcing activities. Therefore, this elective is designed to recognise the following key points: • For any organisation to achieve its people resourcing outcomes, the people resourcing professional must be aware of the organisation’s strategic direction and be able to demonstrate that the resourcing policies, systems and procedures contribute to achieving the corporate strategic goals. • There is no guarantee that today’s organisations will exist in the indefinite future, either at all or in their present form. So this elective seeks to address the competencies that resourcing professionals are likely to need ‘everywhere and tomorrow’, rather than just ‘here and now’. • Administering employment systems in line with the law and recognised standards of fairness and good practice is important, but it doesn’t make the difference between success and failure in the market place. People resourcing professionals add real value through their contribution to the recruitment, selection, deployment, development and retention of people who themselves...

...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...

Talent Agency

...Example: The Talent Agency Suppose you have been asked to build a database for a talent agency that books musical bands into clubs/Restaurants. The agent needs a database to keep track of the agency’s transactions and to answer day-to-day questions. For example, a club manager often wants to know which bands are available on a certain date at a certain time, or wants to know the agent’s fee for a certain band. The agent may want to see a list of all band members and the instrument each person plays, or a list of all bands that have three members. Suppose that you have talked to the agent and have observed the agency’s business operation. You conclude that your database needs to reflect the following facts: 1. A booking is an event in which a certain band plays in a particular club on a particular date, starting and ending at certain times, and performing for a specific fee. A band can play more than once a day. The Heartbreakers, for example, could play at the East End Cafe in the afternoon and then at the West End Cafe on the same night. For each booking, the club pays the talent agent. The agent keeps a five per cent fee and then gives the remainder of the payment to the band. 2. Each band has at least two members and an unlimited maximum number of members. The agent notes a telephone number of just one band member, which is used as the band’s contact number. No two bands have the same name or telephone number. 3. Band member names are not unique. For example...

... can be applied to all organizational contexts. Each organization has different resourcing requirements for its current and future ‘talent pipeline’, as well as different issues concerning how best to meet these requirements. It’s these considerations that should determine the talent strategy an organization develops. The research addresses answers for the following questions 1) What is the meaning and nature of talent or global talent management and succession planning in particular organizational contexts? 2) What are the key challenges faced by organizations in their approach to talent management? 3) What are the measures of success/critical success factors for talent management initiatives for both the management of the organization and its employees? A set of references utilized in the preparation of this review is found at the end. TALENT MANAGEMENT RESEARCH PAPER  By Ramy Emam                                                                                                      Page 4   III. What do we mean by “Talent Management”? Talent management is difficult to define because it’s a complex undertaking that operates within the strategic human resourcing task generally. In the CIPD’s 2006 learning and development survey, only 20% of respondents specifically had a formal definition of talent management and, although 51% of respondents said they undertake talent management activities, there is generally a lack of consistency in defining talent and talent......

Talent Management

...The telecommunications industry is frequently among the first sectors to enter the newly emerging economies, often bringing financial services as well as connectivity to poor but ambitious populations who are eager for education, telecommunications, electricity, and mobility. Companies operating in frontier markets like much of sub-Saharan Africa, along with some countries in Central Asia, Latin America, and Southeast Asia face hurdles more challenging than anything they have seen in the BRICs, especially in recruiting, retaining, and developing employees. The frontier markets are at the heart of Etisalat’s long-term strategy and although telecommunication and technology are their main-business their biggest challenge lies in their talent management strategy. The nature of our industry and the dynamics of the market these days dictate that companies need people who are not just very capable but very adaptable to changing financial times and various geographic environments. Also, robust retention packages and incentives are required to retain talent. Etisalat has been able to attract, retain, and manage executive talent not just based on the compensation package, but also on their ability to create a long-term relationship and opportunities for professional development. They create a snapshot of each individual in their talent pipeline in terms of the three Es: education, experience, and exposure. And then they create the opportunities to make sure that they are well...

These differences include race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical abilities and economic backgrounds.

Talent

...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...

... to expect from the selection process, including how long it will take and the type of assessment they will undergo. Employers should also check whether the applicant has any need for adjustments due to a disability. Behavioural science has a 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.
