Talent Management Online Summit

Creating the Next Generation of Excellence Through Innovative Talent Management Strategies

Dear Colleagues:

2013 is a critical year for HR and Talent professionals!

With the recent changes in the economy, the issue of retaining and engaging top talent will be at the forefront.

Talent Management professionals are continuously challenged, even more so in 2013 as new immigration reform processes and provisions to the Affordable Care Act have created additional talent shortages.

As if legislation hasn’t already put pressure on executives, talent professionals have additional fires to extinguish as they battle keeping on pace with the technological changes affecting workforce management, bridging the knowledge gap as baby boomers retire and retaining top talent in light of a more increased job market.

Regardless, executives are tasked with increasing demands to drive organizational performance. But how are these efforts affecting talent? As talent becomes increasingly disengaged, the health of any organization declines as well.

In a state of economic volatility, organizations cannot afford to jeopardize losing their high performers.

If organizations take the appropriate measures to strategically implement initiatives to attract, retain and engage employees the rewards will be substantial. Productivity will soar, thus increasing organizational financial performance and generating a return on investment.

Human Resources IQ is proud to present Talent Management Online Summit, an online event designed to help you create and implement talent management strategies in a shifting economy.

We look forward to seeing you online! Register today!

Creating a Culture To Attract and Retain World-Class Talent
Brian Gilbert

Whether the economy is weak or strong, whether is it spring or fall, whether their salary is high or low – whatever the circumstances – some employees will choose to leave the company. But why do people stay or leave? How can employers motivate people to stay longer? When you bring on new employees, it’s important to remember the message you’re communicating to them about their value to the company and its culture and remember that, leadership drives the talent culture.
