Optimize the Best People and Talent
The global, connected, and mobile nature of people is opening the door for organizations to participate and engage in talent networks that align everyday work with shifting business goals. It is also helping organizations spot nascent leaders and providing targeted and peer-to-peer training to meet daily business challenges.

With this in mind, KPMG is developing the concept of a talent cost calculator, designed to be a tool to help identify correlations and causal relationships between spending on talent management and improved performance and business metrics. The tool incorporates all expenditure within the talent management area – from recruitment through to retention activity, performance recognition, training and leadership development – as well as data on employee populations – covering salary costs, retention, etc. development of the talent cost calculator is in its early stages, but KPMG is working with clients to gather the data and inputs with which to begin the analysis, and the medium-term goal is to build and grow a database and tool that allow increasing insight into talent spend and the measurable impact it has across the business.
Until the late 1980s, business school curricula emphasized the technical aspects of management, focusing on economics, accounting, finance and quantitative techniques. Course work in human behavior and people skills received relatively less attention. Same with the companies, they were also not putting force on human skills in those days. Slowly the importance of understanding human behavior increased for Organizations too. Developing managers’ interpersonal skills also helps organizations attract and keep high performing employees. We have come to understand that in today’s competitive and demanding workplace, managers can’t succeed on their technical skills alone. They also have to have good people skills. Every organization in today’s world invests in behavioral training. It does seem like organizations have woken up to realize the importance of key behaviors and their relevance at every stage of the employee life cycle. The significance of training in general and behavioral training in particular is now concerned for the Organizations to manage talent. Leaders more than anything else need to have a certain character. Hence every training session that deals with leadership has to deal with character building. Unfortunately many Organizations do not pay much attention in bringing out and building the best Interpersonal skills in their employees. It is very important that attention be given towards behavioral skills and soft skills such that a balance of technical competency and behavioral skills is maintained which is an important criteria for any Organization. Behavioral skills like motivation, leadership, communication skills, team spirit and self-management, stress management, work life balance, conflict resolution, have noticed a marked transition in the last few years from being ‘good to have’ to be a
Marty Thomas, Senior Vice President of Operations and
Engineering Services, commented on a major change in the company’s approach to human capital:
Five years ago we had a major problem getting the people we need to do the custom engineering of our products. So, we developed a university relations approach. Now we work very hard to manage the upstream supply of talent. We have a world-class intern program, we’ve endowed a chair in supply chain management, we helped write the curriculum for the university. We do this at a variety of universities around the world where we have a major facility.

10. Invest in talent in your shop. Foundations can turn the talent lens on themselves to lead by ex- ample and practice what they preach. Foundation employment tends to be more stable and lucrative than other nonprofit work. Yet many founda- tions are not particularly thoughtful in orienting, training, and educating their staff members, since grantmaking is not considered to be a career (Stahl, 2004). If foundations recognized the value they could derive from talent development inter- nally, this should translate into increased talent investments for grantee organizations. The caveat is that foundations, privileged as they are, should not stop with themselves – they must use the talent lens internally and externally, with grantees remaining top priority.
Software engineering is a very practical major, which pays attention to the training of students' application ability, with training program covering three features including systematicness, engineering quality and practicability. It has designed a four-year full-cycle talenttraining program for undergraduate students. Considering the different application directions, it is also divided into two major directions, namely, software development and digital media technology development, which include two different types of application modules respectively. The software direction includes the software development and system testing in related fields, such as, JAVA, C++, embedded and. NET fields; the digital media direction includes the design of fields, such as, games, animations, multimedia, websites and BPOs . In combination with the past curriculum training cases and real cases of enterprise engineering projects, a common CMMI project management model is adopted. According to the modularization and project-oriented labor division, students can experience the development process and evaluation criteria with international norms in a real enterprise atmosphere so as to expand their knowledge and vision, improve their ability to analyze problems independently, understand the working rhythms of an enterprise, develop good professional qualities and realize the change from the campus people to the enterprise people. The training system of software engineering major is shown in Figure 2.
Talent Match London
Talent Match London has engaged young people in peer mentoring and active leadership roles. One delivery partner in East London described how Talent Match had “devolved more power to their youth board” by engaging young people proactively in developing employer links and networks. This was described as: “been fantastic - it’s boosted numbers and provision”. Social and networking facilities for young people were provided through a ‘youth room’: a space available every Friday afternoon for young people to meet and play games (pool, table tennis etc.) whilst “meeting like-minded people who are moving forward and not held back by their peers.” Employers and service providers also attend to meet young people and provide training and information.
People and talent are key competitive advantages in a global and fast-changing environment. New technologies offer insight into workforce requirements, make individuals more productive and innovative, and support talent readiness.
Analytics solutions provide workforce insight that facilitates decision making for executives, HR experts, and line managers. Organizations must assess data, identify trends and root causes, and share findings with stakeholders to align their workforces and business strategies.
The talent agenda for the future: Integrating talent with business strategy
Although many HR functions have begun to play a strategic role in guiding succession management, knowledge retention and other enterprise-wide initiatives, there is still opportunity for such functions to improve and truly transform key influencers and decision-makers. The pressing need for organizations to maintain a diverse pool of talented leaders, capture expertise knowledge from exiting employees, and outsource transactional activities to focus on core capabilities has heightened the importance of the HR function.
Using this icon launches your evaluation within the system. However, it also allows you to search for your direct reports evaluations. This will enable you to see which state of the workflow they are currently in. If the review is in the completed state, you will be able to view it until HR closes out all reviews for the year. When this occurs, you will need to access the historical evaluation from the Talent Profile.

Of these activities, the youth-led commissioning process is perhaps the most significant. This saw all project staff, the Core Partnership and the Young People's Panel work together to issue a tender for four different streams of activity: personal and social development; health and well-being; work-related activities; and innovation and creativity. Once bids were in, the process was led entirely by young people who, with the support of the Middlesbrough Volunteer Development Agency, short-listed, interviewed and made final selections over which providers to contract with. This was a step change from previous rounds of commissioning to select delivery partners when young people had worked alongside the Core Group. By contrast, project staff only became involved in this new phase of commissioning to ensure due diligence. This process was almost universally seen to work well although one partner challenged this consensus by suggesting that provision commissioned was not always popular with beneficiaries and highlighted the risks of commissioning being 'too youth led'.
Increasing leadership requirements—both the need for more leaders, and the need for leaders with skills to manage new complexities—are turning up the heat on leadership development and succession planning. But despite all the talk about job-hopping and “talent on demand,” many companies in our study remain deeply committed to growing leaders from within as a critical element of their talent strategy. In fact, nearly a quarter of the interviewees raised the issue without being asked. “While we believe that refreshing our talent pool from the external market is important from time to time,” said BHP Billiton’s Karen Wood, “our preference will always be to promote from within because we believe that the BHP Billiton way of doing business is not only what we do, but also how we do it. It is something that can only be developed after a long period of time in the organization.” Philips Electronics has a similar view. “Going outside is not the ﬁrst choice,” said the company’s Hayko Kroese. “Our philosophy is building talent—growing talent in the company. At the same time, it’s important to stay in touch with the market. You should always benchmark so you know if you really have the best people in-house. This is true even for top positions.”
Arguably, people are the most crucial ingredient in strategy execution. Dealing with talent issues was the number one concern related to strategy execution among a group of 75 executives that were interviewed for Reinventing Talent Management. 2
“Talent,” they said, “is what will make or break their success in the new marketplace.” Recent interviews and executive forums suggest that “traditional talent models are broken,” as observed by Anna Tavis, a senior HR executive with AIG and leader of a Financial Services HR Roundtable group in New York City. Recognizing that talent is clearly important and traditional talent models seem inadequate, the Metrus Institute began examining talent in the context of the new marketplace. We sought to better understand what was deficient about traditional models of talent and what was needed to overcome these deficiencies. As part of this research, the Metrus Institute reviewed and conducted numerous research studies and examined successful versus unsuccessful firms, with the goal of better understanding how talent is or could be optimized in organizations.
Instead of needing a good reason and signatures in triplicate to cross an internal barrier, an open talent organization needs a good reason to erect a barrier in the first place. Barriers between organizations become permeable as well and give way to a borderless workplace. If today’s employees occupy less sharply defined places in your structure, you may find some of tomorrow’s employees on someone else’s balance sheet—likely as not, their own balance sheets. Because there are fewer ties to keep a person from walking out the door, organizations can’t ever rest in recruiting, developing, or managing their talent and leadership. Once, barriers kept people in. Today, a sense of organizational magnetism has to draw people in.
