During this season of celebration, FlashPoint offers you and your team our warm congratulations for the work that you do, our heartfelt appreciation for your friendship, and our sincere wishes for a successful new year.
As we look ahead to 2015, here are three talent management trends that we’re excited about.
Training that connects learning to real business issues. Increasingly, training programs are incorporating action learning teams that work with leaders to solve business needs. This helps the training to stick and makes a valuable impact on the organization.
Focus on succession. After years of planning, now comes action: organizations are succession doing. They’re making more strategic hires based on succession needs, they’re utilizing skills assessments and skills cataloging to identify development needs, and they're implementing realistic development plans at all levels.
Globalization and localization of talent. As diversity increases and business goes even more global, companies will look for employees who can deliver both a global perspective and local market knowledge. This means HR professionals will have to grow their own skills, and we’ll see a greater push for global HR/diversity certifications and more wide-ranging work experiences.
Wherever you focus your talent management efforts in the year ahead, we hope you’re just as eager to implement programs and processes that help your organization achieve strategic results!
