Strategic Talent Investment
HR PEOPLE + STRATEGY
Limited dollars for talent development? High expectations for measurable impact? More requests than resources available? These are just some of the challenges facing HR today. The solution: Make strategic talent investments that directly link to the business strategy.
Successful organizations have business strategies that define their goals, as well as the capabilities and systems they need to have in place to execute those goals. From my experience, the volatile marketplace has challenged leaders to craft sustainable, competitive strategies; of those that do, many still don’t thoughtfully consider the capabilities and aligned systems needed to operationalize their strategy. While there are exceptions to this conclusion, it is more commonplace to see lagging talent strategies and business systems.
