Making Talent a Strategic Priority
Workplace challenges we face in the near future are mainly related to human resource management. How do we engage Gen Xers’ (born 1965-1983) and the Y generation (1984-2002) to remain loyal committed growing employees? As boomers set to retire, the challenge becomes increasingly imminent.
Barbara Mills, renowned Canadian human resource expert is presenting a series of four related workshops to the OXFORD GROUP in Toronto on this very subject in 2008. Her solution and action-oriented presentation will be participative. Participants will together find creative workable answers for this prominent and successful property/development holding company. Barbara is prepared to adapt her OXFORD presentation to meet the specific objectives of your organization.
Making Talent a Strategic Priority will effectively empower your organization to attract, motivate and retain capable workers. Like most organizations, you have specialists, a variety of workers from diverse demographic backgrounds, high potential frontline and middle management staff and other employees. Enabling talent to rise to the top requires strategic and tactical thinking. To succeed, your plan must keep in mind the motivating values of your X and Y people and what makes each individual “tick” This workshop will help your agency groom selected members of your current organization to promote to management and increasingly complex supervision and executive roles. It will also increase your reputation as an attractive and desirable place to work. Barbara will help you integrate grooming and promoting talent into your business plan for the long and short-term benefit your organization. Her workshop will cover:
- Spending high quality time on talent management
- Encouraging constructive collaboration in the workplace
- Developing means to the development of employees’ capabilities and careers
- Differentiating between promo table top performers, average, and under-performers
- Addressing underperformance
- Shaping a talent management strategy.
In a practical and enjoyable way, Barbara will help you make a working inventory of your current talent pool, find out what motivates each to contribute more and progress within the organization, institute a mentorship program, build business skills through job rotation, create a career development, in-house training, stay interview and recognition programs and other useful, proven, tailored programs that will work to regenerate your organization. Not all of these suggestions may work for your organization; some may now be in place. Barbara will help your group come up with an effective plan to meet your particular needs and shape your organization for the future.
It is recommended that this workshop be carried out over a half-day, either a morning or an afternoon (preferably a morning).
