Your District's Got Talent: Technology Tools to Help Keep Good Employees
Turk-Peterson, Cheryl
School Business Affairs, v75 n10 p22-23 Nov 2009
Even in these extraordinary times of state budget shortfalls, furlough programs, and layoffs, school districts must still fill positions and compete for top talent among Generation X (those born between 1965 and 1980) and Generation Y (those born in 1981 or later). Every day, school district leaders are challenged to cultivate, assess, and retain employees across the district and stay in compliance with federal and state rules and guidelines. Talent management systems can help address these unique challenges. They can help leaders manage and develop the best teachers and other school employees, reveal where the top talent resides in the school district, recognize top performers, and create ways to identify and track specific employee goals. An organization with an integrated talent management system can package employee system-of-record data with higher-level talent management and workforce management applications. Such a system allows organizations to move beyond automation, using analytics to leverage data more effectively and make more informed decisions about their people, positioning themselves for greater success. These systems can also help identify those behaviors that make people succeed.
