Talent Management: Emphasis on Action
Butterfield, Barbara
CUPA-HR Journal, v59 n1 p34-38 Spr-Sum 2008
Recent discussions among HR practitioners in higher education have focused on talent management; specifically, the concept of developing a college or university talent management approach balanced between planning and action. Talent management as a planning tool looks very similar to workforce planning, but where HR will experience a real opportunity for contribution to the organization is in the quality of implementation supporting the plan. This article emphasizes strategic human resource initiatives that can help realize an institution's talent goals and contribute to performance that will build future institutional capacity.
