As talent managers, our goal is for our companies to manage their talent assets as carefully as they manage their balance sheets. We set our own agendas, conduct surveys and do a variety of other activities designed to maximize the sharing of best practices and exchange of ideas. We focus both on longer-term strategic issues as well as shorter-term more immediate issues of prime interest to our members.
Members are the senior executive leading talent management strategy; they are positioned at Corporate HQ (home office) in a Center of Expertise. Core responsibilities include several of the following topics, all of which we discuss during meetings:
- Succession planning
- Executive Development for the “top 200”
- Executive assessments/Talent reviews
- High potential development programs
- Developmental movement/mobility
- Executive recruiting/retention/rewards
- Strategic Workforce Planning
- Talent metrics/analytics and ROI
- Performance management/Competency models
