Talent Management Executives Council III

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 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
  • Employee engagement
  • Executive recruiting/retention/rewards
  • Strategic Workforce Planning
  • Talent metrics/analytics and ROI
  • Performance management
  • Competency models

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers is the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the council value.

What members say

“The Council offers a unique opportunity to have open, candid conversations with peers from numerous industries.  I take home more gems from a single council meeting than I do from several conferences.  More importantly, these gems have a person that I can call to explore the learning at a deeper level.”
