Buy, build, borrow or redeploy are the traditional, go-to tactics for closing talent gaps. But in some geographies, talent isn’t a feasible or cost-effective solution. HR leaders need to weigh the full range of options, including some outside their traditional domain.
New research from The Conference Board describes how GE makes decisions about how to resource its eight businesses while shifting the company's center of gravity from the developed world to other regions. Paul Fama, who leads global talent development for GE's Global Growth Organization, explains how GE:
1. identifies the organizational capabilities it will need before evaluating strategic options—including talent;
2. blends talent solutions and invents new ones; and
3. thinks about the entire talent ecosystem, rather than just the talent the company owns today or wants to in the future.
Who Should Attend: Mid-level and senior HR executives with regional and global responsibilities in talent management, learning & development, strategy, corporate planning, and strategic workforce planning
