Free Webinar: From War to Peace? Managing and Rewarding Talent at a Time of Uncertainty

9 May 2013

Date: 15 May 2013
Time: 2:15 - 3:15pm

Was your talent management programme put in place during a period of economic growth when scarce skills were obvious and jobs were growing? If so, how appropriate is it in the current economic climate?

Register for this webinar to gain exclusive access to the latest research on talent management and reward. Senior lecturers in HRM from the University of Westminster will present the latest evidence and reveal the preliminary findings of their own research. Providing an up-to-date holistic outlook on managing and rewarding talent as an operational and strategic tool, and what this means for your organisation.

This webinar introduces effective practices for managing and rewarding talent in times of success and in times of uncertainty for organisations.

Featuring practical casestudies outlining the managing and rewarding of talent with first hand accounts of what worked or didn't work well.

What you can expect to learn from this webinar:

  • Define talent and talent management and contrast different approaches to managing and rewarding talent
  • Demonstrate the key factors of success/failure in the practical application of talent management programmes within organisations
  • Explore HR practices associated with managing and rewarding talent from a strategic perspective 
  • Evaluate the importance of talent management provision during times of recession 
  • Assess potential barriers to supporting and facilitating talent management processes in organisations.

There is a divide between organisations that have selective talent management programmes with a focus on leadership and potential leaders, and those that see talent within a broader perspective. While there is evidence that employees within talent pools feel they are treated as special and this status seems to be motivational, there is also evidence that it can be seen as demanding.
