CIPD Talent Management conference

Although talent management is increasingly seen as a critical success factor in businesses, research from the CIPD finds that 74% of organisations do not have a clearly defined talent management strategy.

I've already posted on many of the issues accounting for this finding, for example here.

On 26 February, I'm chairing the CIPD's Talent Management Conference which will mix case studies with expert advice to help businesses deal with this problem.

Highlights at the conference include:

  • Tim Miller, Director of People Property and Assurance at Standard Chartered Bank, on Developing a Talent Management Strategy

  • Mark Roberts, Head of Talent, Tesco, discussing Organisation-wide Implementation and Alignment of talent management

  • Elizabeth Crosse, HR Consultant, Legal Services Commission, on Talent Management for Evolving Business Needs

Other organisations presenting include Cambridgeshire County Council, Deloitte, American Express and Siemens.
