Talent Management

Talent management is at the top of business agendas around the world. If they are to compete in global markets, organisations must recruit, retain and develop the best talent, often in fields where there are skills shortages. To do this successfully, they must fulfil the career aspirations of different generations of the workforce, from Millennials and Generation Y to Generation X and Baby Boomers, while ensuring they meet key business objectives, such as succession planning.

Talent mobility – the movement of talent across an organisation’s departments, divisions and locations – plays an increasingly important part in global businesses’ talent management strategies. International assignments and relocations may both form part of a corporate talent mobility programme.

With contributions from experts, this section provides HR and talent managers, whether or not they are managing international assignments and global mobility, with the news, articles, tools and advice they need to keep up with the latest developments in talent management and formulate effective talent management solutions. It covers both policy and practice across a host of topics, including skills strategies, recruitment, and training and development, from career and leadership planning for graduate recruits and interns to developing women leaders and senior managers. Insights from the latest global mobility surveys are also featured.

See also our International Assignments, Human Resources, and Talent Management sections. For details of organisations in the global mobility industry that provide international assignment and recruitment services, as well as destination services providers and relocation management companies, see our Directory.
