The purpose of this document is to describe my individual contribution in the group assignment. This phase of introduction contains the idea of the entire project and emphasizes my role in the assignment. Our topic for the group assignment is Talent management, Recruitment and selection. The group name is N and consisted seven members. At the first stage of the project we were trying to introduce ourselves in the group try to share our views in the topic. After the discussions we had to share the topic equally and try to find as much information as possible. The group was very enthusiastic and we used to often meet in the college and online to discuss the issues. After my entire group members came out with their own ideas on the topic we shared our ideas and discussed the experiences. After a series of discussions of my group we got a clear idea of what to do in the presentation. We also consulted our lecturer in this regard. He gave us some suggestions on what areas to concentrate and what areas to ignore. He gave us examples of Talent management and gave us a suggestion to concentrate more on talent as that was a very good topic. So the team worked hard to get their best for the presentation. Now we will discuss the individual views of the group and the group contribution in the assignment.
The topic for our assignment was Talent management, Recruitment and selection. Our team came out with very good views on their topic. The presentation was based on the topics which the group has discussed. In the presentation we talked about talent management, recruitment and selection in an organization and its outcomes. We will now discuss about each topic in detail.
Presentation in the making:
After a lot of research our group had some clear ideas on their own topics they had chosen. The discussion on the second, third and fourth week before was very important as the team mates had many ideas on their topics. But we had to set the time for preparing the presentation. In the due course we had to filter the individual topics of the group. So after the discussions done by the team we made some notes of how to start the presentation. We also took some suggestions from our lecturer regarding the presentation. As we have shown him some part of the presentation he was satisfied and gave us an idea to focus more on talent management as that was an emerging topic. So with his suggestion we had to change the presentation as it had equal weights for all the topics. We tried to inter relate the topic with each other using an example and tried to filter some parts in recruitment and selection.
After passing through many additions, filters in our topic we finally made our presentation. For the presentation to look good one of our team mates came with some quotes by famous business personalities like Jim Collins saying
“People are not your most valuable asset â€¦The right People are”
With all these ideas in mind our group was ready for the presentation. Let us now discuss about each of the topics in detail.
It refers to the process of development and integration of new workers, developing and retaining current workers, and attracting highly skilled workers to work for a company. The term talent management was coined by David Watkins. The process of retaining the talent and develop new talent in a firm leads to a competition in firms and hence it has been a war for talent.
Talent is defined in terms of strategic HR and business planning where companies retain talent. Find new talent and improve effectiveness in the workforce of an organization. The talent management emerged in 1990’s where companies tried to implement talent management in their firms. Talent management was not solely managed by the HR but it was divided into all the departments and was effectively implemented. The business strategy includes training subordinates and is responsible to develop skills of line managers. This includes all divisions of a company to share their knowledge and to develop skills which is useful for the company. Some of the talent management initiatives include
· Sourcing, attracting and recruitment of qualified candidates with competitive backgrounds.
· Managing and defining competitive salaries to the talented.
· Training and development programs.
· Performance management processes
· Retention programs
· Promotion and transitioning
Let us now discuss about these in detail
A company needs to have talent for its success and effectiveness. For this companies source for talent and try to attract and recruit talent with amicable backgrounds and qualifications.
For talent to attract and retain talent the management has to define competitive salaries to the talent. Training and development programs to develop skills of the employees
Check the performance of candidates and compare them with other candidate’s performance. This helps the employees to improve their performance in the firm.
Young employees always want to move from company to company because of the benefits given by the company, so companies have the problem of retention of employees. In order to prevent the employees from jumping from company to company companies tend to give more salaries, benefits such as bonuses, pension plans, holiday plans and so on.
The employers not only must see the employees move away from company to company but also give them promotions and transitions in the company which makes the employees happy and they can serve for a long time in the company.
These are some of the talent management initiatives.
There is some talent realities involved which a company should follow such as telling their employees the differences between educated and talented. How talent can be developed and give them further training.
Since talent is getting scarce these days talent retention is important for an organization. For every employee sufficient training should be given. In this competitive world demand is more than the supply, hence to hire the talent companies ought to redevelop their strategies. There is sufficient demand but there are no talents to balance the ratio.
In these days loyalty to a company has become less. Since the young employees never be loyal because of companies which give less benefits to its employees. So companies must be loyal towards its employees. Hence loyalty is portable. Now let us discuss about talent paradigm which has 4 key parts
Apart from these there are some factors such as THE BOSS.
