Talent management ecosystem needed
PETALING JAYA: Talent eco-management has to be built within organisations to help employees realise their full potential as well as assist companies to build a competitive advantage.
Johnson & Johnson global talent management director of Asia Pacific Roshan Thiran said companies needed to integrate “long-term talent management ecosystem” into their business strategy to win in the marketplace.
“It is a fundamental business tool. If you do this right, it becomes a competitive advantage,” he told StarBiz yesterday.
According to him, a talent management eco-system comprised four components that needed equal attention and focus, namely talent programmes, leadership engagement, system and structure and culture.
However, the key ingredient in a successful long-term talent management ecosystem was having aligned commitment from leadership and human resource, he stressed.
“Talent management is really an alignment of talent hiring, talent development and talent retention programmes that help to engage employees into the company’s culture,” said Roshan.
Roshan is one of the 12 speakers who will be discussing key talent management issues and challenges at the upcoming Asia Strategic Talent Management Forum 2008.
Others include organisational and clinical psychologist George Kohlriesser, MindValley chief executive officer and co-founder Vishen Lakhiani, General Electric Co human resource director Anusoorya Themudu.
The Asia Strategic Talent Management Forum 2008, which is organised by training firm Leaderonomics Sdn Bhd, will be held on Nov 13 at the Sime Darby Convention Centre.
The key sponsors for the event are StarBiz, Sime Darby Bhd and Westports Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
