For HR leaders aiming to beef up execution of talent-management strategies, Campbell of Hewitt suggests focusing on three steps.
1. Determine the most critical areas of the business to support. Ask what aspects of talent management are most closely aligned with the company’s top business priorities.
2. Position HR to be the internal experts on talent management. Present the HR department as a professional consulting team, equipped to provide guidance to managers and insights to company leaders.
3. Measure the results. Use predictive analytics and metrics to determine if talent-management initiatives are being implemented and are effective.
