    Companies are experiencing difficulties in hiring employees that fit the bill. The skills gap can be felt by many industries with Finance, Tech, Managerial, and Engineering positions suffering the most. This has been one of the major issues Human Resources around the globe have been dealing with since last year. To top that off, today’s talent have developed a new mind-set when it comes to work. 20th century management practices are proving increasingly ineffective with 21st century employees. With these challenges ahead, what companies need right now is to come up with strategies that can lessen the impact of the global talent shortage.

    With this in mind, Salvo’s certification program is based and titled on the highly regarded book, Talent Economics. The book has been racing up the sales charts and is being universally acclaimed as a “game changer” on talent management and strategy. Designed as a simple and practical application of economic frameworks to talent management, the course aims to innovate how to deal with talent management altogether. The course will help in identifying and resolving the most pressing talent investments that may be hindering organizations from building an outstanding talent culture. Unlike any other course, the Certified Talent Economist Program will consist of four phases in which delegates, along with the trainer, will modify their talent management strategies according to their HR needs.

    An alarming trend has been going around in the working population that is affecting organizations around the world. According to Manpower Group’s Talent Shortage Survey, 38% of employers are having difficulty filling jobs in 2015 – a two percent rise from the previous year. The biggest factor is the lack of available applicant (or no applicants at all), next to other factors such as lack of technical competencies, lack of experience, lack of workplace experience, and looking for more pay than is offered. The consistent decline in the working population has forced organizations to select from a shrinking talent pool. On top of that, retention is also becoming a problem for the department of Human Resources.

    Based on an effective mix of concept, discussion, analysis, and skills practice, the Certified Talent Economist aims to help organizations create a stronger strategic orientation to the boardroom and build a bridge between the changing needs of global business and an increasingly fluid labor force.
