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.
Professionals recommended to attend the certification course – but not limited to – are those who have direct client contact and have senior positions that may influence strategy. This includes senior HR roles such as Business Partners; Heads of Talent Management, L&D, Resourcing, Rewards, HR services; Senior Managers in business, strategy, functional or general management; Independent Consultants in the area of HR, strategy, and leadership development; Academics in the strategy or HR disciplines; and Policy Makers in government bodies who work on the nation’s talent agenda.
Gyan Nagpal, award winning talent strategist and commentator, will be leading the course. Over the last decade, he has helped some of the world’s largest and most ambitious organisations build significant business franchises across the Asia Pacific region.
