Data Driven Decisions on Talent to Become the Norm, Not the Exception

A new whitepaper, ‘The Future of Talent Management’ from MHR - the leading provider of talent management, HR, payroll and business analytics - suggests that data driven decisions on talent will soon become the norm, not the exception.

Rapid business change, new specialised roles and intense competition mean organisations are increasingly striving to find the right social tools to improve engagement, collaboration and continuous feedback and enable them to use employer brand to attract the best talent.

Author of the whitepaper, Chris Kerridge, Business Analyst at MHR, comments: “As the workplace changes to become borderless, the need to access information and to manage employees and applicants will increase. Employees are taking ownership of their own succession planning and career development but expect ‘the Amazon experience’, the individualisation of information to help support their decisions, which in turn are becoming more data driven.

“The transformation to a knowledge based economy and increasing demands for innovation and adaptability means organisations will need to transform to an agile workforce, supporting and encouraging the dynamic capabilities of their people, cultivating a growth mind-set and adapting to change.

“With the technological shift to support talent management, the focus for the managers can then be to have good conversations with their people. Having those good conversations on roles and career development sends a message that the employee is valued and has the potential to develop within their organisation.”
