In this session, you will hear a combination of the latest research and best and next practices from leading organizations on the role the learning and development staff is increasingly playing in the integrated talent management movement. As a starting point, the group will discuss the top-level findings from ASTD’s recently published report, “Learning’s Critical Role in Integrated Talent Management,” including information on how high-performing and low-performing organizations use talent management differently. You will also gain information on which organizational roles are primarily responsible for the key elements of talent management: leadership development, individual development, performance management, employee learning, recruitment/selection, employee engagement, compensation and benefits, and succession planning. And you’ll hear about learning’s role in each area.
