Survey: Little Consensus on Talent Management Strategy

Philadelphia — Nov. 8

Only 12 percent of organizations have a fully implemented talent management strategy, according to a survey of 537 U.S. companies by Right Management, the talent and career management unit within ManpowerGroup.

The survey found that little consensus has developed regarding talent management strategy. Twenty-five percent of companies said they have created such a strategy but face challenges with its implementation.

Similarly, 7 percent reported having a strategy but described it as merely a statement of objectives or philosophy. The largest group (44 percent) reported that they have a series of separate HR processes that are not integrated as a true talent management strategy.

Right Management conducted a survey of 537 senior managers and human resource professionals during the first quarter of 2012.
