Latest CIPD research on trends in Talent Management30th Apr, 2009
The latest CIPD report on trends in talent management in the UK makes interesting reading. It reports “ a number of surprising positives” including:
1) “Organisations are focussing more of the time engaging, motivating, retaining and fully using the skills of their existing workforce”.
2) “Uncertain times, for the most part have led to more honest and frequent communications between managers and employers”.
3.” A great emphasis is being placed on ethical leaders who are able to motivate and lead in both the bad and the good times”.
The reports suggests that to accomplish these objectives organisations are introducing new development programmes including “a greater emphasis on leadership development” and focussing on the themes of:
People and performance management
Decision making and difficult conversations
Coaching and mentoring line managers
Training managers to act as coaches to their teams.
Trust and authentic leadership
