Most CEO’s know that people are their most important asset. However, a recent survey by PwC found that 90% of CEO’s don’t believe that their talent strategies are aligned with their business strategies – which means that they don’t feel they’re getting the most from their people.
What can HR do to help? HR must rise above the day-to-day, become more strategic, and define the organization’s talent strategy.
What should be included in a talent strategy?
Strategic Workforce Plan – What people do we need to reach our goals in the future?
Talent Acquisition Plan – How will you identify attract, and hire the people you need to be successful?
Talent Management Plan – Learning and development, deployment and delivery.
Talent Retention Plan – outline employee engagement goals, rewards and succession planning goals.
Talent Analytics Component – Finding the levers that can be used to make good people decisions.
Put these 5 components together to make a talent strategy and add that to the overall business strategy to drive superior business performance. That’s what CEO’s are looking for from HR.
