About the course
How can managers properly identify talents for their companies? How to understand the unique characteristics of each type of talent? How to transform subjective “soft” judgment into objective “hard” criteria? How to attract, foster, retain and develop top talents? As “talent creates benefits”, a team of talented people constitutes a major source of competitiveness for a business. It has been a significant challenge for managers to manage talents in an effective and sustainable way. This programme focuses on the business benefits of taking talent seriously, guides participants to recognize key factors of successful talent management, provides them with a variety of tools, models, methods and strategies pertaining to effective talent management, and helps them diagnose, design, assess, implement, cultivate and evaluate talent management with practical “techniques”.
