Creating Strong Links: Connecting Strategy, Talent Management, and Organizational Outcomes
Presenters: William A. Schiemann, Metrus Group
Wayne A. Cascio, University of Colorado-Denver
Steve Ginsburgh, Universal Weather and Aviation
Coordinator: Mindy Bergman, Texas A&M University
Traditional HR processes have often been conducted in separate silos such as selection, training, or turnover. However, I-O practitioners should be creating a strategic approach to talent management that spans the employee lifecycle. This workshop will take a look at how organizational strategy can drive talent management priorities and the selection of indicators of organizational, functional, and individual performance. This session is intended to increase strategic thinking regarding the applications of I-O capabilities across the talent management lifecycle. The session will focus on how to optimize human capital to drive business and employee success. Real-world examples will be used to demonstrate these issues. The session will focus on how one growth company has successfully leveraged talent management as a competitive advantage by applying many of these concepts in their organization.
This workshop is designed to help participants:
1. Describe different strategy typologies and how they influence important employee, customer, and financial metrics
2. Use strategy maps to capture the value proposition of an organization or function (e.g., HR)
3. Use balanced scorecards and HR metrics to accelerate strategy execution and to inform strategic decisions about talent
4. Create models to optimize human capital investments and drive important employee and business outcomes
5. Utilize logic models to connect human capital to organizational success.
Target Audience: Internal and external practitioners/consultants who support or desire to support senior executives. There is no experience requirement for this workshop.
