Next Gen Talent
4-5 November 2010, London, UK
Everything we know about work – where we work, how we work, who we work with, the technologies we use – is changing and those changes will continue to accelerate.
Shift Happens! We live in unprecedented and exponential times: gender, generational and cultural diversity and technological advancement each place new demands for how employers communicate, collaborate and connect with employees. Talent leaders need to re-think and re-imagine functions such as recruiting, corporate learning and leadership development and to expand their skill sets to include functions from other jobs such as finance, marketing and IT. Next Gen Talent research and design will share and explore new ways to find and keep one of the most important ingredients for organizational success, Talent.
Being ready to manage tomorrow’s top performers with tomorrow’s techniques and tactics is going to be critical. The aspirations, values and expectations of the workforce are changing and those companies that fail to meet the challenge will likely find themselves lacking the critical talent they need to compete as viable businesses. With four generations in the workforce, managing the diversity of knowledge and experience is going to be a competitive advantage.
Next Gen Talent 2010 will address some of these issues and look for “best fit” rather than “best practice” allowing attendees to craft differentiated approaches to people management in their organisations that best suit their circumstances and their culture.
