This programme is taking place online. The cost of the programme is £1,650 (+VAT) for CRF members and £3,300 (+VAT) for non-members.

At CRF, we like to ensure that our content is as relevant and up-to-date as possible, so we have remodelled the focus of the content in this talent programme, to recognise and react to one of the key challenges in the talent space emerging from the past 18 months. Covid has exposed needs which will leave a permanent mark on how we attract, retain and get the best out of talent in a hybrid working world.

Talent continues to be vital to current and future business performance. Yet research and experience consistently suggests that our talent management approaches are not delivering the business outcomes we want, in the timescales we need, and at a cost we can afford.

Three principles are fundamental to making talent management work:

  • Talent needs must be firmly rooted in the context of the business strategy and operating environment.
  • Solutions should be integrated, with different elements prioritise and aligned around talent needs.
  • Data should be used to develop and apply insights and to evaluate the effectiveness of talent management approaches

This programme builds on these principles, pulling them into an Integrated Talent Management Framework.

Benefits of Attending:
You will:

  • Build a framework to help you develop more business-focused talent thinking
  • Update your knowledge of talent trends, and exchange learnings with your peers
  • Acquire a means of engaging your business leadership in the importance of the talent agenda
  • Receive advice and support to develop your confidence and influence in talent discussions

Your organisation will:

  • Receive input and tools to test, validate and challenge existing talent management approaches
  • Develop strategies to segment, prioritise and align HR activity to best support business outcomes
  • Learn how to better develop talent insights and demonstrate talent management effectiveness
  • Improve strategy execution through more business-focused and effective talent management

Who Should Attend?
Heads of Talent, Talent Partners, Talent Consultants, Senior HR Business Partners and senior generalists with a talent interest. If you are working at talent strategy level, are actively involved with talent, and/or interact with senior business stakeholders across more than one people process area, this programme will inform, challenge and develop your talent thinking and practice.

The cost of the programme is £1,650 (+VAT) for CRF members and £3,300 (+VAT) for non-members.

The Programme in Detail

DAY 1 – 2
You will be introduced to the Integrated Talent Management Framework and guided through a series of stages.

  • An introduction to ‘Integrated Talent Management’ thinking.
  • Part 1: Need – explore how integrated talent management thinking is anchored in business need and informed by external context. Understand how these create implications for people capability and talent segmentation. Identify talent dependencies for effective strategy execution early on.
  • Part 2: Plan – understand talent capability gaps. Identify talent strategy priorities and develop segmented talent propositions and approaches to address them.
  • Part 3: Activity – create and implement integrated talent activity across the employee life cycle and people process areas aligned to strategic talent priorities.
    • How do we talk about talent?
    • Critical talent and talent reviews
    • How do we assess talent?
    • How do we develop talent?
    • How do we retain talent?
  • Part 4: Talent Climate – how does the environment we create around our talent approaches help or hinder their effectiveness?
  • Action Planning – draw together and distil critical insights collected over the three mornings. Evaluate against your current talent strategy and prioritise actions to work on before the follow-on day.

Between Sessions
You will be encouraged to share your insights with HR colleagues and business stakeholders when you return to your organisation. You will have the opportunity to develop conversations and identify any potential changes in talent management approaches based upon your learnings.

DAY 3 (follow-on session)
Three-months after the initial two-days, you will return for a 90 minute follow-on, action session.
