Zircon are Launching Talent Management Research

January 6th, 2012 by Ruth Leave a reply »

What does Talent Management mean to organisations, now and in the future?

At Zircon we are currently conducting research (to be completed by March 2012) into how Talent Management is perceived by employees of public, private and non-profit organisations. Zircon are working to learn more about how companies approach Talent Management. The aim of the research is to fully understand how organisations perceive their talent management strategy, its importance and applicability, and the level of return on investment.

We are in the process of inviting and interviewing HR Managers responsible for Talent Management practices, and also Line Managers and Directors who are recipients of these practices from multinational corporations.

We are covering the following topics:

• How do you define Talent Management?
• How important is Talent Management?
• How strategic and planned are your efforts?
• How sustainable are your Talent Management practices?
• How do you measure success?
• How do your Talent Management initiatives create competitive advantage?

Both qualitative and quantitative data is being collected and we are preparing a talent report summarizing the key findings which will be disseminated through conferences and events to share the results found.
