October 25-26, Alexandria, VA
As federal agencies face the new challenges of an environment of expanding missions, shrinking resources, greater accountability, and increased expectations, their HR, training and management professionals are being asked to ensure that their talent capacity adapts to changing priorities, changing focus, and even changing mission over the long term. Strategic talent management, which provides a framework and infrastructure to acquire, develop, and manage the talents of an agency workforce, is becoming a top priority.
Our partners at The American Society for Training and Development are now offering a new certificate program to help these federal employees tackle the challenges head on. Managing Talent for Mission Success is two-day, highly interactive workshop that provides an in-depth examination of the latest ideas, the most innovative strategies, and the best practices in strategic Talent Management with a focus on how to best apply them within the Federal human resources framework.
Facilitated by Barbara Hulick and Paul Longanbach, this workshop will provide an overview of the talent management process and functions. Participants will be guided through am exploration of a six step process, specifically catered to their own roles and organizations:
1. Define organizational strategy linked to human capital goals and objectives.
2. Identify knowledge, skill, and experience needs to enable organization strategy.
3. Recruit, hire, and onboard employees with required knowledge, skills, and experience.
4. Establish and sustain a “talent friendly” work culture to support high performance and commitment.
5. Deploy a planning process to ensure succession readiness for mission critical occupations.
6. Develop an infrastructure to support and continuously improve talent management, including career planning.
Complimentary registration is available for interested individuals. Seating is limited to ensure the most impactful experience for participants. Please RSVP by contacting Tanya Rivera at [email protected].
