3 Talent Pools to Tap With Flex Work

3 Talent Pools to Tap With Flex Work | Talent Management | Scoop.it
Want to “cast a wider net,” tap new talent sources and hire a more diverse workforce?
Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

"When you make work virtual, you automatically (and exponentially) broaden your talent pool. Instead of being forced to recruit within a 20-mile radius or pay hefty relocation fees, telecommuting allows you to tap talent from coast-to-coast — or even around the globe."

CLOs Are a CFO's Best Friend

CLOs Are a CFO's Best Friend | Talent Management | Scoop.it
As chief financial officers’ roles change, a skills gap likely will create a financial leadership shortage. This will affect CLOs and future business models.
Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

"While learning leaders help current financial executives fill any skills gaps in their own ranks, they also should plan for the future by helping CFOs hire or identify new potential successors and then groom them to reflect a desired culture and set of skills and values."

Blended learning is evolving — tactics and technology must evolve with it.
Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

Elliott Masie weighing in on blended learning.

"The future will offer some exciting extensions in the blended learning arena as we add adaptive and responsive capabilities to learning design. Imagine a system that could track what you as a learner need in terms of learning options. Throughout a course, it could offer you an extended video, a link to a key peer with expertise, the ability to read the content in your native language, or the opportunity to access a dynamic FAQ developed by monitoring other users’ blended learning activity."

Close the Skills Gap — Once and for All

Close the Skills Gap — Once and for All | Talent Management | Scoop.it
Companies are to blame for the perpetual, pervasive skills gap. But changing recruitment strategies and investing in onboarding and ongoing training can help.
Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

Nice piece on the skills gap from Donna Wells: 

"Hiring managers need to accept that 85 percent of new hires won’t have the hard skills required for a job on day one. Companies need to reinvest some of the savings from hiring faster and eliminating third-party recruiting expenses into skills training required for success in a role."

Self-Directed or Employer-Managed Learning: A False Choice? | Talent Management | Scoop.it
With arguments pushing for one side or the other, blogger David Vance asks why learning leaders can't embrace both.
Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

"Why not take advantage of both employer and employee-directed learning? Encourage employees to take advantage of all the great content available now and easily accessible outside the employee’s organization, especially for their own unique interests. Likewise, encourage informal learning within the organization like knowledge sharing and mentorship."

While salary is important, I would not underestimate the power of training and development to keep employees engaged.  If you're not investing in the development of your top talent, don't be surprised when they leave.

Building a Truly Global Organization

Building a Truly Global Organization | Talent Management | Scoop.it
Leaders working abroad are not the only ones who should take advantage of global development options. Corporate universities have what it takes to provide the necessary skills.
Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

Nice piece on developing global leaders from CLO Magazine:

"Confining global training to people active internationally is also inappropriate because global issues have become a part of everyone’s job — those who work aboard and those who stay in the home country. Increasingly, most employees within organizations interact with people of different nationalities daily. Therefore, to be effective, global training programs have to include the entire organization."

Why You May Never Know If Your Boss Thinks You’ve Got Potential

Why You May Never Know If Your Boss Thinks You’ve Got Potential | Talent Management | Scoop.it

"Managers are on the hunt for employees with the potential to be the next marketing executive, top salesperson or digital guru. But even as firms experiment with new ways of finding hidden talent in their organization, many don’t let prospects know they’re considered future stars."

Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

Interesting post in the WSJ about HiPo talent.  

 

Our own HiPo reseach project from 2013 confirms that many companies do a poor job identifying and developing HiPo leaders.  You can find the full report on the website.

CEOs invest in learning when they see a payoff.

For Women, Perception Is Everything | 2015-09-17 | CLOmedia

For Women, Perception Is Everything | 2015-09-17 | CLOmedia | Talent Management | Scoop.it

A 2015 analysis of S&P 500 companies conducted by nonprofit research firm Catalyst reveals women make up 4.6 percent of CEO jobs, though they constitute 45 percent of the workforce. The disparity is significant. It’s no secret that women often achieve successful outcomes on par with their male peers.

Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

"According to a 2014 Pew Research Center study, most Americans believe that women register just as high as men on leadership traits such as intelligence, creativity and innovation. This same study also showed that 43 percent believe women are held back from top jobs because they are held to a higher standard than men."

Don't Undervalue Older Workers

Use flexible work arrangements to turn these valuable people into a coterie of in-house coaches and mentors.
Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

"While many organizations work with younger workers to create career-path resources, many do not understand the value of creating similar programs to help workers at midcareer or late-career stages. Mature workers in particular may be interested in learning about lateral moves that could allow them to apply their existing skills in new ways."

"Learning is also now following in IT footsteps in adapting agile techniques where appropriate, even for projects that are not tied to IT but need to become more nimble.

"Learning leaders can help senior leaders develop a clear, aligned and agreed-upon synthesis of the mindsets, skill sets and behaviors required to build a successful 21st century company. To translate this leadership model into skills, learning leaders can build programs that are powerful learning journeys over time, rather than traditional training events."

Thoughtful piece on managing the multi-generational workforce.

 

"An EY survey revealed that, from 2008 to 2013, 'both during and coming out of the recession, there has been a significant shift in Gen Y and Gen X moving into management roles: 87 percent of Gen Y managers surveyed moved into a management role during this period vs. 38 percent of Gen X and 19 percent of boomer managers.' This trend may cause some leaders to worry that their older employees may resent their younger managers, among the other challenges that age diversity can bring."
