Talent management is a broad concept that refers to the processes that organisations use to attract, motivate and develop its people, for now and for the future. In this course, students examine how the success of any business rests upon an alliance between talent management, organisational strategy and workforce planning. Students will learn about HR's responsibility to design a workforce that can meet organisational needs by examining the principles and processes associated with planning for an equipped workforce. Much of this course is devoted to examining talent acquisition initiatives and processes. The added talent management initiatives of motivating and developing employees for an equipped workforce are examined in MGT2004 Enhancing Performance.
