Talent management is a broad concept that refers to the processes that organisations use to attract, retain, motivate and develop its people, for now and for the future. In this course, students examine how organisations can design and use talent management initiatives to enhance performance by motivating, developing and rewarding people. Students will have the opportunity to improve their management knowledge as they examine how training, development and performance management are contributors to achieving the business strategy. Further, it is recognised that sometimes things go wrong with the performance or conduct of a person or people within the organisation. This course considers approaches to managing these issues if they arise. Further talent management initiatives of attracting people to work for the organisation are examined in MGT2000 Workforce Design.
