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 in the contemporary and unpredictable business and social environment. Students will learn initially about HR's responsibility to advise, lead and create a workforce that can meet organisational needs while also offering psychologically rewarding work to the employees. Flowing on from these imperatives, the remainder of the course examines talent acquisition principles, processes and lawful obligations.
