The event relates both talent management and succession planning to overall HR and operational goals and strategies to help you attract and retain your organisation’s most talented people. You will leave with an action plan to apply this to your organisation building in both the latest thinking on the subject and your organisation’s specific needs.

Is it right for me?

The course is aimed to give a broad overview and key considerations to line managers with input to talent management and succession planning for their own departments or units, particularly the recruitment, selection, remuneration, development and retention of key people.

HR people newer to these areas are likely to benefit, however the course is not aimed at experienced HR specialists in these areas.
