#TChat Preview: Talent Management Technology Challenges

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, November 19, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET.

Last week we talked about how global megatrends impact engagement strategy, and this week we’re going to talk about the challenges of enabling a talent management strategy with technology.

Let’s start with ERP solutions, the backbones of many global companies. Panoramic Consulting conducted a survey in 2013 for the outcomes of companies that have implemented an ERP solution. Shockingly, 53% of the respondents reported being over budget and 61% said that the time to implement was longer than they planned for.

So, how can companies alleviate these problems when it comes to their talent management strategy and technology implementations?

It all starts with an enterprise’s talent management programs and processes; if the right ones aren’t in place, no amount of software automation can help improve and drive business outcomes.

What’s clear is that any successful talent management project must start with a solid plan based on an accurate assessment of current programs and processes, and a technology solution that’s highly configurable and will help drive talent decisions and business outcomes.

Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about the challenges of enabling a talent management strategy with technology with this week’s guests: Margaret Wood, HR Generalist at Kay Flo; and Tom McKeown, Head of Sales and Marketing at HRsmart.
