Man­age­ment a to­tal approach

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - CAREER ONE -

AUS­TRALIA could learn from the US and adopt a to­tal tal­ent man­age­ment approach, Daniel Ga­van, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Im­print Global, says.

‘‘ Tal­ent man­age­ment tech­nol­ogy is used ex­ten­sively in the US be­cause it stream­lines the whole peo­ple man­age­ment process,’’ he says. ‘‘ For ex­am­ple, set­ting a clear busi­ness strat­egy will help crys­tallise the tal­ent re­quired to ex­e­cute the plan and in turn, reach the des­ig­nated goals.

‘‘ In­stead of hav­ing one tool for re­cruit­ment, an­other for ca­reer plan­ning and an­other again for re­ten­tion strate­gies, tal­ent man­age­ment sys­tems con­nect them all and bring far bet­ter out­comes than any sys­tem could pro­vide in iso­la­tion,’’ Ga­van says.

He feels tal­ent man­age­ment sys­tems are likely to be a growth area for hu­man re­sources sec­tor. The cur­rent skills short­age will aid the im­ple­men­ta­tion of new sys­tems, he says.

‘‘ The tech­nol­ogy in good tal­ent man­age­ment sys­tems should cal­cu­late re­turn on in­vest­ment, fi­nally giv­ing man­agers and ex­ec­u­tives the op­por­tu­nity to demon­strate the im­por­tance of HR to the fi­nan­cial suc­cess of the or­gan­i­sa­tion.’’
