Tal­ent Man­age­ment FHRD’s an­nual HR Con­fer­ence theme

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

Tal­ent man­age­ment has be­come Malta’s main HR chal­lenge. The coun­try’s eco­nomic growth and in­flux of for­eign com­pa­nies have led to an in­crease in the de­mand for work­ers and the creation of new job pro­files, mak­ing the man­age­ment of tal­ent a pri­or­ity for lo­cal busi­nesses. Sixty per cent of Mal­tese com­pa­nies have iden­ti­fied mo­ti­vat­ing and re­tain­ing their staff as their top pri­or­ity for the com­ing 12 months. At the same time, only 39 per cent have a tal­ent strat­egy. This data refers to this year’s HR Pulse Sur­vey re­port, an an­nual sur­vey car­ried out jointly be­tween PWC Malta and FHRD.

The 2018 FHRD HR Con­fer­ence theme ad­dresses the salient points of how tal­ent can be man­aged and nur­tured in or­gan­i­sa­tions, how it can be lever­aged to cre­ate a pos­i­tive work­place, and how to keep tal­ent en­gaged. Manag­ing tal­ent has be­come a source of com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage for lo­cal en­ti­ties, and if man­aged well, can im­prove busi­ness per­for­mance in the long run. The suc­cess­ful man­age­ment of tal­ent is a core el­e­ment of any busi­ness strat­egy and must be fully in­te­grated within all em­ployee-re­lated pro­cesses of the or­gan­i­sa­tion. Man­age­ment and HR there­fore need to con­tinue play­ing a crit­i­cal role in help­ing busi­nesses at­tract and re­tain tal­ent.

Over the years, Malta’s an­nual HR Con­fer­ence has de­vel­oped into the largest HR event in Malta, bring­ing to­gether the is­land’s HR com­mu­nity for a day of learn­ing and net­work­ing. For this year’s edi­tion, 400 del­e­gates from a wide range of or­gan­i­sa­tions have al­ready reg­is­tered. The con­fer­ence also has a trade show run­ning in par­al­lel with more than 25 ex­hibitors of­fer­ing in­valu­able ad­vice and busi­ness so­lu­tions. As in pre­vi­ous edi­tions, FHRD has lined up a num­ber of well-es­tab­lished in­ter­na­tional key­note speak­ers, to­gether with speak­ers from lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions. Two themes by Philips and Swarovski will be de­liv­ered at the be­gin­ning and at the end of the event. In be­tween, six work­shops deal­ing with the var­i­ous facets of tal­ent will be held, to­gether with a panel of lo­cal HR lead­ers com­ing from dif­fer­ent in­dus­try sec­tors that will dis­cuss the Malta’s tal­ent sce­nario. The event will be held at the Hilton Con­fer­ence Cen­tre on 19 Oc­to­ber and is ac­cred­ited by the Malta In­sti­tute of Ac­coun­tants as per the Ac­coun­tancy Board’s CPE scheme.
