10/10/13: Top Talent Development Posts this Week

October 10, 2013 by Wally Bock

Every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover talent development to find the very best talent development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to pieces on global recruiting challenges, pegs and holes, when your top talent doesn’t perform and delivering a better recruiting experience.

From HRE Online: HR Leaders Speak Out on Global-Recruiting Challenges

“Sharing their experiences and challenges — from needing to be better aware of recruiting cultures and characteristics to finding ways to communicate more effectively with candidates and recruiters in non-English countries — were Chris Hoyt, director of global talent engagement and marketing for PepsiCo; Maureen Neglia, vice president of global talent and recruitment for Manulife Financial; Kent Kirch, global director of talent acquisition and mobility for Deloitte; and Danielle Monaghan, HR partner director, technology services for Cisco Systems.”

From Kathy Rapp: Are you Trying to Fit The Talent To The Role?

“A recent gathering of Houston’s CHRO’s had some oil and gas leaders bantering about talent, specifically the challenge of changing demographics alongside current leaders.  An insightful statement was made to the effect of, ‘Are we trying to shave off the squared edges to make the ‘new’ talent pegs fit into existing round holes?'”

From Dan Carusi: What do you do with your top talent when they stop performing?

“No matter what we do, there will be periods of time when our top talent does not perform at the level expected.  It’s human nature and there will be some good runs and some that are not so good.  So we need to “coach” them by teaching, developing and inspiring them to be successful.  Instead of beating the crap out of them and threatening to let them go, help them understand what is impacting their performance, remove obstacles they may be running into, foster a culture where they can be successful and motivate them to return back to their winning ways.”

From Susan R. Meisinger: Delivering a Better Experience

“Though the winners of the 2013 Candidate Experience Awards won’t be announced until next week, an analysis of the materials submitted for this year’s competition reveals a number of best practices that can have a huge and positive impact on not only the employer brand, but the HR brand, too.”
