Talent Management Practice

Senior executives often claim that their most important asset is their people. In alignment with that, whether we are in a good economic climate or bad economic climate, one thing remains a constant focus in HR departments - the importance of retaining and growing key talent. By retaining key talent, organizations are better equipped to achieve their ultimate goal - to execute its business strategy and continue to grow the organization.

As an intricate part of keeping key talent engaged, organizations must have a well defined talent management strategy in place and an integrative system to support it. Integrated talent management processes can help you quickly find the best people for your business, effectively develop and leverage their talent, align their efforts with your corporate objectives, and retain your top performers. Wikipedia defines talent management as “referring to the process of developing and integrating new workers, developing and retaining current workers, and attracting highly skilled workers to work for a company.” As an integral part of the design of your talent management strategy and the integrative system to support it is an individual’s competencies -- the competencies individuals bring to an organization (recruitment), the competencies which are developed to meet the needs of a current job (learning and development) or competencies required in a future job (succession planning), competencies they are evaluated on (performance management), and competencies they might be paid for based on the level of achievement or overall skill-set (compensation).

Whether an organization chooses to purchase a pre-established competency model or develop one in-house, it is important to work closely with an experienced consultant who has a deep understanding of both the strategy and functionality of the talent management offering. The SAP Talent Management suite includes competency management, SAP E-Recruiting, SAP Enterprise Learning (also SAP Learning Solution), SAP Talent Visualizations by Nakisa (succession management), performance management, compensation management, and talent management analytics. An experienced consultant can help ensure all of the integration points are taken into consideration in the design. This will ensure a more integrated and less administrative model that can grow with the organization and strategy.

Let ARK Solutions help you define your talent management strategy and execute on it with functionality that is fully integrated with SAP ERP Human Capital Management. Your focus needs to be on finding and retaining the best people, and developing and leveraging their talent, in order to continue to grow your organization. ARK’s focus is to successfully get you there.
