Resourcing and talent planning 2010


Summary of key findings
The 2010 Resourcing and Talent Planning survey (formerly the Recruitment, Retention and Turnover survey) contains valuable information on current and emerging trends in people resourcing practice. This annual benchmarking survey is based on 480 respondent organisations from the UK and relates to the period 1 January to 31 December 2009. The year was a challenging one for many organisations as the UK experienced its worst recession since the 1930s. To understand the impact of the economic environment we include a section on resourcing in turbulent times and for the first time this year a new section on workforce planning is included.

Methodology In preparing this report, research was done through books and the internet and was based on the workings of the company I am employed by. Findings The Identification and Assessment of 4 Factors Which Can Affect an Organisation’s Approach to Attracting Talent The main factor here is Supply and Demand: * Is there a vacancy? The first point to consider is whether or not there is actually a vacancy to fill. If a current member of staff has left or is intending to leave, could the vacancy be filled by splitting the job between other current employees? This could be resolved by carrying out a job analysis gaining information from the leaver (through an exit interview) and the line manager. The opportunity could arise at this point to consider restructuring the company by promoting someone to take on more responsibility – thereby affording that employee......

...Resourcing Talent – Talent Planning in an Organisation 1. Four factors that affect an organisations approach to attracting talent are: * Expansion – A company that keeps expanding attracts a lot of new talent who want job security and promotion prospects. * Development opportunities – A company who offer learning and development opportunities will attract a lot of talent who want to learn new skills to better their career. Without training prospects a lot of talent will be lost. * Salary – A company with lower levels of salary wouldn’t attract as much talent as higher levels of pay. Workers want their hard work to reflect in their wages. * Benefits packages – A company with good benefits package also attracts talent. People want to see what the company offers to safeguard and assist their employees. 2. Three organisation benefits of attracting and retaining a diverse workforce are: * A varied array of employees means different levels of skills and knowledge, enabling each sector of an organisation to excel. * A diverse workforce means people possess different attitudes and values whether these values are derived from race, religion or even nationality. When all brought together can benefit the company when dealing with a wide range of people and even internationally. * Creativity and productivity would increase. People with different backgrounds have different ways of thinking. Enabling different views and ideas to emerge. 3....

Wide variations exist in how the term ‘talent’ is defined across differing sectors, and organizations may prefer to adopt their own interpretations rather than accepting universal or prescribed definitions. That said, it is helpful to start with a broad definition and, from our research, we have developed a working definition for both ‘talent’ and ‘talent management’:  Talent consists of those individuals who can make a difference to organizational......

Resourcing Strategy

...People Resourcing Standards | Practitioner-level Standards People Resourcing Purpose The pace of change affecting organisations shows no sign of slowing down and it has a strong impact on managerial expectations about: • employee behaviour and attitudes • corporate pressures on managerial performance • the employability potential and aspirations of labour market entrants • the criteria for success applied to those engaged in employee resourcing activities. Therefore, this elective is designed to recognise the following key points: • For any organisation to achieve its people resourcing outcomes, the people resourcing professional must be aware of the organisation’s strategic direction and be able to demonstrate that the resourcing policies, systems and procedures contribute to achieving the corporate strategic goals. • There is no guarantee that today’s organisations will exist in the indefinite future, either at all or in their present form. So this elective seeks to address the competencies that resourcing professionals are likely to need ‘everywhere and tomorrow’, rather than just ‘here and now’. • Administering employment systems in line with the law and recognised standards of fairness and good practice is important, but it doesn’t make the difference between success and failure in the market place. People resourcing professionals add real value through their contribution to the recruitment, selection, deployment, development and retention of people who themselves......

For the employer, the interview is an opportunity to: * gauge candidates’ experience, ability to perform in the role and suitability for the team * discuss details such as start dates and terms and conditions * explain the employee value proposition, including training provision and employee benefits * give the candidate a positive impression of the organisation as a good employer.

This article aims to explore, identity and explain factors that can affect an organisation’s approach to attracting talent, retaining a diverse workforce, recruitment, selection policies, the purpose, benefits of an effective induction for both individuals and organisations. 1. Identifies and assesses four factors (things) that affect an organisation’s approach to attracting talent: Demand and Supply: The demand and supply of talent in an organisation depends on the activities and nature of the business.

...impacting on business when there is an increase. Some organisations may be unable to recruit further staff due increase in wage bill • Internal factors can include o Staff turnover – promotions, retirement or even redundancy will impact on turnover and therefore create or remove positions o Business objectives/company strategy – if the business is planning on expanding it will need to factor in any recruitment needs at all levels o Wastage rates will decrease when unemployment is high, this will mean that there will be less need to recruit as staff tend to stay in their existing role due to the fear of joining those unemployed Organisational Benefits to a Diverse Workforce There are many benefits to a diverse workforce aside from the legal compliance: ➢ Enhances the organisation’s reputation and image with external stakeholders making them an employer of choice ➢ Assists in the development of new products, services and marketing strategies due the input of ideas. ➢ Builds employee commitment and morale. Employees feel valued and fairly treated ➢ Recruiting and retaining people from a wide "talent" base as the organisation has a good reputation ➢ Reduces the costs of turnover and absenteeism, due to high employee engagement.

Talent Planning

...Report on Talent Planning There are many different factors that affect an organisations approach to attracting talent and are both internal and external factors. Some examples of internal factors are the size of a business. A larger business would find it much easier to source this could be because they are more well-known to the public and they would also be more financially able to advertise a post to get a larger range of applicants. Recruitment policies also have an effect ie recruiting from internal sources and external sources can affect the recruitment process. Generally recruitment through internal sources is preferred because own employees know the organisation and can fit well into the culture. The Image of the company has influence on the recruitment process. Good image of the company earned by the actions of management helps attract potential candidates. Managerial actions like good public relations can help earn image. Image of the job also has an affect such as better salaries and good working conditions are considered the characteristics of good image of a job. Also, promotion and personal development policies of an organisation also attract potential candidates. Some examples of external factors are Demographic factors; employees have a big influence on the recruitment process. Demographic factors include, age, sex, literacy, economic status etc. Labour market conditions have an affect ie supply and demand of labour is a huge importance in affecting......
