Introductory Programme


The ability to identify and select the most effective methods by which to develop and retain talent is highly desirable for companies and people professionals. By managing talent based on evidence and data, organisations can build a high-performance workplace, foster a learning culture, add value to their employer brand, improve social mobility and increase diversity.

Talent management seeks to attract, identify, develop, engage, retain and deploy individuals who are considered particularly valuable. Talent management strategies should align with organisational goals and objectives and mitigate future capability risks. People professionals with talent management expertise look beyond boundaries to work with diverse talent pools and partner organisations.

This course will equip you with an introduction to talent management and how to maximise potential through talent identification, engagement and planning. It will help you to identify the optimum talent management approach in your context and how to implement it to achieve organisational goals.

  • describe what is meant by talent management
