HRCI Credit Approval


Workshop Overview

Itís a big number. Over 10,000 American workers become age-eligible for retirement DAILY. And as hiring improves in the wake of the Great Recession, both public and private organizations find themselves challenged to provide enough highly qualified people to fill their pipelines.

In addition to competing for the best available talent, organizations must also execute strategies to capture critical organizational knowledge and retain the best in their workforce.

Hereís where you come in. If youíre in HR, you are likely being asked to not only fulfill the traditional roles of human resource management, but to also add strategic value to the organization.

If you are in the C-suite, you are likely being asked to ensure your pipelines are filled with available talent to address the workforce gaps that exist now, as well as projecting and planning for future ones.

Making Talent Management Strategic: Winning the War for Critical Talent is a workshop that addresses these issues with some of the countryís most experienced talent management practitioners. Your attendance ensures a hands-on opportunity to learn how to develop a strategic approach to organizational performance.

For as little as $775.00 (early bird rate - standard registration is $850), you will utilize information you bring to the session regarding your workforce requirements to focus on applicable solutions you can implement in your environment.

This workshop is designed for strategy leaders in human capital management focusing on the link between strategic HR and business and organization strategies.

Making Talent Management Strategic: Winning the War for Critical Talent provides processes that work in any organization, regardless of size or industry.

Join us in Portland, Oregon on February 25 and 26, 2015 and learn how you can help your organization win the war for critical talent.
