Technological, demographic, and socioeconomic forces are disrupting business models and driving changes in the nature of work and organizations.  These changes have potentially important and widespread implications for talent, which is causing many organizations to take a step back and reexamine their talent management strategies and practices. Some of the questions currently being explored include how to create a more integrated talent management strategy, whether to adopt a regional, functional, global, or hybrid model, and, of course, how to address current or anticipated gaps in the talent pipeline.

At this meeting we will discuss the topics below but also leave plenty of time for other topics to emerge over the course of the day:                 

  • What changes or disruptions do you anticipate over the next several years as a result of technological, demographic, and/or socioeconomic trends? What are the potential implications of these changes for your talent strategy?
  • Do you have a regional, functional, or global model?  What do you see as the strengths and challenges of your current model?
  • Do you have an integrated talent management approach that covers different types (e.g., technical, managerial) and levels (e.g., early career, senior) of talent? 
  • Are end-to-end experiences vital to your talent strategy?  Why or why not?  How might these experiences impact your retention, engagement, and pipeline strategies? 
  • What are the key analytics you use to monitor the impact of your talent efforts and inform your future talent strategy? 

With that background, we are pleased to invite your company to participate in this Talent Strategy working group hosted by Archer Daniels Midland at their global headquarters in Chicago.  Attendees should have responsibility for helping to define their organizations talent strategy.  The meeting agenda will allow for ample time for interaction and networking something we consider critical to the goal of our working groups.

The sessions are free of charge to CAHRS partner firms.  To effectively create the right environment and to ensure free and open discussion, we limit the size of the meeting to 25 participants. 
This working group will run from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm with a continental breakfast starting at 8:30 am and working lunch.  The best fit for the meeting would be members of the Talent COE or other members of the HR team who have been helping to shape their organizations talent strategy.
