BUILDING INTERNAL TALENT MANAGEMENT CAPABILITY
How well do your directors and managers manage talent? How well does your HR function support talent management? Taking talent management from an exercise in compliance (with the associated tick box mentality) to one of commitment, requires managers and HR teams to have both the will and skill to follow through on agreed actions.
HR professionals are often seen as the providers of development to others, whilst paying little attention to their own needs. With the growing perception that HR functions need to get better, businesses need to understand that to do this, a little investment in the development of HR will go a long way.

As specialists in this area, Jackson Samuel were asked to design a best practice workshop on having ‘successful conversations’.
