Report Reveals Need for Total Talent Management
from the Turning Good People Into Top Talent blog series
Today, organizations use many types of workers, including temporary workers, contractors, volunteers, and even robots.
A recent report, conducted in collaboration between Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) and ERE Media, the preeminent source for information about talent acquisition and talent management, found that 16% was the median usage of non-employed workers—for some, it was as high as 50%.
The report concluded that the lack of information about their total workforce makes it more difficult for organizations to find and retain top talent.
The SIA and ERE findings indicate that few organizations understand the true make-up of their organization and how to best engage and motivate their non-employed workforce. Thus, the time is right for a Total Talent Management (TTM) approach.
To better address their most pressing workforce challenges, especially in today’s more complex business environment, a holistic and proactive approach to talent acquisition and talent management is needed.
John Nurthen, Executive Director of Global Research at SIA and one of the authors of the report, commented, “In our research we found that, surprisingly, many aren’t yet interested in taking a ‘Total Talent Management’ approach. And even if they are interested, overwhelmingly, they are not prepared to do so.”
Look for an upcoming blog that will have the elements required for an effective Total Talent Management system.
