Winning The War For Talent, Through Global Talent Management Integration
Global Content Area

*This program has been pre-approved for 1 global credit hour through HRCI

Multinational companies do not become global companies by simply offering their products and services to customers in multiple countries. Nor do they become truly global organizations, because they have physical locations and employees throughout the world. It is nearly impossible (and not advised) for organizations to attempt to have globally standardized general HR policies due to the necessity to comply with local laws and regulations.

However, the one area of HR where global integration has become essential is Talent Management. In order to create highly efficient and competitive global organizations, it has become necessary to integrating talent management strategies, programs and processes globally. This integration truly differentiates companies from their competitors and can greatly benefit both recruitment and retention. Taking advantage of global talent pools, developing culturally attuned global leaders and retaining high potentials by increasing career opportunities globally will greatly impact companies' ability to truly win the war on talent in our changing workforce. Ultimately positioning the company to increase their global market share and out perform their competition as we enter into an increasingly competitive global marketplace.
