An important work in the now critical discipline of human capital management.
We're at the brink of the next global battle in the war for talent, and companies with a firm grasp on today's technologies, and the best view over the horizon, are positioned to win. No one understands the intersection of talent and technology better than Allan Schweyer and, as this book demonstrates, no one tells us the story as clearly as he.
Talent builds world-class products and services, nurtures customer relationships, invents new processes and improves existing ones. Talent inspires, coaches, and leads. Talent builds an organizations reputation, and over time companies of all stripes will or won't become valuable because of their talent. To survive in the knowledge economy over the long term, organizations must become focused on managing talent as their most critical resource, and must turn to modern human resources technologies in order to manager their workforce as carefully as they would any physical asset.
Talent Management Systems explains the transformation Web-based technologies have brought to workforce acquisition and management. It examines proven and leading-edge best practices that can improve your organization's ability to expertly attract, recruit, motivate, develop, and retain staff. And it reveals the tactics and strategies organizations can use to remain competitive in this arena, including:
Building a career site on the corporate intranet
Specialized recruitment sites
Automated screening, sorting, and ranking of candidates
Building skill libraries and profiling competencies
Online assessment and testing
Selecting the right Talent Management System for the job, and choosing a TMS vendor
Legal, ethical and fairness concerns in e-recruitment
