Human Capital Institute Announces 2014 Global Talent Management Forum

Two-Day Event to Explore Effective Strategies in Managing Human Capital and Achieving Global Talent Agility

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 30, 2014) - The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global institution for strategic talent management, today announced details of the 2014 Global Talent Management Forum. Held from Monday, November 17 through Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at the Westin Beach Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the two-day event will connect attendees with the experts, strategies and technologies that can help them transform the way they manage their global talent.

In today's complex international marketplace, being competitive and successful requires the ability to identify, develop and, ultimately, retain global talent. Organizations that thrive in this fast-paced, global environment have developed an agile approach that fosters a robust multi-national talent pipeline able to support both new world leadership development programs and effective succession planning strategies. The primary goal of global talent agility is to quickly respond to the rapidly changing needs of the business with the right people, processes and technology. As such, the ability to identify future and changing business needs requires a shift in the workforce in order to respond and meet company goals.

HCI's 2014 Global Talent Management Forum is designed to address these challenges and more and help organizations achieve greater global talent agility. Through actionable case studies, peer-to-peer networking, educational workshop sessions and keynotes from today's leading experts on global talent management, attendees will learn how they can attract the right employees with the right skills at the right place and time. The forum will focus on three main areas necessary to achieving global talent agility: succession planning, developing high potentials and building a strong pipeline of talent.

Highlights of the session agenda include engaging and informative keynotes from Melissa Daimler, head of Organizational Effectiveness & Learning at Twitter; Cynthia Palumbo, vice president of Global Talent Management & Development at MasterCard; and Melissa Del Broccolo, director of HR Capability Building, and Lisa Berlin, director of HR Talent Management & Development, both of Johnson & Johnson.

"As more employers look to the global workforce to grow their companies and achieve competitive advantage, they face a number of challenges in not only acquiring top talent, but delivering effective employee development," said Carl Rhodes, HCI's chief executive officer. "Our Global Talent Management Forum is designed to connect attendees with the ideas, processes and technologies that can demystify the challenges of managing talent around the world. As a result, attendees can learn what they can do to achieve the level of global talent agility necessary for continuous success."
