Every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover talent development to find the very best talent development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to pieces about talent management as the basis for workforce planning, the gamification of training, and three looks at the future of HR and talent development.
“The folks at Bersin & Associates define workforce planning as the: ‘…set of business processes for analyzing the supply and demand of talent within an organization, and how that supply and demand might change over time.’ However the Bersin team also say it’s one of the least defined HR functions.”
“by using gamification principles, Deloitte has seen use of its Deloitte Leadership Academy (DLA) training program increase. Participants, who are spending increased amounts of time on the site and completing programs in increasing numbers, show almost addictive behavior. Since the integration of gamification in to Deloitte Leadership Academy, there has been a 37 percent increase in the number of users returning to the site each week.”
“What changes does 2013 have in store for the world of HR? To start the New Year we’ll run a series of blog posts that explores six themes we believe are sure to take center stage in 2013. Some are just emerging and others are re-emerging or coming into their own, but we predict that all of them will be quite important over the coming year. Watch and prepare for them!”
“In January of 2012 I wrote a post called A Look Ahead: Predictions for 2012 (Snappy title huh?) Well it turns out I was pretty correct. It also turns out that 2013 will most likely be more of the same. So here are my HR predictions for 2013.”
“It’s that time of year for resolutions, predictions, and reflections back on all that has happened during this past year. Of all of these, it is the New Year’s predictions that are both the most interesting AND the most difficult to get your hands around. After all, who has a crystal ball that works well enough to help us get a good fix on the future, anyway?”
