25 May WORK HOLISTICALLY WITH RECRUITMENT AND TRAINING TO TACKLE TALENT SHORTAGES
This is according to Kieran King, general manager and vice president, industry, value and solutions practice at US educational technology company Skillsoft.
King was speaking at a recent roundtable at Skillsoft’s Perspectives event at which speakers discussed learning and talent developments within the workplace and research Skillsoft carried out with HR analyst The Fosway Group.
One of the recommendations from the research was that HR’s different departments work together under a more holistic and joined-up plan to meet resourcing challenges of the future.
Commenting on this point, King said HR-balanced scorecards, whereby different department’s objectives and performances are measured against the company’s business goals as a whole, need to be “fundamentally” rewritten.
“They have to have unified KPIs. Those in recruiting are looking to recruit talent and then they get evaluated and measured on how quickly they source that talent.
