HRM3007S Talent Management

Academic Year 2021/2022

This module examines the concept of ‘Talent Management’. The term ‘Talent Management’ encompasses those activities that involve the organised attraction, selection, retention, engagement and development of staff exhibiting high potential and who are of specific value to organisation. The topics covered include an introduction to strategic HRM, workforce planning, talent acquisition and retention, onboarding and talent engagement. In addition to these topics, the module will place considerable emphasis on talent development and will consider the demands for developing talent in an organisation, including needs assessment, learning theories and transfer of learning, HRD evaluation, delivery methods (e.g. training, e-learning and development), succession planning, management development and career management. The module provides for the blending of its theory and practice content. Advance preparation for classes and workshops will be an important feature, with readings and questions for reflection assigned at the commencement of the trimester.
