“With the digital transformation of business, talent management is also witnessing a paradigmatic shift in its tenets and practices. People engagement and people analytics are the buzzwords in HR practice today. Since a behavioral shift and broadening of ‘mindsets’ of companies and their management afoot, this calls for an overhauling of the workforce and their work ethic towards building ‘embedded’ trust and providing seamless communication,” said Prof D Tripati Rao, Chairperson, Executive Education (MDP), IIM Lucknow.
Vikas Gupta, MD, Wiley India said that a data-driven talent management strategy will become a core competency. “Organisations are gradually realising the importance of data analytics, design thinking, and machine learning to design an effective talent strategy. Our executive programme in talent analytics will build a problem-solving mindset, and solve real-world business challenges.”
