HORSHAM, Pa. (January 4, 2011) — With the economy starting to regain its footing, savvy companies are assessing whether they have the right leaders and successors in place to stay ahead of the pack. The Second Annual Human Resource Executive Forum®, happening March 14-16, 2011, at the Grand Hyatt New York, is the place for high-level professionals to find strategies to excel in this HR effort and many others. The event, produced by Human Resource Executive® magazine, features open and insightful discussions on Talent Management, HR Technology, HR Leadership, Recruiting and Benefits.
From the latest approaches for retaining the right talent to best practices in performance management, Talent Management is the cornerstone to surviving and succeeding in today's business environment. "The Forum is a great opportunity to compare experiences with experts and practitioners who are coping with the challenges of the slow economic recovery," said Peter Cappelli, George W. Taylor Professor of Management and director of the Center for Human Resource Management at The Wharton School/University of Pennsylvania.
During this economic recovery, as employers are forced to do more with less, the onus is on managers and supervisors to hold employees accountable and correct poor performance. In the Talent Management keynote, Cappelli will build off of his latest research to reveal a sound framework for solving the top performance-management challenges organizations are facing today.
"We will talk through how to deal with the most persistent performance management challenge, and that is what to do about employees who have performance problems," said Cappelli, who also writes HREOnline™’s monthly Talent Management column.
In another talent management session, leadership guru Kevin Cashman, senior partner at Korn/Ferry International, will guide a panel of top HR executives sharing strategies and approaches they’ve used to ensure their organizations are leaders and not followers when it comes to having the right talent in place at every turn.
