Register for Building from Within: Harnessing the Power of an Internal Talent Pool

The Challenge:

Creating a culture of continuous learning and development is essential for building the next generation of leaders. One way to achieve this is through the creation of an internal talent marketplace. To allow an internal talent pool to become impactful and a competitive advantage for a business, leaders must overcome obstacles around data management and collection, employee buy-in and engagement, and integration with existing HR systems, all whilst working with limited budgets and resources.  

Digital Incubator Discussion Points:  

  • Defining the scope of an internal marketplace – how to determine which job opportunities will be included, who will be able to access them, and how will it integrate with existing HR systems.  
  • Gathering data – what data is required and how best to collate it? 
  • How can we effectively match the competencies of internal employees to the requirements of specific job roles when building talent pools from within the organization? 
  • How to align an internal talent marketplace with the company’s overall performance management and talent development programs?  
  • What specifics should be included to develop the next generation of leaders internally, and how to action effective succession planning?  

Digital Incubator Outcomes:  

  • Access to the different approaches to take to build an internal talent pool dependent on organization size and resources available.  
  • Know how to track internal usage and use the data available to you to make improvements.  
  • Guidance on how to set metrics to measure success.  
  • Test and launch – access to a playbook on key considerations before going live.
