Aligning Talent Strategy To A Company-Wide Business Strategy

SmartSearch partners with Andy Rice, Principal and Lead Strategist at Black Box Consulting for an educational presentation on best practices for aligning talent strategy with an overarching business strategy.

OCEANSIDE, CA January 9, 2017 – Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS), the makers of SmartSearch®, announces the first Smart Practices webinar of 2017 in its series for recruiters, staffing and human resources professionals. On Thursday, February 16, 2017 at 9am PST / Noon EST, featured guest speaker, Andy Rice, Principal and Lead Strategist at Black Box Consulting will discuss best practices for how and why companies should align their human capital strategy with their organization’s greater business strategy.

This presentation is well-suited for corporate recruiting departments that want to be more strategic, and contains useful knowledge for staffing agencies that would like to be more proactive in supporting their clients. The items to be discussed include: the components of a talent strategy, the framework for an integrated talent management business approach, how to perform a talent management discipline review, how to perform talent strategy alignment and why talent acquisition can benefit from this plan.

“Talent is without a doubt a company’s most precious asset and it should be on every company’s radar. Taking a hard look into today’s business strategy and how future human capital acquisitions and internal talent programs will impact an organization’s ability to stay competitive and solvent are critical components for a present and future business strategy,” states Doug Coull, CEO, APS.

“Many companies develop HR and Talent Acquisition programs because their competitors have them or because they hear about them at a conference. With Talent Strategy Alignment, HR can provide their business with a strategic advantage by developing programs that are custom designed to provide the talent their business needs to meet their short- and long-term strategic objectives,” cites Andy Rice.
