Talent Management Strategies - The focus of upcoming speakers series

- Fostering high potential employees for improved succession planning

TORONTO, Nov. 9 /CNW/ - On November 13, leaders in Canada's health and business sectors will gather at Toronto's Four Seasons Hotel to hear about the impact of successful talent management intervention.

Using the Ottawa Hospital as a real life example of how to foster executive team development, succession preparation and overall organization health, the session will focus on how organizations can maximize their talent management.

Talent management is a structured effort to ensure the availability and development of high potential employees to assume critical organizational roles. The goal is to retain and develop intellectual and knowledge capital to afford these organizations a competitive advantage in their marketplace.

"Canadian organizations are dealing with an aging workforce and a forecasted shortage of skilled, experienced talent," said Jocelyn Bérard, Vice President at Nexient Learning. "Businesses need a mutually understood, authorized and actionable plan that develops a pipeline of ready leadership."

Close to 200 executives are expected at the event including leading health care, financial and corporate representatives from institutions such as the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, Mount Sinai Hospital, Sick Kids Hospital, Toronto East General Hospital, Trillium Health Care, Women's College Hospital, Ontario Power Generation, Canadian Tire, Hudson's Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, BMO, Deloitte, CIBC, KPMG, Manulife Financial, TD Bank and UBS.

Talent Management Interventions That Work is part of Nexient's Executive Speakers series and takes place on Friday, November 13 between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto. For more information about the conference please click here
