Empowering through alignment of talent management, 26 May 2012 [cached]
The second speaker of the morning was Hayleys PLC Group Human Resources Head Sunil Dissanayake who addressed the topic 'Aligning talent management with organisational strategy,' which addressed how an organisation can effectively use performance assessment methodologies to identify the high potential employees. "I personally believe that in everything we do in terms of employees, whether measuring performance of people or identifying talent - for all this the foundation has to be an effective performance management system. If you don't have that, the transparencies will simply not be there - people will be disgruntled. From that you build the other pillars - I've identified four core pillars, namely rewards and recognition, identifying talent pools and employee retention, training and development and succession planning," he said.
Most of the time, people are hired over a five minute interview and then you spend more time trying to get rid of the individual," Dissanayake pointed out.
