GVFHRA Host on Talent Building
This morning I enjoyed another speaking stint about our tried and true talent building program featuring Switch HR‘s Seven Tenets, don’t ya know. This time at the kind invitation from the Greater Valley Forge Human Resource Association (GVFHRA). GVFHRA is a local SHRM Chapter who’s Mission is To serve our members as the premier regional forum for leadership and advancement in the field of Human Resources. Yes Indeed! Here is how they kindly pitched the program, which pretty much went off as advertised.
But don’t take my word for it, of course; ask the participants who I invited to this-here blog to review the details of our Human Resource Planning (HRP) Strategy and to download the slide presentation (also available @ www.GVFHRA.org. And here it is– the PowerPoint presentation, I mean! Don’t be afraid to hit the link, it is not going evoke a web form or ask you to input any information, click a disclaimer box or otherwise try to collect your personal data for marketing purposes. No, no. Leader-readers of a prior post–Don’t Buy the Lie on ROI–already know how I feel about those gimmicks.
Sooo… this GVFHRA outfit seemed to bring together a very enthusiastic group when it comes to real talent building. So engaged, many of my esteemed HR colleagues asked a lot great questions. But a one hour presentation just ain’t enough time to do justice to this momentous topic on how to use talent building to move your company from good to great. That’s why I also promised to direct today’s participants to the devil-details via blog posts as follows:
