Talent Management

Best Practice Overview

Talent Management has emerged in recent years as a cornerstone of the organizations Human Resource function.   AMS embraces Talent Management as a critical organizational success factor and leverages; acquisition, development and retention as the macro focus areas when developing enterprise wide talent solutions:

Talent Acquisition:

  • Far removed from days gone by and boilerplate onboarding strategy, talent acquisition is now a sophisticated and fully integrated part of an organizations strategic footprint.  By promoting the involvement of management and a full build out of roles/responsibilities organizations can benefit from shortened ramp-up time, better moral and collaboration earlier in the employment cycle.  Creating attractive packages, dynamic working conditions, diverse collaboration and global opportunity all contribute to the “attraction.”  However, it is equally critical to build substantive screening and selection criteria in order to help hiring mangers fill the front end with the proper competency to ensure alignment of resources in the pool to existing and future business needs.   Our approach to this phase of the process is built around a scalable methodology and works hand in hand with existing software and other internal process to ensure optimization is being derived from the existing approach.

Talent Development:

  • Training” employees is not enough to stay competitive in today’s market place.  The adage of the past was to become a “learning organization” the future requires companies become, “thinking organizations.”  The AMS approach to talent development encompasses various blended delivery models, supportive learning artifacts and scenario based curriculum development all delivered by senior level practitioners.  The development of your talent needs to provide “just-in-time” content but also “context” to promote immediate skills enhancement.  By using a toolbox of assessments and pre-evaluation work, AMS can fully customize learning paths for your talent or simply supplement and established Learning Group with content, artifacts and guidance.

Talent Retention:

  • The loss of talent has sunken costs we will never fully be able to measure.  AMS understands the need to keep moral, productivity and engagement high, while lowering the cost of attrition.  Our employee engagement methods encompass multiple approaches to build participation, inclusion and diversity.
