In this assignment your challenge is to develop a strategy to identify the top talent within a global organization, and also to figure out how to communicate this policy to the entire staff. As you develop this strategy, assume that the CEO of this company does not want to limit the number of candidates and wants the top 15 percent of the company worldwide slotted for future development in all functional areas of the company. In a one- to two-page paper, be sure to address the following:
- As an HR Director of a global organization, what positions within the organization would you enlist to help you with this assignment?
- What approach would you take to create the selection criteria for your policy?
- What information system would you use to track these candidates’ progress in the organization? Indicate what pieces of data would be important to track and who should have access to that data.
- Also include a discussion and at least two examples from your reading about companies you think have not created an effective policy to identify top performers, and describe how you would avoid their mistakes.
There is a lot of information on human resource information systems (HRIS) options. A good place to start looking for information is on the International Human Resource Information Management (IHRIM)Web site.
