Talent management 'not up to scratch'
Existing talent management strategies put in place by companies are not doing enough to pull in the right type of candidate, it has been claimed.

Outsourcing consultants Hewitt HR said that companies need to "work much harder" to make sure their strategies are "filtered down" to the right people.

A poll by the Building the Talented organisation found that more than half of respondents believe their managers are not making full use their company's talent programmes in their decision making.

Nick Warren, head of talent consulting for Hewitt HR, commented: "Many line managers currently do not have the capability, time or will to manage talent correctly. As a result, too many businesses are failing to attract the right people or develop the talent they have."

According to a recent survey by IBM and the Human Capital Institute, only 40 per cent of the businesses questioned were able to predict their future skills requirements.
