recruitment-processTalent management is an important section that is increasingly gaining attention and is helping organizations to bring management initiatives and human resources together. These days, companies utilize different types of talent management schemes so as to develop high potential employees. But only 56% organizations are able to rate their talent management activities as effective, while others are experiencing a downturn in talent management.

The fact is that organizations are not successfully integrating their succession planning and talent with their strategic business plans. Sometimes, it can be due to disconnect in the hiring process between hiring manager and recruiters. But companies need to understand that talent management should always be seen as a long-term process, in order to achieve success.    


Role of Corporate Recruiters in Talent Management

Corporate Recruiters can always act as a bridge between cultural changes and employees. They tend to have a better understanding about the corporate culture and new employee’s expectations in relation to work culture.

For example, when a new employee experiences a change of culture, recruiters can help the new employees by managing their expectations as per the organizational culture. At the same time, they can also have a discussion with the managers to make them aware of how they can assist the new team members and facilitate them in making cultural adjustments. This kind of proactive behavior can always help organizations to manage their talent pool for a longer time span.

In addition to cultural adjustments, job and career expectations in the new employees also raise issues, which sometimes affect talent management schemes. In such scenarios, recruiters can guide the new team members to be flexible and talk to managers regarding highlighting the job role to the employees.

This way, new members will have the idea of how their job role will be different in future as compared to now. Managers will also be able to develop and nurture their team members, thus managing the talent pool effectively.
