In the new millennium, leading business organizations have been capturing data about people, turning it into actionable information, and using it for making better decisions. Successful business leaders have been using talent data and insights to drive organizational success by unlocking the power of their people.
While business-led talent practices provide considerable benefits for the business and the HR department, comparably little has been written about the value of these activities for business leaders. This paper is the second in a five part series that explores the role of business leaders in driving talent management functions and the specific tools and approaches that will make them successful. This installment is on hiring and onboarding challenges, focusing on how talent intelligence helps business leaders to find better candidates faster; make better build, buy, or rent decisions; decrease new hire time-to-proficiency; and decrease the number of new hires who quickly leave.
