CTMS Modules 
THR 504: Aligning Talent Management to Strategy 
The most pressing imperative for businesses and other organizations today is the quest for growth with the biggest challenge being the talent (including TE talents) and the leadership needed to secure and sustain such growth. But it’s not just about the people. It is about having the right people, in the right place, at the right time. Equally important, it is the entire organization acting in harmony to execute the strategies established for achieving critical results.

With a combination of individual and organizational components, understanding Talent Strategy and Organizational Alignment will help the human capital specialist to transform the organization by enabling the management team to engage people, ignite potential, overcome inertia, generate motion, enhance teamwork, coordinate action, and actually activate the organization’s planned strategies. Without such alignment, the Talent management initiatives will not bear fruition.

THR505: Cross Generation Talent Management 
Managing talents in today’s VUCA world is already challenging enough for many organisations without having to take into consideration the multiple generations of talents working together under one roof. Today’s workplace is experiencing increased turmoil as the ongoing retirement of Baby Boomers and the advancement of Generation Xers to fill their positions is accelerating a transition to a younger generation of workers commonly referred to as Millennials or the Gen Yers. This group of Gen Yers have its own beliefs, values and assumptions about behavior in the workplace but lacks the real-world experience needed to move up the management ladder. Consequently, there now exist a potential talent gap that could leave organizations short-handed and vulnerable especially with regards to leadership talents. Therefore, it is imperative that business leaders and the human capital specialist in any organization understand how each of these different generation group works best in order to have a productive unified, focused, and aligned direction to achieve organization objectives.

Therefore, with at least three (3) generations of employees working together and with the Gen Z employees joining the workforce soon, cross generation talent management will become even more challenging, and thus, organizations and the human capital specialists need to be adept at managing across different generations

THR 506: Strategic Talent Acquisition, Selection and Employer Branding 
Managing people is the most difficult task for any organisations regardless of whether they are profit oriented or non-profit focused. The need to acquire talent is becoming even more challenging for organisations today as there is a scarcity of the right talent for every organisation. Acquiring the best talent for a role can serve as a competitive advantage for an organisation whereas ineffective recruitment and selection can result in enormous disruption, reduced productivity and performance, interpersonal difficulties and interruptions to operations, customer service and other associated costs.

On the other hand, although the talent acquisition strategy may be relevant and appropriate for the organisation, at times, when the selection is not effectively executed, it could still lead to “disaster” for the organisation as the wrong person is hired for the job. Putting the right talent for a specific job also lies on the organisation’s ability to effectively screen through potential candidates in order to select the most appropriate talent.

However, due to the scarcity of the right talent for the right job, many organisations are finding it increasingly difficult to source and attract these talents to the organisation. Consequently, organisations are increasingly turning to Employer Branding to build a talent attraction “brand” to ensure that the right talents are being acquired for the right job.
