Talent management

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Part B (2000 words)
“Graduate recruitment and development forms one of the most important feeders to the talent pipelines for specialist and senior management positions, and so is firmly on the agenda of many businesses. But this is not just talent-spotting the “high flyers” at an early stage and fast tracking their careers. Many companies now recruit a wider range of graduates (and non-graduates) with potential for reaching a range of positions. Managing this more diverse pool of talent can be a challenge and one that requires considerable resources and effort to do well” (Connor & Shaw, 2008:358)
Critically outline the reasons why many organisations value graduates as talent and reflect on the impact of Connor and Shaw’s (2008) view for the acquisition, utilisation, development and reward of your talent within an organisational setting. Your answer, whilst being personally focussed must also refer to relevant literature and best practice.

Guidance for Part B:
This reflective element is asking you to consider your individual experiences and/or expectations of how your talent has been/will be managed in an organisational setting. You are required to consider the whole talent pipeline (see fig 1.0), highlighting best practice and key issues then relating this to your own experiences/expectations in each of the component parts. Think about how so called “best practice” has/could influence your decision to join an organisation; how it feels/could potentially feel to be “talent managed”;
how you have had or expect your talent to be nurtured and rewarded.

Generic Guidance:
Your own experience within an organisation
You can analyse your own experience within an organisation however please remember that
You must write concisely and not use valuable words describing· situations
You must be analytical, rather than merely telling a story; analyse· why the situation was as it was, the implications of this and how this compared to good practice
Don’t rely solely on your own experience for examples – these only· represent one view.
