Building effective talent measurement systems in businesses big and small

Much has been written about best practices for measuring talent and which tests and tools to use, however there is little written that explores what businesses need to do to ensure that these measures have a real-world impact on the bottom line. This book fills that gap.

Talent Intelligence makes six key points: Talent management depends upon talent measurement; Current talent measurement activities are failing to have a significant real world impact; Talent measurement is tough to do; To improve the efficacy and impact of talent measurement, organizations and vendors need to start considering context more and start thinking in terms of talent matching; Organizations need to be more specific in measuring performance so that vendors can make better talent measurement tools; and Organizations need to worry less about which tools to use and more about how they use them.Written by Nik Kinley and Shlomo Ben-Hur, experts in talent measurement, who combine deep technical knowledge with first-hand experience of developing and implementing measurement in businessesContains real illustrative examples, and draws on the latest research and the authors' experience of working with some of the biggest and best-known global companies

Done well, talent measurement can enhance selection processes, resulting in improved job performance, accelerated time to full productivity, and reduced employee turnover. Yet, in many if not most businesses, measurement is not having the impact it should.Talent Intelligence shows leaders how to transform the value and impact of measurement in their organizations.
