While talent management often focuses on managerial and executive positions, the issues involved apply to all jobs that are hard to fill. Failures in talent management may be more recognizable than the concept itself. Those failures include mismatches between supply and demand: on the one hand, having too many employees, leading to layoffs and restructurings, and on the other hand, having too little talent or not being able to find the skills that are needed.
These mismatches are among the biggest challenges that employers face. Over the past generation, many employers have lurched from surpluses of talent to shortfalls and back again.
Learn more about the right way of managing your talent from Professor Peter Cappelli. Recognized as one of the world's most important authorities on human capital, Dr. Peter Cappelli is the George W. Taylor Professor of Management at the Wharton School and Director of Wharton's Center for Human Resources.
His work focuses on human resource practices, talent and performance management, and public policy related to employment. He advises organizations on the development of managerial and executive talent by helping his clients better understand how careers and career paths have changed, how these changes require companies to think about managing talent from a more strategic perspective, and how individuals should now think about managing their own careers.
Peter's more recent research examines changes in employment relations in the U.S. and their implications. Publications on the subject matter include, The New Deal at Work: Managing the Market-Driven Workforce, which examines the decline in lifetime employment relationships, Talent Management: Managing Talent in an Uncertain Age, which outlines the strategies that employers should consider in developing and managing talent (named a "best business book" for 2008 by Booz-Allen).
Peter was named one of the 25 most influential people in the field of human capital by Vault.com and one of the top 100 people in the field of recruiting by Recruiter.com. Additionally, he was elected to the National Academy of Human Resources, and—in 2004—named editor of the Academy of Management Perspectives. He currently serves on commissions for The Business Roundtable, the World Economic Forum, and the U.S. Department of Labor.
