NEW YORK - Aug. 6, 2014 - PRLog -- Technomedia, a leading provider of Talent Management Solutions, today announced the availability of its latest webcast, “The Role of Talent Management Technology in Leadership Development (,” which shares key insights and best practices for how technology can be used to develop and retain top performers.

Employers today face a number of obstacles in identifying and hiring the qualified talent their organizations need to remain competitive, from reduced HR budgets to ongoing skills and leadership gaps. As mass retirements among the baby boomer generation continues, organizations are seeing their most experienced leaders leave the workforce and often find themselves scrambling to replace them. However, the most successful organizations understand that by providing continuous leadership training and support, they can create robust pipelines of talent able to step in and fill those gaps. The challenge lies in identifying and adopting the technology that can facilitate this process.

In “The Role of Talent Management Technology in Leadership Development,” Gartner’s research director for HCM Technologies, Ron Hanscome, and Dwaine Maltais, executive vice president and general manager of U.S. Operations for Technomedia, discuss how technology can support an integrated approach to the full spectrum of talent management. In particular, Maltais highlights how Technomedia’s industry-leading talent management platform provides employers with the tools to transform their leadership strategies by identifying high potential employees and their strengths and areas for development and providing them with growth opportunities throughout their career. As a result, they can achieve greater engagement and retention among their top employees.

“Effective leadership development is dependent upon having the right talent management technology in place to identify both candidates and current employees who show the potential to be strong leaders,” said Maltais. “Technomedia’s integrated talent management suite comprises talent acquisition, performance management, learning and career development, and succession planning in a single, integrated platform. Our solutions enable employers to easily leverage insight gained from employee performance and reviews to provide those high potentials with the development, training and ongoing support they need to advance through the company.”

According to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites report, “Historically, HR leaders had to purchase separate functional components if they wanted best-of-breed software to support a particular talent management process, such as talent acquisition or compensation. However, offerings from the vendor community have continued to expand beyond their capabilities of origin to cover more talent-related functions; concurrently, IT and user frustration with the cost and effort of integrating multiple niche solutions has grown. As a result, the talent management suite has become a viable option, and multiple vendors have credible offerings. The market for talent management suites has become firmly established as a major option for enterprises looking to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their talent processes.”[1]
