#Nextchat: HR Tactics for 2015 and Beyond


HR pros are always looking for effective ways to accomplish their organization’s talent management strategies. The problem is finding the time to plan and implement a strategy while keeping up with daily administrative tasks.  

A smart talent strategy is critical for any organization.  The key is to determine where your organization has needs and to find creative ways to address them.

If you don’t have enough of the right employees; if you’re scaring them away during the interview, or if they don’t stick around for very long, then the strategies of other departments such as sales, marketing and technology are likely to falter as well.

So how can HR find smart ways to work tactical execution into its daily tasks?  Sometimes one small, but brilliant, idea can have years of valuable returns or can even save a sinking ship. 

HR pros can incorporate strategic tactics into everyday processes, whether it’s posting jobs, interviewing candidates or onboarding new employees. For instance, recognition tools are important and can change the way your companies function.  Simple gestures such as saying “thank you” can have an enormous impact on employee morale, engagement and retention.  (When was the last time you sincerely thanked an employee?)

Technology and new generations in the workforce are constantly transforming the workplace. Talent strategies in 2015 and beyond must be nimble and flexible, and HR professionals must be ready to respond to rapid changes in technology and trends.

In her blog “10 Things to Reinvent Your Talent Acquisition Strategy,” Nisha Raghavan, co-host of the online DriveThruHR radio show, highlights the many different ways that HR crafts a winning talent acquisition strategy to attract – and keep -- the best employees.
