Talent as a Driving Force: Elevate Your Company's Capabilities

For some companies talent management is a highly volatile and emotional issue. Other organizations consider talent management policies to be an overrated topic. Third parties, on the other hand, pursue an "ostrich strategy": bury their heads in the sand and trust in the principle of hope: It won't be so bad.

Many opinions about talent management and yet all believes can lead to different outcomes. Ultimately, talent management is about "HR crisis management": It is about how companies adjust to demographic developments, the lack of qualified junior staff, the increasing independence of important know-how carriers or the growing cost pressure.

"With the successful participation in the course, you are well prepared for the burning strategic challenges of modern, future-oriented HR work. Furthermore, our alumni network gives you access to HR professionals from a wide range of industries and company sizes, which is unique in the D-A-CH region."


[Translate to English:] Rudolf Binderlehner

"Talent and succession management is risk management and an important success factor for management to ensure the long-term future viability of companies. The long-announced demographic change, the shortage of skilled workers and the looming retirement wave of the baby boomer generation are presenting many companies with major challenges, some of them existential. Situational ad hoc appointments are less and less possible due to the availability on the labor market. Strategic talent and succession management prepares internal high potentials with important know-how for the challenges in order to contribute to business development as quickly as possible after the position has been filled."
