Bersin Analyst Shares Best Practices for Measuring ROI of Talent Management Strategies

Workforce Management Webinar, presented by Cornerstone OnDemand, to feature real-life examples for making the business case and measuring value of key talent initiatives


Santa Monica, Calif., December 16, 2008 – While the global economic downturn and resulting layoffs and budget cuts make it even more imperative for businesses to focus on maintaining a high performance and motivating their workforce, HR and talent management executives are now faced with having to demonstrate the true value of their human capital investments.  Bersin & Associates analyst Kim Lamoureux will address this issue in a Workforce Management Webinar entitled “Measuring the Value of Talent Management in a Down Economy.”  The one-hour session, presented by leading learning and talent management software provider Cornerstone OnDemand Inc., is scheduled for Wednesday, December 17 at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT. 


During the Webinar, Lamoreaux will share real-life case studies of specific talent strategies for learning and development, performance management, leadership development, and succession planning.  Attendees will not only learn the key components of making a solid business case for talent management initiatives, they also will hear more about the importance of making the right technology investments and the key metrics for evaluating ROI in each area.  


“In recent years, more companies have been preparing for various workforce challenges and talent shortages by investing in their talent management processes,” said Kim Lamoureux, Principal Analyst, Bersin & Associates.  “Now is the time for them to not only demonstrate the value of these initiatives but to also revaluate their strategies.  Supporting key business goals and identifying high-impact positions are just two of the ways organizations can refocus and maximize the ROI of their talent management efforts.”
