Bersin & Associates analyst Leighanne Levensaler to address prioritization, optimal HR organizational models, strategic planning and more in Part One of a two-part series


Santa Monica, Calif., June 8, 2009 – Whether it is ensuring the right talent isn’t walking out the door or identifying which roles are driving the most value, organizations are finding that talent management is no longer a “nice to have” but a “need to have” for human resources (HR).  Bersin & Associates analyst Leighanne Levensaler will share best practices from leading businesses and offer real world guidance for maximizing workforce management strategies in a new, two-part Webinar series entitled “Talent Management Investments: Focusing on What Matters Most.”  Part One of the complimentary sessions, presented by Talent Management Magazine and sponsored by learning and talent management software provider Cornerstone OnDemand, is scheduled for Tuesday, June 9 from 2 – 3 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. PT. 


“The expansion of traditional HR roles in supporting business goals is escalating the need for talent management,” Leighanne Levensaler, Director of Talent Management Research for Bersin & Associates.  “However, companies are struggling with where to focus investments in what has become a cost-constrained environment.  They also are challenged with how to communicate the value and expected return of their strategies.”


In Part One of the series, Levensaler will address key questions such as:


  • How do I prioritize talent management strategies?
  • What is the optimal HR organization model to facilitate talent planning and management?
  • What talent information is critical for strategic planning?
  • How do I cost-justify talent investments to ensure executive commitment?
