One of the most frequent questions we are asked is, “What is the difference between talent management and HR?” Well, the relationship between the two is complicated. Human Resources and Talent Management have a tangled and enmeshed connection.
In many instances, you will find an overlap between talent management software and Human Resources software. Human Resources (HR) is already an established industry, helping businesses support and manage employees. Talent Management is a relatively new and ever evolving business sector. It is difficult to define Talent Management because it is consistently developing with digital advancements and industry innovation.
John Hopkins University defines Talent Management as “a set of integrated organisational HR processes designed to attract, develop, motivate, and retain productive, engaged employees.”
This definition sums up Talent Management in a single sentence but Talent Management needs to be deconstructed further.
Below we unpack the finer details of Talent Management.
Talent Management offers a modification in the hiring, training, and retention of employees’ process.
In the past, the hiring process was based on the question, “Does this person fit this specific role?”
Talent Management poses a different question and asks, “Does this person fit this specific role AND will this person be able to grow within the business space?”
Essentially Talent Management gives companies the opportunity to take a more holistic approach in the hiring and training process
As mentioned previously, Talent Management is a relatively new industry innovation and continues to grow. And the definition of Talent Management will continue to evolve alongside innovation, and technological advancements.
