"Winning the War for Talent in a Time of Talent Scarcity"
The link between talent and business performance has never been stronger. CEOs are convinced of this fact, and more than 75% are changing their talent management strategies to gain a competitive advantage.*
While improving the efficiency of individual processes—including recruiting, performance management, succession planning, professional development, and compensation—is a good first step, true success comes from executing strategies that are based on holistic views of talent across all your processes.
Join us to learn how Oracle's leading human capital management solutions can help you:
- Understand the data from your talent management processes and how to connect it to your business performance
- Design and execute more effective strategies for hiring, developing, and rewarding your people
- Leverage performance management + feedback + development + career planning to attract and retain great talent
