Launch of AmCham HR Talent Toolkit
The soft launch for the AmCham Talent Toolkit was held on 2nd December 2015 at the Citi Office, Mumbai. As the natural next step to the creation of the Talent Toolkit, based on the inputs from the previous HR meeting, the talent committee had a soft launch of this toolkit to the extended HR committee members and business leaders. This workshop was facilitated with the objective of bringing together HR and business leaders to validate the content for the toolkit and also incorporate changes as per suggestions.
The workshop was well attended by senior management participants represented a cross-section of industry from BFSI, consulting, retail, technology
and information services sectors. The program began with a presentation from the talent work stream, covering the various macro trends in the environment, their impact on the emerging workplace of the future, the talent challenges faced by organizations, the shifts required to move from the current to the future and the best practices employed by organizations to equip themselves for navigating talent management effectively. The participants were introduced to the talent management framework that is being developed as a talent management toolkit to share among AmCham members in India.
Post this, the participants were segregated into smaller break-out groups to provide inputs for the challenges, trends, best practices as well as the toolkit. The talent workstream plans to build further on the framework by bringing together business leaders and managers of talent in a similar workshop, to test and
reaffirm the recommendations of the soft launch of the toolkit. This will be scheduled soon in January 2016. Overall leaders and participants appreciated the toolkit and the committee is working towards the final output.
