Global HR Group Conducting Study on Talent Management

By Roy Maurer May 20, 2015

The World Federation of People Management Associations (WFPMA) is conducting a research study on talent management, focusing on smaller organizations, and is asking for HR professionals to participate in an online survey. “Talent management is key to the performance of any size organization, but research on the smaller ones hardly exists. WFPMA aims to provide national HR organizations with insights on how successful smaller organizations manage talent,” the group said. About 90 percent of the global economy is made up of small and midsize businesses, according to WFPMA.

The Global Study on Talent Management in Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises and Family-Owned Businesses is online, anonymous and requires about 10-15 minutes of the survey-taker’s time, according to WFPMA. It includes questions on current talent management practices and capabilities, major challenges, future priorities, and the implementation of new processes and tools.

The group expects to publish the results in October 2015.
