Why You Should Attend

Talent, Skills, and Capabilities Development Canada 2014

The Talent, Skills, and Capabilities Development Canada 2014 Conference will give talent management professionals a deeper look into the key issues affecting the design and delivery of meaningful and effective talent development strategies, programs, and platforms to bridge skills gaps, grow exemplary leaders, and achieve a strategically aligned workforce.

Faced with an aging workforce, a deficit in skilled-trade workers, the need to assimilate an immigrant workforce, and the increasing need to promote workforce diversity, Canadian Organizations must move to create, maintain, and continually innovate the talent management practices.

Heads of Talent Management, Talent Development and Leadership Development will join together to hear their peers present on best practices for assessing their workforce on a regular basis and designing curriculums to overcome talent gaps.

  • Define collaboration strategies to link workforce planning and strategic talent management practices
