Being constantly updated on developments related to the attraction and retention of human talent is part of the tasks of human resources departments. Understanding the needs of the company’s qualified professionals is the best guarantee for the business to have a promising future. What are the trends that have the greatest impact on human talent management? We tell you about them below.

Businesses must take advantage of new opportunities and rely on technology to find the best people in the sector. HR departments must address human talent management to grow people within the organisation and optimise their performance; they will be the ones in charge of increasing their competitiveness.

One of the main keys is to humanise the company and invest in human capital. In addition, the implementation of tools for measuring professional activity and commitment is gaining importance. Above all, it is important for both the company and the employees to establish effective and digital communication channels. In this way, transparency is promoted in times of teleworking or remote working.

Investing in human talent is a guaranteed success for the future. It is very important to make forecasts that allow us to understand the needs that the organisation may have in the medium and long term. The main objective is to be able to link them with new opportunities and challenges that may arise, in order to obtain a profile that adds value to the organisation. The idea is to find a professional who contributes more than just covering specific needs.

In recent years, technology has become an essential tool for human resources. Numerous mobile applications have been created to facilitate talent management, offering speed in the selection process.  The search for candidates is no longer associated with time and space and this translates into finding the best person for the organisation.

Another key issue for companies is globalisation. Increasingly, opportunities present themselves in the connected world in which we live. The key is to stay one step ahead and combine the benefits of having a global perspective with a better understanding of the local market in which the company is located. This must also apply within the company and find a greater understanding of the business through a deeper analysis of each person’s job and way of working.

Transparency is one of the most important factors for work teams. It is essential to facilitate effective communication channels that improve the understanding of information both vertically and transversally, promoting the effectiveness of responses, points of view and perspectives, even more so in teleworking scenarios.

Finally, talent networks. This works well in companies looking for positions where there is not enough talent. It is important to create them to give continuity to a candidate in the selection process and to be able to follow his or her professional evolution so that in six months or a year he or she can be hired. It is important to generate good experience in the process because, otherwise, the person will not apply again.
