The session entitled “Expanding the Talent Management Arsenal” will occur at 1:15 pm ET and will explore how various talent development tools can help HR executives better navigate today’s business challenges of maintaining employee engagement and managing shifting market priorities. The Talent Technology Summit is a one-day event exclusively focused on bringing together the leading providers in Talent Acquisition, Workforce Performance and Talent Management in a hands-on, interactive environment.

“In today’s economic landscape, HR leaders are faced with constant waves of change driven by high turnover rates, lack of employee morale, constantly shifting market priorities, or even a stronger requirement for alignment with the business.” explains Wilkinson. “To face these challenges, executives in HR and Talent Management must look to uplift their current processes while leveraging new tools to help manage the workflows and new use cases.”

During Wilkinson’s presentation attendees will learn more about:

• Specific scenarios occurring in organizations where the implementation of talent management tools makes sound business sense
