eLearning BENCHMARKING Study 2018 - Partial study: Talent Management
Between hype and trend topics from artificial intelligence to blockchain to the Internet of Things or the Smartfactory, one can quickly get the impression that future technical innovations will determine the success or failure of companies. However, it should not be forgotten that employees will continue to make a decisive contribution to the companyâs success in the future, because the latest technology can only unfold its full advantages if employees have the necessary knowledge and the right skills. The fight for skilled workers, talents and high potentials will not lose anything of its importance if demographic change intensifies it. The following evaluation is based on the figures of the last two years and offers current insights and interpretations on the status of Talent Management in the DACH region.
Chapter 1: Talent Management in the DACH region
The own employees are and remain the most important resource of a company.

In order not to lose touch in times of demographic change and the âwar for talentâ, Talent Management is a central tool for companies. But what challenges are HR departments actually confronted with? Which Talent Management measures are used in practice? And which target groups are addressed with Talent Management? The following chapter provides an overview of the status of Talent Management in German-speaking countries.
Chapter 2: TMS – from selection to successful use
A TMS is designed to support companies at various stages of a Talent Management concept and can make the processes of a companyâs human resources department more efficient, from recruiting to identifying and managing competencies to developing talents. At the same time, a TMS is a long-term investment, similar to a learning management system, which can make it difficult to acquire such software, especially in small and medium-sized enterprises with fewer available resources.
