Talent Pipeline Management with Institute for the Future
Tuesday, October 31, 2017
About the Webinar:
Institute for the Future invites you to learn more about the Talent Pipeline Management initiative with Jaimie Francis from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to build on the work initiated at the October 3-4 STEM Ecosystems CoP Convening in Kansas City, MO.
One major challenge facing our communities today is how to better engage employers in a more collaborative public-private approach to talent management. A related challenge is how to integrate employer data sources with existing public data resources in analyzing and improving talent flows. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation launched the Talent Pipeline Management (TPM) initiative in 2014 to address these challenges based on lessons from supply-chain management. The TPM approach places a strong emphasis on employers working together in a collaborative—a voluntary assembly of business members that share the common goal of improving the talent flow process. This collaborative can be managed through a trusted intermediary, such as a business or economic development organization, chosen by the employer members. The members join together to compile and share information about their workforce needs with their education and workforce development partners. This shared information is then used to develop, implement, and evaluate joint talent management strategies.
Through Talent Pipeline Management we can achieve a truly demand-driven education and workforce system that creates shared value for all stakeholders, including employers, education and workforce providers, students and workers, and policymakers.
