THE BOTTOM LINE

Talent management minus HR equals productivity

Employers need to unlock the higher-quality productivity gains that technology for talent management has to offer. Nucleus advises they do so by taking the key away from HR, where gains are at best administrative in nature. Advancements in analytics are HR administrators’ saving grace and give them skin in the talent management game from afar—where they should be. That’s because talent management is about spurring an employee to greater levels of productivity, and this can only happen when and where he or she interacts with a manager, supervisor or coworker.
