Global Talent Management: Gangnam Style

2016 SHRM Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: You will learn innovative and effective global talent management practices so that you can solidify your role as a strategic partner in your organization.

As Asian companies are becoming multinational power players, the best global talent management practices are no longer “the preserve of the West.” The 2014 Fortune Global 500 list included 95 Chinese, 57 Japanese, 17 Korean and eight Indian companies. Many of these companies reached their milestones through creative global talent development and employer branding strategies. This session will address the factors in their success and highlight how Samsung, headquartered in the Gangnam district of Seoul, South Korea, has become Interbrand's No. 7 Best Global Brand from an unknown original equipment manufacturer (OEM) company in 25 years. Samsung's story will inspire any multinational to attempt the best combination of East and West for their talent management strategies. This session will help you:

·         Understand the rise of Asian multinationals and their impact on the global workforce.

·         Analyze your team's recruitment and retention challenges and opportunities.  

·         Identify benchmarking practices for creative and effective talent development.
