Social Media dominated in Year 2011: Year 2011 was a challenging year for many recruiting, placement and talent management companies but despite of lower costs budgets, candidate seeking firms continued to employ and develop talent. One factor that seemed to get into at every high level management conversation was social media. It’s obvious that Face book or MySpace, LinkedIn and Tweeter will play a lead part in selecting and building best talent in years to come.

Needlessly to say, year 2011 saw no less than forty new companies appear to help organizations use social networking to attract referrals. Companies started to see early phase tools to use social networking in talent evaluation (pre and post hire) as well as applicant or employee experience management. New tools introduced have much improved exposure into talent hiring.

Mobile platform will be in year 2012: By the end of year 2011, even the disbelievers will have to confess that the mobile platform will have become the major devices and connections platform by early adopting best practice companies. The capabilities provided customers of mobile phones, smart phones and tablet devices to develop hugely day by day. In the old times specific in boxes existed for the computers user, smart device customers could see all inbound e-mail, social texting, text messages, and speech and video texting in a single place.

Tablet devices will become the exclusive educational setting and growing class of tools will let workers manage almost every aspect of their professional life electronically. During the next year 2012, talent management organizations need to pay intensely assisting talent control projects across cellular platform.

Hiring competition in selected areas: International economic issues will continue for decades to come but the international war for talent will proceed spearing in the key sector areas. While talent development has stunted in Chine, Australia and South Asia such as Indian keeps seeing extraordinary need for experienced talent. In the U.S. and European countries, need is still mostly restricted to certain sectors where skills shortages have been an issue for decades.

In modern day of technological innovation, year 2012 will see a significant boom in the war for top talent. Pioneers and game changers companies like Face book or MySpace, Apple, Google, Tweets, and Zynga, new type to technical online companies will be blessed as each fighting for the best of the best. While recruiting will move ahead at a spectacular speed, so too will “rapid” leadership development.

Retention will increase dramatically: Almost every study reveals that more than a greater part of workers are willing to stop their present job as soon as a better opportunity comes along. It is forecasted that income prices in high-demand careers will improve by 25% during the current year. Most retention programs applications have been so seriously changed, retention could come to be the highest economic impact area in all of talent management. In the New Year, rather than the conventional retention strategy that is “one size fits all”, a focused personalized technique will be required to have an affordable opportunity to maintain top talent.

Social media will impacts by more data driven:
Most firms jumped on the social media train but unfortunately the trial and error strategy used by most has produced only average results. Taking social networking tools from the business combined with strong analysis will allow more focused strategy that harnesses the effort of all workers on social networking. Talent management organization will increasingly see the value of a combination of internal and external social networking strategies for handling and developing talent.

Talent management changes everything:
The ongoing growth of technology, social networking, and easy communication now creates it possible for most knowledge task and team activities to occur slightly. Allowing top talent manger to perform “wherever they want to work” increases retention and makes recruiting dramatically easier.

It is now possible for as much as 50% of an organization's tasks to be done remotely; administrator and HR level of resistance has restricted the trend. Luckily, supervisors and talent management personals started to understand that working together, learning, progression, selecting, and best-practice giving can now efficiently be achieved using remote methods.

Final judgment:
A recent study of CEOs rates talent management as the number one area where CEOs expect dramatic change during the year. Given this increased awareness, it’s even more critical that talent management and recruiting experts set aside time to conduct an assessment to identify where they are and where they need to be. The “new” talent management managers must be more strategic, more practical and more businesslike and that means getting entire staff to start thinking and scheduling for the game changing measures, trends, and opportunities that will occur during the year.
