Quotations must be credited Every department of the corporate struc-ture undergoes change with time. The depart-ment of Talent Management too has grown and matured over the last few years. With glo-balization of the workforce and emergence of Millenials, the whole world of talent is seeing new changes and development. So what do we have in store for 2015? Is it performance management, people management or some-thing else? This issue of Talent Management consists of articles that will shed light on the topics. Our cover article by Tarik Taman, Perfor-mance Management: Hopelessly Broken? focuses on the popular discussion Why is performance management broken? He clearly stays away from totally agreeing to the fact. He says, “It might be true that a certain type of performance management is no longer de-livering – the performance management that has come to typify performance management as a whole” Now what does this mean? He has a point when he says, performance man-agement isn’t broken, but needs to be done right. Read on to find out more. 2015-The Year of Performance Manage-ment? By Joe Abusamra is yet another in-teresting article that focuses on a renewed emphasis on performance management in relation to talent management and people management. As organizations delve into talent analytics and more integrated talent management pillars such as talent acquisition, onboarding, succession planning and learning and development, they begin to understand that performance management is a key to all talent management components. So is 2015 really a year of performance management? Yes, says Joe. Prof. Sattar Bawany and Adam Bawany have conducted a study that mainly focuses on leading and engaging Gen Y and Z effec-tively. In their article, Inspiring Your Future Workforce, they explore the unique values and belief systems that these two generations embody, their attitudes to work and life, their highly ambitious and inquisitive nature, and how to best fit them in organisations locally and around the world in the context of today’s economic reality and diverse work-place. Worth a read! Paul Elsass’ article Talent Around You brings home the point that employees should be allowed to be their best and should be given the room to grow. He says that the more a company relies on the full gambit of our talents, the more fulfilled we are in our jobs. This fulfillment makes our jobs more enjoyable and more productive. Agree? Apart from these articles, we also have a good number of other informative articles in this issue that focuses on various facets of Talent Management. We hope you enjoy reading these articles that show the impor-tance of how the valuing and leveraging your talent can increase your company’s perfor-mance.
