PwC: Roys boys reflect talent management dilemma

Heading into Euro 2016, Roy Hodgson’s England side currently look far stronger in attack than defence, where they are short of available top level central defenders. Yet the manager’s biggest dilemma could be how he will fit in emerging stars like Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli, who all offer very different attributes, alongside established players like Wayne Rooney in his starting eleven. Will he prioritise individual talent over team performance?

I have been reflecting this week on how over the past few days the England team's preparations have provided us with a fascinating real life case study on the challenges of talent management.

Finding the right blend of skills and experience in such a short space of time will be vital to England's hopes of success.

Businesses are also challenged with finding the right skills they need to suceed and the demand for talented people is higher than ever. Three-quarters of all CEOs from our latest survey ranked it as the biggest threat to growth.

On 28 June we will hold our next HR matters discussion roundtable for senior HR professionals. We are pleased to have guest speakers Andrew Sentance, our Senior Economic Adviser and Amali de Alwis, CEO of 'CodeFirst: Girls' who will be sharing their thoughts and experiences on talent management.

They'll be looking at strategies for business in attracting new talent, as well as retaining and developing existing talent including:

  • the economic factors behind the skills shortage and the changing employment landscape
  • the initiatives undertaken by businesses and the Government to close the gap
  • how businesses are responding to the challenge, and
  • the skills that business needs to think about when looking at the changing area of talent management for example, digital.

The event is likely to encourage a very lively debate among a group of peers from across a variety of industries. And hopefully by June 28 we can also discuss England's quarter final opponents over a drink afterwards...
