Patients are every healthcare organization’s main focus, so HCR ManorCare knew that to provide the best patient care, they needed to first prioritize their biggest resource: their people. Join us for this webcast as the presenters discuss their approach to implementing a talent management strategy. It was an ever-changing process as they welcomed a new chief operations officer, faced adjustments in the organization’s strategy, and had to manage funding struggles to keep up with healthcare-reimbursement changes. Their approach focused on improved employee learning, succession planning for key positions, and linking performance management to training and succession.

Attendees will learn:

  • how to link their talent management approach to their organization’s strategy
  • strategies for adjusting their approach in response to internal and external issues that will occur during implementation
  • the importance of doing a full organizational assessment prior to implementing a talent management strategy.
