The Foremost Tool for a mid-career Talent Management Professional

A new, specialized function within human resources, talent management is often considered synonymous with HR. This belief is way off the mark, though, because while HR looks merely at how well the candidate fits the role at hand, talent management digs deeper and analyzes not just this but also the fit with the organization — i.e. its culture, beliefs, practices, vision and more — as well as with possible future roles in the organization.

The market for HR professionals, though, is very competitive, with a number of qualified candidates looking to land a suitable role. The relative newness of global talent management has further amplified the need for capable candidates holding accredited certifications in the field. And if you are a mid-career HR and talent management professional seeking to accelerate your career progress and move to higher roles, a good certification can be an invaluable stepping stone. To cater to this very need, the Talent Management Institute (TMI), whose standards, credentials and knowledge lead the revolution in how organizations leverage their human capital for enduring success, brings you the Global Talent Management Leader (GTML™) certification.
