Talent Management: A Learning Management System
Sam Houston State has unveiled the first phase of a new professional development initiative for staff employees, referred to as Talent Management.
Implementation of Talent Management will provide staff members the ability to chart paths for career growth as established by college or department leadership. The system maintains training transcripts for all staff and faculty employees, which employees and their supervisors may access online.
Compliance training, like the Equal Employment Opportunity course, will be administered through Talent Management. Users will also sign up for Instructor-Led Trainings, such as Photoshop, Excel, or Word, here as well. External training may be recorded in Talent Management, and supervisors may assign needed training to their direct reports. Users can browse for trainings that are available to them both in class and online and register with just a few simple clicks. Once training is complete, users can print out their own certificates of completion for their files. Transcripts will maintain a record of each user’s trainings in order to provide documentation for the user’s benefit.
In coming months, the Human Resources Department will conduct training needs assessments for all staff employees, including management and other administrators. The next phase of this professional development initiative is to establish a staff Learning Academy.
Talent Management will organize and centrally locate access to the Academy’s curriculum. In short, expect positive changes for career-enhancing training opportunities to come your way soon.
