Talent management has been described as having the “right people with the right skills in the right jobs at the right time.”
Achieving this goal means aligning the interests and skills of individual employees with MIT’s organizational needs. Talent management is a systemic approach to assessment, planning, and learning. It is an ongoing process and a shared responsibility of the employee, manager, and organizational leaders. MIT’s Office of Career and Talent Management develops strategies, planning tools, resources, and programs for MIT’s schools, departments, labs, and centers to stimulate communication about work and development planning and to help employees develop in their current roles and prepare for future opportunities.
