“With real-time access to talent skills data, HR teams can use analytics to identify future talent gaps,” the HRD article points out from a KPMG report. “Indeed, this capability will be a key strategic differentiator that global mobility professionals can provide to their organisations.”
“HR plays a critical role in being the custodian of an organisation’s talent management. It has to establish the governance and guidelines of the global mobility programme and work to facilitate the smooth administration of the programme,” said Miranda Lee, director of people and change management at KPMG Singapore, in the HRD article.

"We sat down in HR and said, 'Maybe we're missing an opportunity here,'" shares Kellie Zollers, vice president of human resources at Toll Brothers, in the article. "We felt that there had to be folks throughout the company who have interests elsewhere, outside of, say, finance, accounting or marketing. And they're not getting as much of a cross-section of experiences in a traditional, upward, ladder-type mentoring program. So I put [the idea of a cross-functional mentoring program] out to our employees here in the corporate office first, and the positive response was overwhelming."
"Determine their development needs, and how those gaps can be addressed to help groom them for top roles someday," shares Jennie Carlson, the U.S. Bancorps vice president of human resources, in the article. "For example, we might offer one of these individuals an opportunity to travel to a different city to gain experience leading a team."

We can now offer them compensation which will be inline with the market standard. More importantly, we will be going through a rapid expansion phase in next 2-3 years and roles and responsibilities of current team will continue to grow.
