Talent 4.0 – Talent Management for SMEs

The most valuable assets for your sustainable business success in these volatile days are people. But not just any people:


Talent Management 4.0 seems to be the most promising approach for companies to attract and maintain these key people and talents to better deal with a fast-changing world and global developments like the Covid-19 pandemic, demographic and climate change, digitisation, automation, and globalisation.

Talent 4.0 Project has developed different resources to enable Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to apply modern Talent Management and Analytics in their business strategy and HR practice. Furthermore it wants to draw a strong contribution to bridge the gap between current VET practices and business needs.

This European project partnership

  • performs an investigation research to find out about the current status of talent management practices and training needs of SMEs
  • collects available talent management tools and instruments for important Talent Management processes of SMEs and
  • finally develops and tests a special Talent Management training programme for HR responsibles, business owners and managers.
