dms Manager Sarah Lacey has earned
the Human Capital Institute’s Human Capital Strategist certification.
With more than six years
recruitment and human resources experience both on and off island, Sarah heads
up human resources at dms.
The certification is a professional
designation that indicates an individual has attained the highest level of
qualification in human capital and talent management through rigorous study,
examinations and practical application.
Those who earn the certification
hold the belief that talent is the only sustainable advantage in a global
knowledge economy, and integrated talent management strategy and practices are
now central to business results.
The Human Capital Strategist designation
is the only programme of its type requiring participants to complete a
practicum in which they apply their learning to real-life business problems.
“Talent management is an art as
well as a science – the science component is implicit in the hard skills, being
the technicalities – understanding the processes, the tools and the
techniques,” said Ms Lacey
“But equally important for
successful talent management are the soft skills in the execution – the art of
maximizing your people’s potential. It is an intensive programme through which
I gained invaluable insight and I am grateful to dms for the opportunity to further
develop my skills.”
