Before individuals can be assessed, selected, and placed into roles, an understanding of the available talent in the current organization is needed. HR information systems (HRIS) can be used to obtain a complete directory of all current and incoming employees in the organization. HRIS data often requires scrubbing to ensure that titles and reporting relationships are accurate and that all individuals in the organization are accounted for. The organizational design steering committee should determine how to account for contractors, part-time employees, and employees on leave.
