For the Employer – Talent Management – what is it and why should I care?
Talent management is essential to the success of any organization. Leaders need to recruit, train, and retain qualified employees. Providing incentives and developing individuals is the difference between engaging people and merely employing them. Investing in talent management will provide financial benefits as it improves the company’s culture.
All talent is not artistic. Talent is any ability or skill at which a person is successful. It is important for leaders of organizations to find and develop talented employees. Employees who have the specific skill sets that the company requires are profitable and help drive the business forward.
Talent management takes hard work and dedication. It is not enough to recruit qualified candidates. Successful talent management retains the best employees. The goal of talent management is to have a skilled workforce and a complete succession plan without any destructive gaps that would cost the company if an employee were lost.
Ask yourself… “What am I doing each day to ensure that my company has a fully integrated talent management system?” If the answer is “nothing” then start 2019 off by setting the wheels in motion. There is no time like now to get started.
