Talent Development

Talent development is the process of changing the human capital of an organization, using planned and unplanned learning, in order to achieve and maintain a competitive advantage for the organization. While some companies provide selective attention to the top x% of employees, either by potential or performance, it is essential that companies focus on career development for each employee regardless of their level in the company in order to improve retention. To be successful in the future, organizations must be able to align strategic training and career opportunities for their employees.

Moving forward, it is becoming increasingly important to abandon the traditional “one-size-fits-all” retention strategy in favor of a targeted personalized approach in order to have a reasonable chance of retaining your top talent. Another more subtle aspect of the talent equation is employee engagement. Individuals not identified in the top x% are still valuable assets to the organization, and if they are ignored, employee engagement can decrease. This becomes a no-win situation; these disaffected people will either contribute to higher turnover levels or worse, will create a drag on productivity by remaining and operating at a lower level of engagement. Research has shown that valued employees are happy employees, and happy employees are more productive.
