Talent Management is both a point of view and a combination of a number of workflow changes. To implement this properly, a cultural and procedural approach is required. We advise you to do this step by step and to take the time to roll this out. There are a number of elements that are important during implementation:
What is Talent Management?
What are the advantages?
People who work based on their talent, enjoy their work more and get inspired. Engaged employees are effective and radiate enthusiasm for their environment. This enthusiasm benefits the culture and customer experience.
By improving qualities you achieve more than by improving weaknesses. It’s with good reason that Talent Management is inspired by the sport: you can only become a champion if you train your players talent to the maximum. Successful organizations embrace this principle.
Talent Management leads to lower operational HR costs. People who work with their talent are less prone to burnout, stay longer and are more productive. However, a number of HR interventions must be set up to effectively organize Talent Management. The past has shown that these costs are many times lower than their returns.
What should you pay attention to when implementing Talent Management?
Put Talent Management at the center of your HR strategy. The ideas for working based on trust and stimulation must have support at management level.
Ensure that the HR systems used are supporting your strategy. Imagine rolling out a strategy based on talent development, but your assessment system still forces you to set points for improvement, this can work counterproductive to your strategy.
Where possible, give employees the autonomy to use and develop their talent. This freedom will give the employee the space to show his/her talents instead of trying to meet their desired role.
Educate management: a coaching, stimulating management style is required for Talent Management to work. How can management support their employees in strengthening their talents. This requires a certain mindset and the use of coaching skills.
