Give talent a chance

Diametrically opposed views of financial departments and HR departments about staff issues is one of the major discussions in organisations. The "traditional" concept says that financial people are interested only in figures while HR people are looking for more qualitative results.

The reasoning of talent management in the workplace is literally a language that is understood and adopted by most, and has contributed substantially to spread business mentoring good practices in organisations.

Talent management refers to the process by which an organisation identifies, attracts, manages, develops and engages people to meet existing and future business needs.

Appropriate management leads to the talent pools creation according to different characteristics such as general, technical, leadership etc.

Talent development strategy provides business with people who

  • are respected and trusted by their colleagues
  • have consistent measurable results that exceed expectations
  • are fond of action, and proactive catalysts for change
  • assure that team objectives are achieved without violating ethical and cultural rules
  • operate in a way that promotes learning and high performance
  • think and solve problems with creatively
  • are open to constructive criticism and feedback
  • fully understand organisation’s operation ,and their role in achieving business objectives
  • strive to meet and exceed customer needs
  • have developed an important network of people willing to support them to achieve their goals
  • the benefits are undisputed when talent management is approached correctly and consistently.

    Finally, everything cannot be measured only with numbers and the 21st entrepreneur or manager should take all parameters under consideration.

    However, those who choose to ignore talent management in a world where knowledge is the greatest driving force for business and economies have to know that they do it at their own risk.
