Talent Management

Best in class HR delivered globally

Talent Management is a constant process that involves attracting and retaining high-quality employees, developing their skills, and continuously motivating them to improve their performance.

Some consider the term ‘talent’ to refer to employees who are the top performers or those with high potential within an organisation, while others view ‘talent’ as everyone in an organisation. This is a strategic decision an organisation needs to make.

Talent Management can include talent acquisition (proactive talent sourcing and recruitment), learning and development, organisational values and vision, performance management, career pathways and succession planning.

Talent Management is considered a critical strategic risk in most organisations and is often one of the top people priorities together with organisational culture and health, safety and wellbeing. The Talent Management approach should maximise the value of the most important asset in your organisation – your people. It enables this by focusing on:

  • Attracting top talent/candidates to your business.
  • Effectively planning and managing critical roles and identifying potential short, medium and long-term candidates/successors for these roles.
  • Increasing performance by selecting the right candidates for specific roles.
  • Improving employee engagement and performance by addressing the right development opportunities for individuals.
  • Retaining top talent by ensuring you have a robust onboarding program and consistent approach to talent and development practices.
  • Improving overall business performance by ensuring employees are engaged, skilled and motivated, they will work towards your business goals.
  • Performance Management which is the process that continuously identifies, measures and develops the performance of your workforce.
