The changing world of work and way in which employees now view the term ‘career’, provides a real challenge when your organisation is looking to attract and retain top talent.
The balance of power has shifted away from organisations, towards individual employees who are taking control of when, where, and how they choose to work. The need for organisations to empower the right people in the right places and align talent development with strategic business goals, will increasingly become a major differentiator for success.
Organisations that have clear career pathways engage and empower employees, creating opportunities for them to identify and develop the key knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to progress their career. That’s how an organisation develops and retains talent.
This approach allows employees to create their own development plans and provides experiences intended to develop core technical and behavioural skills. Organisations then have the ability to align skills and behaviours with strategic roles, retain talent and provide a pipeline of future potential. It’s a win-win scenario for the individual and for the organisation – or is it?
