Talent Management Infographic, ADP

Talent Management Infographic, ADP | Employer Branding News | Scoop.it

Only 7% of companies have mature talent management strategy in place.

 

Every organization has top performers, the employees who are head and shoulders above their coworkers in terms of the value they bring. Finding – and keeping – those people, and helping them grow in their careers, is a major challenge. Another is figuring out how to align your workers' productivity so it directly supports corporate initiatives.
Talent Management can reveal the hidden value in your workforce, answering questions such as:

 

• Who are our top performers?
• What knowledge or experience do they have?
• How can we be sure we're compensating them fairly without overspending?
• What kinds of training should they be getting?
• Which promotions could they be ripe for?
• Who will succeed them should they be promoted, retire or leave?
• Where can we find others like them?

Preventing the Loss of Key Talent, Edward E Lawler III

Preventing the Loss of Key Talent, Edward E Lawler III | Employer Branding News | Scoop.it

What kind of practices do organizations need to adopt in order to increase their agility and position them well to profit from the recovery? In order to be more agile, they need to adopt talent management practices that allow them to change the skill set of their employees and motivate them to change their behavior. They should not be adopting practices that are focused on retention.

 

The key practices that will accomplish great agility include abandoning the traditional job description approach to talent management and adopting a skill based pay system that includes pay for skills and skill acquisition.

 

A market pricing approach is needed that will reflect the individual’s value in the market, not his or her job’s value in the market. Skill based pay does a much better job than paying according to “what their job is worth” of retaining those individuals who are critical to the organizations skill needs.

 

Jobs don’t have a worth; individuals do, and at a time of economic expansion it is particularly important that individuals be paid what they are worth in the market.

Talent Intelligence – Are You Investing in the Right Kinds of People Data? David Wilkins | Employer Branding News | Scoop.it

One of the items we covered in the webinar was the concept of over-investment and under-investment around talent data. Across both data proficient and data deficient groups, we found that organizations typically have pretty good data about tactical data, but almost no information around strategic metrics. Here are a few examples:

 

Workforce Data

Hiring and Onboarding

Performance and Compensation

Barriers to Change

How good managers keep their workers smiling, Arte Nathan

How good managers keep their workers smiling, Arte Nathan | Employer Branding News | Scoop.it

I once had a colleague ask how we trained our employees to smile. I told him we didn’t. We hired the people who smiled during the interview, and then told them to just keep smiling when they worked.


Now here’s the story about what good managers can do to keep employees smiling.

 

Welcome employees — everyday!
Give them a warm initial welcome.
Follow the golden rule
Explain “why”
Catch people doing things right
Ask questions and really listen to the answers
Be fair

What Employees Really Want—and 4 Ways to Deliver it, Rieva Lesonsky

What Employees Really Want—and 4 Ways to Deliver it, Rieva Lesonsky | Employer Branding News | Scoop.it

How can you keep employees engaged, satisfied and loyal to your business? These questions are more important than ever in today’s challenging economy. Few small businesses can afford to lose a key employee to the competition, or to spend valuable time searching for, interviewing and training replacement workers.

 

With employees feeling stultified by the lack of advancement opportunities and vanishing salary increases that accompanied the Great Recession, you might think offering them more money—higher salaries, raises or bonuses—is key to keeping your staff happy. You’d be wrong.

 

What employees really want is recognition:

- Do it all year long. 

-Avoid favoritism. 

-Be inclusive. 

-Value employees as people.
