Talent Processes Are More Important Now Than Ever

“In a poll conducted by human-resources consultant Right Management at the end of 2009, 60% of workers said they intended to leave their jobs when the market got better.” – Wall Street Journal, May 25th 2010
What are you doing to retain your superstars?  What talent processes are you using to insure you don’t lose 60% of your team? Based on The 7 Hidden Reasons Employees Leave by Leigh Branham, employees leave because:
  1. Job not as expected
  2. Job doesn’t fit talents and interests
  3. Little or no feedback/coaching
  4. No hope for career growth
  5. Feel devalued and unrecognized
  6. Feel overworked and stressed out
  7. Lack of trust or confidence in leaders
Talent process improve your chances to retain your superstars as valuable contributors to your organization.  A comprehensive selection process addresses job expectations (#1), job fit (#2), and organization fit (#4).  A robust performance process addresses feedback (#3), recognition (#5), workload (#6) and trust (#7).
As the economy improves, expect your superstars to have many opportunities to leave.  Implementing effective selection and performance processes (like SelectAdvantage and PerformanceAdvantage) now will empower your leaders to successfully hold on to your superstars.
