Talent Management, recruiting and retaining talent

Recruiting and retaining the right employees is a key issue for many organizations. The solution to this task can be summarized by concepts such as employer branding and talent management. The core of employer branding is the creation of a strong, sound and attractive image of the organization as a workplace. This image consists of the current and former employees’ perception of the organization. The main focus when it comes to talent management consists of identifying, developing and retaining individuals with great potential. Good talent management leads to higher levels of engagement. When working with talent management it is important to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do the employees continuously discuss professional development with managers, HR or someone else with similar responsibilities?
  • Do the employees have the opportunity for the required learning and development?
  • Do the employees have the opportunity to do what they do best?
  • Are the current work assignments stimulating and challenging enough for the employees to thrive and succeed?
