Talent Management Excellence

Year 2020 saw a drastic transformation in the way organizations managed talent. Managing the remote workforce and meeting the dynamic needs of employees were quite challenging. In order to attract and retain top talent today, organizations must be open to shifting their approaches on assessing the value their workforce brings to the table.

Key Takeaways

About This Report

1. Clarity Developing strategic agility starts with getting clear on winning even if it is for very short-term timeframes. Although we are in a time of a lot of unknowns, there are things we do know. It might only be for the week or the month but get crystal clear on what is clear. Without clarity, people and organizations typically end up going in many different directions, especially when faced with unexpected change.

2. Focus If getting clear on winning represents the starting point for strategic agility, keeping people focused on the goal is the driving force behind getting there.

3. Connection Here's the tricky part - people won't buy into your vision of winning unless they feel connected to the organization. Connection starts with having a powerful vision people can believe in and feel good about, and it also requires giving honest, candid performance feedback on a regular basis.
