RETENTION OF KEY TALENT

An organisation can try and differentiate itself through producing innovative new products, cutting prices or identifying a gap in the market.However, competitors will always be in pursuit; copying and modifying what has already been achieved. However, the replication of qualified and engaged employees is nearly impossible.

Talent has evolved over the past century. Organisation’s sources of economic value have steadily moved away from industrialisation and automation (processes) towards knowledge and talent (people). Therefore employees should no longer be seen as an expense but as a competitive advantage.
The changing workforce demographics and the war for talent require organisations to go beyond mere recruitment and turn their focus towards attraction. Attraction can be facilitated through the establishment of a strong and appealing employment brand. Consequently the talent management process must be a proactive process to allow for the optimisation of organisational excellence. An effective talent management system should not solely focus on talent acquisition but should establish talent organisation fit which leads to the development of a superior workforce. We can partner with you to ensure that your organisational talent is recognised and managed as a critical resource promoting organisational success.
It is critical to highlight that no blue print exists for talent management as every organisation’s culture, resource and needs differ. We will ensure success by assisting you in creating a local definition of talent management (organisation specific). Furthermore the talent management process will allow for the recruitment, retention and development of talented individuals in such a manner that their inputs can be fully utilised to achieve organisational goals. We will ensure alignment is achieved between the talent process and overall business strategy as it will ensure the correct quality and quantity of talent at the right time and place.
