The war for talent began in the 80s with the advent of information age and the war has remained unabated as the demand for talent has consistently been on the increase and the propensity for people to move from one organization to the other has also remained one of the characteristics of today’s workplace.
The war for talent is a major challenge for most organizations but those who respond proactively and aggressively will gain competitive advantage. However, a few organizations are adept at talent management and development and vast majority are yet to give the required attention to this critical success lever.
Talent is now a critical driver of business performance and the company’s ability to attract, develop and retain talent will foster and sustain competitive business edge now and in the future.
Invariably, it is time for organizations to fundamentally rethink and rebuild their talent development strategies as winning the war for talent transcends just winning the recruitment battle. The need to adopt a pervasive development approach leveraging a set of integrated talent development initiatives ranging from stretch assignments, coaching and mentoring, projects, training and other on-the-job learning initiatives cannot be over emphasized.
The goal of talent development is to attract, develop , motivate and retain productive and engaged employees who are passionate about the success of their organizations.
Experience has shown that at the beginning of every calendar year, organizations spend quality time to articulate and put together the a comprehensive Personal Developmental Plan for the talent pool incorporating specific on-the-job learning initiatives and other classroom interventions . A cursory look at implementation update often reveals a huge gap between the planned and actual implementation of the programs captured on the Personal development plan owing to the non-implementation of quite a good number of the planned classroom programs.
