Replacing Top Talent

Today's tight employment environment requires that you actively manage a talent retention strategy and have Performance Management systems in place to help identify and nurture your top talent. Replacing your top talent is vastly more expensive and time consuming than resourcing or developing your own Human Capital from further down the organisation.

The HR department is increasingly being called upon to provide Talent Management software solutions to Succession Planning as well as a host of other questions such as:

  • Who do we spend our development dollars on ?
  • Who is ready to take over this critical role ?
  • When will this person be ready for their next promotion ?

Improve Retention

Succession Planning has a direct impact on reducing staff turnover. As soon as the organisation starts collecting data on employees qualifications, their aspirations, readiness for a new role and so on, your employees realize they are being considered for career advancement.

In most organisations, this process only happens for the executive team. However, with the improvement in technology, this process can now be conducted for the entire organisation. The net effect is that a tighter bond develops between the employee and the organisation. The employee now knows that their career aspirations are finally being taken seriously and that the prospect of career advancement is real, tangible and a high probability if they are able to continue to perform.

Focus Development Spend

Once you have implemented a Succession Planning system, you are then able to identify your High Potential Talent pool and focus your Development budget on your staff with the highest potential and best organisational fit.
