  10. 10. The First Phase of Talent Management is Talent Planning. In this phase, the organization establishes defined competencies and sets criteria to measure its talent skills. Needs can be derived from the organization's vision and strategic objectives.
  11. 11. • Talent Focus: Once you know what your organization needs, you can start thinking about what type of talent potential to focus on. • Competency Definition: Competencies are lasting individual attributes that cause or predict high levels of performance. Defining competencies is a process of defining the specific, usable talents that your employees need in order to meet the organization's objectives and strategic goals. • Measurement Criteria: To evaluate, measure, and develop competencies, you need to establish particular criteria for each identified competency. You need objective criteria to measure competencies effectively. • Talent Audit: An audit may include different types of activities designed to evaluate the level of current competence against talent indicators you have defined. Different assessment methods include psychometric tests and questionnaires, in-depth interviews, case studies, and analysis of most recent performance reviews.
  12. 12. The Second Phase of Talent Management is Acquiring Talent. In this phase, the organization should promote its values to encourage talented people to apply and join the organization. In addition to this, executing recruitment cycle is the core of this phase and includes interviewing, selecting and onboarding employees.
  13. 13. • Attracting: This is about inspiring people to want to work for your organization so that they apply when positions become vacant. • Recruiting: A recruiting brand reflects the core values of the organization and communicates the advantages of working for the organization. • Selecting: This includes multiple steps such as interviews, tests, and background checks. • Employing: This is the process of bringing a person into the organization, or it could mean promoting a person within the organization to a new position. During this stage, you negotiate a reimbursement package and starting date, and you provide the employee with a positive introduction – sometimes called onboarding – to the company.

You need to tailor specific programs to help personnel adjust to new technology and upgrade task-specific techniques, and to prepare employees for future work. Performance Management: Performance management encompasses setting goals, giving performance reviews, and providing feedback. A key component of performance management is giving performance appraisals. Although pay increases or bonuses are important to employees, praise can go a long way toward making employees feel valued. To be effective, rewards and recognition programs should align with what is motivating to employees. Coaching & Mentoring: Coaching and mentoring develop talent by encouraging people to excel at their work and to learn on the job. The one-on-one reflective nature of these techniques provides a supportive and intimate quality that can engage people on a more emotional level. Mentoring is carried out by an individual with proven success in the area that the person who's mentored wants to learn about. The main role of a mentor is as advice giver. A coach works with a client to achieve specific, identifiable goals. The coach and the client are held accountable to the organization. A coach asks provocative questions to expand the individual's awareness and desire to change.

  17. 17. • Competitive pay and long-term incentives – Pay should be competitive to prevent people from leaving the organization to earn more elsewhere. Long-term incentives such as stock options or vacation days or other benefits increasing over time can encourage people to couple their careers and personal goals with a long-term commitment to your organization. • Career Planning – To retain up-and-coming talented people, an organization has to provide them with genuine opportunities for advancement. • Flexible working arrangements – When working arrangements are inflexible and fixed, the options available to people are circumscribed – forcing them to choose between staying with or leaving an organization. • Talent Culture: Employees need to derive satisfaction from their work, feel respected, and be physically comfortable. Managers need to monitor these levels of satisfaction so they can forestall problems before people leave an organization. Positive work environment is a key factor to retain talent
  18. 18. TALENT GAP Talent Gap also known as skill gap, is where there are jobs but less qualified or skilled people to fill them.
  19. 19. Measuring Talent Management by Building the Employee Gap Analysis Select the right candidate with the desired level of proficiency, identify the skills gap of the candidate to the position, mitigate the risks of the skills gap, and upon hiring the candidate, develop a continuous professional development plan so they succeed in the position and so the organization can benefit from the employee’s continuous alignment with the needs of the position and the goals of the organization
  20. 20. Here are the basics of how the Employee Gap Analysis works: • What are the KSA’s needed for the position? • Identify areas of proficiency needed and include weighted multiple choice questions in the application process. • Once the candidate has demonstrated they have the required minimum level of proficiency, then they move on to the interview. • Upon being hired, their responses to the application questions turn into their Professional Development Plan.
  21. 21. • Skill gaps are recognized and the new hire is provided learning opportunities by the organization such as training and classes to improve their proficiency in their role. • Their proficiency level is reassessed at least every 90 days to ensure it is increasing. If their proficiency is not increasing – or it is decreasing – managers can easily, and objectively, have a conversation with the employee about their development. • As the employee changes positions, their PDP will update as well with the needs of the position.
