Talent development is a set of integrated organizational HR processes designed to attract, develop, motivate, and retain productive, engaged employees throughout the employee lifecycle.
The goal of talent development is to create a high-performance, sustainable organization that meets its strategic and operational goals and objectives. Companies that have strong and established talent development programs enjoy higher rates of success.
NAED is positioned to be the leading resource for growing or establishing talent development initiatives with our members.
Improved Recruitment: Having top talent at all levels of the company is one of the best ways to ensure continued success. The quality of the employees directly correlates to the quality of the business.
Improved Understanding of Employees: Through employee assessments management can gain insight into the development needs of their employees including career aspirations, abilities, strengths and weaknesses. This knowledge makes it is easier to determine how to motivate them.
Putting the Right Person in the Right Job: Skill or competency mapping allows employers to take stock of skill inventories throughout the company. When an employee’s interests are in alignment with his or her job profile, productivity and job satisfaction increases.
Keeping Top Talent: Retaining employees is critical to the management and growth of a company. Companies that fail in keeping high-quality talent risk losing to their competition.
