Why you need to build your ALIGNED® talent strategy right now

Talent is a critical factor in maintaining a competitive advantage for the future success of your organisation. Without a focus on talent, organisations like yours often struggle to attract, retain and develop skilled employees, putting you at a disadvantage compared to your competitors who invest in talent management.

Your people deserve better

Employees who are not effectively managed or developed may underperform, leading to decreased productivity and lower overall performance levels within the organisation. This can result in missed opportunities, reduced efficiency, and diminished profitability.

These people who feel undervalued or unfulfilled in their roles are more likely to seek opportunities elsewhere. Without effective talent management practices in place, your organisations may be experiencing high turnover rates, leading to increased recruitment costs, loss of institutional knowledge, and disruptions in workflow.

The ALIGNED® talent model puts organisational strategy at the heart of your talent development

When you work with me to define and design your talent strategy, we start with organisational strategy.

The heart of your talent strategy will be built around the overall strategic focus and goals of the organisation. To achieve that strategy, you need the right people, with the right skills, to perform in the critical and specialist roles required to deliver that overall outcome.

We will ensure your people's goals and objectives are linked to the strategic priorities. While many critical and specialist roles will have a strongly defined link to the strategy, others may feel that their contribution is slightly vaguer.

We will focus on building the skills required to deliver your strategy needs to apply to people at all levels. People identified as high performing with high aspiration, quite rightly, are recognised as your ‘top talent’ but the skills and experience of everyone also needs equal focus to build your future top talent.
