Your Top 6 Practices for a Best-in-Class Talent Experience

How to build your talent experience empire based on what actually works

You’ve seen the stats. The relatively passé engagement headlines like “your people want to quit”, “nobody is happy in your organization”, and “the world is on fire”. Being so tethered in the research and benchmarking side of these global trends, we get it. We understand the perceived fear mongering narratives that can accompany these soundbites can sometimes overwhelm and/or fall into the category of “yeah, maybe you’re right, but we’ll find a way to survive”. We get it, we understand, we can empathize – so much so, that we’d like to offer an alternative.

Today, instead of focusing on what doesn’t work and why you should start binge-watching Netflix because the obstacles ahead of you are far too great to possibly overcome, let’s look at what does actually work, based on hard data-driven insights.

So, what works?

Our findings showed organizations who were able to turn their data insights into tangible actions effectively and efficiently were able to tap into a powerful positive gain spiral that generated improved HR practices and performance, resulting in increased revenue growth per employee and overall.

In particular, our research showed best-in-class organizations distinguished themselves on six key areas of practice:

  1. Invest in talent mobility
  2. Building an agile career development mindset
  3. Enabling careers (at all levels)
  4. Empower leaders and managers to become career champions
  5. Increase visibility of talents and career paths
  6. Build leader coaching capabilities

In turn, this allowed them to:

  • Build strong internal talent pools to meet strategic needs
  • Retain talent via higher rates of internal recruitment
  • More lateral career moves allowing employees to build career capital
