RETAINING HIGH-POTENTIALS TO DRIVE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE FROM INDIVIDUAL PERSPECTIVE

1. INTRODUCCIÓN 2. TALENT RETENTION
Las organizaciones, a lo largo de todo el mundo, comparten como una de sus máximas prioridades conseguir la retención de los empleados más talentosos, “el talento”, por ser esta variable, una de las claves para conseguir alcanzar una ventaja competitiva organizacional en el mercado. Así, viene reflejado en el reciente estudio de Global Human Capital Trends de Bersin, 2014, dónde en una encuesta realizada a 2532 líderes organizacionales de 94 países diferentes, la retención de los empleados era la prioridad número 2, dentro de la gestión del talento.

Junto con lo anterior, hay que tener en consideración que justamente los empleados con mayor talento son los más complejos de retener así (Abbasi and Hollman, 2000, pag.333) aluden a que son “the smartest and most talented employees [who] are the most mobile and the ones who are disproportionately more likely to leave”

Teniendo en consideración la importancia de la retención de los altos potenciales, y los esfuerzos que deben hacer las organizaciones en su retención, debemos considerar que ya algunos estudios, apuntaban a que la relación empresa-empleado está experimentado cambios muy relevantes que tienen implicaciones para la atracción, retención y motivación de los empleados con más talento (Horwitz et al., 2003; Roehling et al., 2000; Turnley and Feldman, 2000). El incremento de la competencia a nivel internacional, la desregularización de los mercados o la globalización, fomentan que el compromiso organizativo de los empleados a todos los niveles de la organización, sea cada vez menor, en contraposición al beneficio y búsqueda de un desarrollo individual-profesional más allá del proyecto dentro de una organizacional (King, 2000; Cappelli, 2001). Al mismo tiempo que el…...

...Resourcing Talent – Talent Planning in an Organisation 1. Four factors that affect an organisations approach to attracting talent are: * Expansion – A company that keeps expanding attracts a lot of new talent who want job security and promotion prospects. * Development opportunities – A company who offer learning and development opportunities will attract a lot of talent who want to learn new skills to better their career. Without training prospects a lot of talent will be lost. * Salary – A company with lower levels of salary wouldn’t attract as much talent as higher levels of pay. Workers want their hard work to reflect in their wages. * Benefits packages – A company with good benefits package also attracts talent. People want to see what the company offers to safeguard and assist their employees. 2. Three organisation benefits of attracting and retaining a diverse workforce are: * A varied array of employees means different levels of skills and knowledge, enabling each sector of an organisation to excel. * A diverse workforce means people possess different attitudes and values whether these values are derived from race, religion or even nationality. When all brought together can benefit the company when dealing with a wide range of people and even internationally. * Creativity and productivity would increase. People with different backgrounds have different ways of thinking. Enabling different views and ideas to emerge. 3....

Wide variations exist in how the term ‘talent’ is defined across differing sectors, and organizations may prefer to adopt their own interpretations rather than accepting universal or prescribed definitions. That said, it is helpful to start with a broad definition and, from our research, we have developed a working definition for both ‘talent’ and ‘talent management’:  Talent consists of those individuals who can make a difference to organizational......

...Microsoft: Competing on Talent (A) Christopoher A Bartlett Summary of Case In summer 1999, a front page article on Wall Street Journal reported that: “Tired of grueling deadlines, frustrated by the bureaucracy that has accompanied Microsoft’s explosive growth, or lured away by the boom in high tech start ups, dozens of the company’s most capable leaders, all around 40, have opted out – at least temporarily….” Foundations of Microsoft’s human resources philosophies, policies and practices Recruitment: attracting the best and the brightest Bill Gates had long recognized that it took exceptional people to write outstanding software. In the initial stages, they recruited “smart friends” extremely intelligent but not necessarily experienced, new college graduates. In 1992, Gates acknowledged that “Take our 20 best people away, and I will tell you that Microsoft will become an unimportant company”. He considered helping his managers hire the best of all possible candidates as his greatest accomplishment. For Gates, acquired knowledge was less important than “smarts” – the ability to think creatively, and experience was less important than ambition – the drive to get things done. And, to raise the bar continually. One of the prime responsibility of Steve Ballmer, since he was hired in 1980 as assistant to the President was recruiting coordinator. Steve’s mantra was: ...

THE CONTEXT OF TALENT MANAGEMENT As South Africa embarks on it’s journey into the second decade of democracy, few can argue that tremendous strides have been made on the political, economic, social and legislative fronts. Much of our legislation and policy directions are amongst the most progressive in the world. However, many challenges remain. One of these is the shortage of professional and managerial skills and the imbalances in terms of race and gender at these levels. Another, is the need to build a robust and entrepreneurial SMME sector which will create the jobs needed to absorb the unemployed in the economy. “Staffing is the new speed limit to growth. It is not the access to capital or technology that will constrain the growth of enterprises or the South African economy, but rather the lack of adequate skills to support organizational growth plans. The traditional channels of education and training are no longer providing skills in sufficient numbers nor are they necessarily aligned to organizational needs. Organizations must participate in the development of relevant skills if they are to survive.” (Italia Boninelli, HR Director: Netcare Group1) In a knowledge and......

The current business and economic environment is exposing a host of weaknesses in the talent management practices of many organizations, as well as the lack of a comprehensive understanding of skills, capabilities, key workforces and top talent. Talent strategy is, in fact, as important as any other part of an organization’s overall strategy, regardless of the business conditions. Unfortunately, the harsh glare of the downturn has exposed the fact that the talent planning and management capabilities of many organizations are not equal to the challenges that lie ahead. Smart companies will also keep an eye out for skilled workers who......

...10/6/2015 Renaissance Women My talent is more than one talent which some may call it as being multi-talented. I can do pretty much anything once I put my mind to and once it is shown to me one time I will be able to do it without supervision. Below I will list a few of my many talents and compare them from the internet with the outcome of my own work. While home after giving birth to my daughter I picked up a hobby in making baby shower pins. A friend of mine was having a baby shower and needed help in getting her pins done. She was running out of funds so I volunteer in making the pins for her. I went to my local novelty store to see how the pins looked and are made. Once I saw how easy it was I bought all the products that I needed and began making them myself. Once I finished the pins I was very proud of myself and began showing people what I had done. I had gotten great response back which lead to people placing orders and me making this hobby into something that makes me money. My next talent is decorating for parties as well as doing party bags for kid events. My family is the type where we celebrate everything in our lives whether it’s a birth, a birthday, graduation etc. My older cousin was having a party for her son (my little cousin) and the theme was ninja turtles. She asked me if I was able to help her and I agreed to do the party bags. I looked online for unique ideas to make ninja turtle party bags, which I did. Once I found a cute idea I sent it to her......

Talent Management

...Good talent and streamlined business processes are key for the survival and success of any organization, particularly in an upside economy and bad business climate. Although most organizations can lay claim to the establishment of well defined business processes, good talent that is could be difficult to find and keep. Even when an organization has such talent, any measures taken in difficult business cycles could result in such talents being overworked, negated and potentially underappreciated as organizations attempt to do more with far less. Ironically it is the same talents or lack thereof that could ultimately lead either to the demise or survival of the organization. This recognition and awareness has now forced organizations not only to pay close attention to their bottom line, but in acquiring the best and brightest workforce with developed processes measures to support and empower them. The old approach of dropping your talents in tough business cycles has now through the concept of talent management given way to not only holding on to such talents but given them a stake in the direction the organization pursues to remain and retain competitive edge. Talent management is about the sustainability and growth of the organization through empowerment of an organizational workforce. Talent management approach hinges on four Principals: Identification of right mix of talents; Communication; Support and recognition and finally Appreciation.(site) The concept of talent......

Talent management also has another target which is to develop talented employees leadership and management functions critical to the organization’s success. The core idea of talent management is developing the human resources to attain organization’s strategic objectives. Why an organization does need talent management?

They do not need become extraordinary and talented but are often visible and getting caught by the eyes of top management. This situation makes many talented people inside the organization hide their presence, like a big fishes that love to stay in a deep water. Many talented people join the organization with a dream for achievement, success, and career development. Unfortunately, they realize and experience true culture of the organization, they become frustated and feel neglected. They gradually lose their interest, and become not innovative, and less participative. Through talent management, attention can be given to all......
