The first step in maximizing your talent is to ensure you have the right people for the job. This sounds like a basic step. If you’re looking for a sales person, you look for someone who has experience in a sales role. If they’ve sold the types of products or services you deliver, even better. If they’ve been successful doing it for someone else, they’ll be successful doing it for you right?
Your business is unique. You have a unique culture and strategy. What you expect of a certain role might be very different than the expectations of another company, the people you’re hiring and even others in your own organization.
To maximize your employees’ success and yours, Stratt Consulting’s Talent Acquisition services can help you:
Create clearly defined and agreed-upon descriptions of your job roles, how they fit within your organization, and how they tie to your overall business strategy. Chances are, if your organization isn’t clear and in synch on exactly what you expect of a role, your employees will be confused as well.
Define competency models that identify the capabilities or skills needed to successfully perform a role. These will be your consistent framework to select, measure, and develop your people.
Formulate a hiring process that helps you select the people with the right skills to succeed in your organization. Hiring based on performance and capability versus experience alone, will help you ensure both you and your people are set up for success.
Develop career progression paths to outline how individuals can grow within their roles and be promoted into ever increasing roles and responsibilities. Your employees will be more motivated to succeed if they can see a clear path to how they can grow within your organization.
