Employees are the biggest assets of your company, so you need to “nurse” them the right way:
Talent mapping involves finding the right talent, putting talent in the right roles, and retaining top talent through career pathing. It’s a continuous activity that grows and iterates with the business as needs change.
Talent mapping requires you to take three essential actions:
- Proactively identify any new roles your organization will need to drive its business strategy
- Refresh existing job roles and descriptions to more accurately reflect your organizational needs in executing your business strategy
- Create compelling upward and lateral career paths and communicate those advancement opportunities to retain top talent
It’s crucial that all mapped roles are tied to delivering tangible results to propel your business strategy forward. Just as important, talent mapping needs to be visible in your organization.
