It’s July 2012, do you know where your best talent is?
If you don’t, it is certain your top competitors know how to find your top talent. If you believe media reports about the sluggish job market and think your best employees are not vulnerable to leaving, you are mistaken. The truth is, the war for top talent never ceased during the Great Recession. If you have not developed a plan to identify your top talent and how to retain them, now is the time. It starts with Workforce Planning.
Workforce Planning is a broad term with a multitude of paths yet it is a critical initiative toward developing a successful talent management strategy. The essence of Workforce Planning is to understand your current talent to measure against future talent needs. This includes knowing and retaining your best talent.
