There's been a shift in the U.S. corporate world today toward talent management processes that truly support workers in being the best they can be. Have you noticed?
Are you seeing what I’m seeing? I’ve noticed a shift in the U.S. corporate world today toward talent management processes that truly support workers in being the best they can be. As a team leader myself, a large part of my role is helping my team members broaden their vision of themselves and what they can accomplish. There’s an interesting change taking place today in organizational culture that parallels this thinking. This shift isn’t just about employees working to their fullest capacity; it’s about redesigning and realigning HR process to help employees grow and develop as people.
Here are just a few examples:
Some of these changes reflect companies’ willingness to listen to employees and adapt. For instance, the TalentBoard Candidate Experience Report reveals a positive correlation between the number of opportunities candidates have to present their skills, knowledge, and experience during the hiring process and their overall satisfaction with that process. Millennials, now the largest generation in the U.S. workforce, want feedback 50% more often than other employees.
As with any shift, there’s a spectrum of adoption: Some companies are making all of these changes, some are making a few. I’m betting that the companies which truly engage in supporting their employees’ well-being will also be those who raise the bar on workforce performance and talent acquisition in the future.
