Talent Management


Talent Management – Evidence Review


Talent management is based on the idea that organisations need to attract, retain and develop top performers to attain and maintain competitive advantage and that this is best done through a proactive talent-management process. The aim is to create a performance-oriented culture, reduce staff turnover, create high levels of employee satisfaction and generate a cadre of qualified replacements for existing staff. To do this you need to assess the potential of your current staff through performance appraisal, develop measurement scales for performance and potential, describe what people need to be able to do to be good at a job and weigh up the importance of different skills and talents (L. A. Berger, 2004)
