Promotions, pay rises and bonuses… the traditional toolkit for attracting and retaining talent is a bit broken. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, many businesses are facing a squeeze on finances and simply can’t afford to fund these escalating costs. Secondly, in many cases these are not the right tools for the job. There’s a time and a place for pay hikes, but often people are craving something more – a sense of purpose, choice and vision.
“Our performance management approach isn’t motivating”
“Millennials don’t consider us an appealing brand to work for”
“Our managers don’t know how to get the best out of our talent”
“Our engagement scores are low”
“We need a more ambitious mind-set in our organisation”
“We need to find motivating career pathways for our people”
“We want our managers to be able to coach their teams”
It may sound simple, but the secret to finding and keeping talent is growing it. If you can harness and nurture the brightest minds, your organisation has an equally bright future.
