Here is a brief overview of the six principles of talent management.

Alignment with strategy

Consider the type of talent the organization needs based on its business strategy. If a company is looking to improve its technology leadership, it can embed technical talent or encourage employees to develop technology-related skills. Because business strategy changes over time, it’s also important to adapt and rethink your approach to talent.

Internal consistency

Talent management services must ensure consistency between talent management systems within the organization. For example, employees may benefit from feedback and performance evaluation on a quarterly basis, but this process must be consistent with the relevant positions throughout the organization and its subsidiaries. Similarly, the remuneration must be similar for the same position. Otherwise, some employees will not feel valued due to unfair treatment.

Management involvement

Employees are more likely to stay with an organization that helps them develop and learn new skills. As such, companies must provide opportunities for growth through career development programs, job rotations and new assignments. According harvard business review, professional development is the best way to improve corporate culture. In fact, 93% of employees said they would stay with a company longer if it invested in their career.

Cultural integration

Many organizations hire based on a person’s fit for their culture. They have core values ​​and principles and assess individuals on whether or not they embody them. For example, a company that values ​​creativity may prefer candidates who have a track record of pursuing creative endeavors and projects. Likewise, they can also set up training programs and activities that remind employees of the company’s values, so that they respect them.

Employer branding through differentiation

What is your unique selling point for attracting and retaining top talent? Why would people want to work for your company? To stand out, employers need to differentiate themselves from their competitors and increase brand awareness in local communities. Some examples are launching campaigns at universities that focus on unique long-term opportunities, benefits and promotions.

Balancing global and local needs

For organizations with an international presence, talent management can seem complicated. Managers and HR teams may need to adjust their processes based on the cultural and behavioral norms of a particular country.

As a result, companies can opt for different levels of autonomy to balance global and local needs. A US company may grant a greater degree of autonomy to talent departments in South Korea or Japan due to the vast differences in work culture. Similarly, companies such as Starbucks and McDonald’s have staples like frappuccinos or chicken, but they’re also introducing products tailored to local tastes.

Akamai’s FlexBase program and a MindGym-backed network of change catalysts give employees the flexibility and support they need for the future of work.

Akamai, a technology company that serves organizations and industries around the world, tries to be at the forefront of the workforce. Their most recent step into the future of work has bolstered their culture, productivity and retention in the form of employee autonomy and flexibility.

FlexBase, Akamai’s global flexible work program, enables 95% of its approximately 10,000 employees (from San Mateo to Zurich to Bangalore) to choose their workplace (office, home or hybrid) according to which suits them best. Combined with an integrated change management support system (and a partnership with Mind Gym), Akamai is preparing for the future of work.

Back to (Flex)Base

Akamai has given employees the ability to choose where they work most efficiently. From a change management perspective, FlexBase has shaken things up. The desktop was where “a lot of our message is heard,” says Michelle Bartlett, director of change management at Akamai. “It was essential to be transparent that the switch to FlexBase is not about wanting people to work from home to save on property expenses, but about giving people the choice to work where they feel most comfortable. productive and at ease.”

To ensure and support consistent and successful change, Akamai has partnered with MindGym, a company that uses behavioral science-based approaches to help other organizations create and sustain organizational change. For a company of their size, “Akamai is quite progressive in terms of change management,” says Jamie Maul, regional vice president of MindGym’s client team. “They have two or three people dedicated to it, which is to say it’s an organization that has changed a lot. It’s a technology company, so they often change the way they work and their structure. »

MindGym’s expertise in behavioral science and change management helped Akamai launch the Change Catalysts program, which has enabled hundreds of internal Akamai employees to act as MindGym-trained central translators to mitigate the disruption caused by the change in the business by incorporating FlexBase and beyond.

“For leaders, the science behind managing change is the level of uncertainty people feel,” says Janet Ahn, president and chief behavioral scientist at MindGym. “If it’s very uncertain how it affects them immediately, they’re more likely to be scared.” Ahn says transparent communication is essential for any kind of change.

From a behavioral science perspective, a program like FlexBase is important because for some, autonomy matters more than just production. “When people feel like they’re being micromanaged, that’s when they feel like they’re losing their agency — so having autonomy is important,” says Ahn. “Having this choice allows them to feel that the organization is sensitive to their needs. Anytime you have an organization that seems to genuinely care about its employees, that’s a pretty strong signal of a positive culture.

In Akamai’s “Gateway” system to FlexBase, employees can schedule when they want to come into the office so that Akamai can tailor their office experience based on when people are actually there.

“If I was the only one going in on the 19th floor, that’s not really why I’m going into the office,” Bartlett said. “We created neighborhoods of workers who could line up, collaborate, and rub shoulders with the people they collaborate with the most. And we needed the data to be able to do that.

For talent leaders and managers who were always in the office, figuring out how to make sure their employees stayed focused and got their jobs done required training that focused on building trust and improving conversations with their employees. MindGym has helped create nudges to have those conversations and bond virtually, Bartlett says, but most of the actual change management work is done by internal employees themselves — as catalysts for change.

Catalyze change

The catalysts for change were determined through a self-selection process, with approximately 300 people currently registered. MindGym set up a kick-off session focused on understanding behaviors and having conversations about change. MindGym worked with Akamai’s change catalysts “directly on the Why and what they stand for,” says Ahn. They held a “Building Belief” training for the catalysts to fully understand the changes before adopting and supporting them.

Akamai Headquarters in Cambridge, MA

“MindGym was a natural partner as we considered how to equip our change catalysts with the right skills and abilities to successfully support all of Akamai as we grow FlexBase,” said Bartlett. MindGym research shows that transparency and building trust increase job satisfaction and reduce turnover.

After the first two sessions, MindGym developed toolkits and interactive PDFs to support change catalysts and digital nudges to foster community. The nudges have been reworked with Akamai and channeled to stimulate conversations and even practice difficult conversations. “MindGym’s materials really helped support some of the foundational things we were doing with our change catalysts,” says Bartlett.

Beyond FlexBase, Akamai’s internal change catalysts now act as a change support network across countless projects. For example, in a productivity experiment conducted by the change management team, change catalysts showed their peers how to use different tools, such as an interactive slideshow. Change catalysts learn and understand new tools and concepts first, then help their colleagues learn them throughout the company. “Everything we’ve done, we started with our catalysts for change and then we reinforced it with the rest of the company,” says Bartlett.

Traditionally, Akamai’s change management team has stuck to its motto of communicating early and often, but for this productivity experiment, it instead went through its entire new change enablers to see the extent of its reach. before announcing the change to the whole company. The result? “3,000 active participants in the first quarter as we announced, just to change catalysts. That’s 30% of employees,” says Bartlett. “It was pretty amazing.”

Change Catalysts help Akamai talent leaders understand what they aren’t hearing or seeing. “They’re almost an extension of our employee resource groups,” says Khalil Smith, vice president of inclusion, diversity and engagement at Akamai.

Smith says change catalysts serve as a connection point for those who feel more comfortable discussing feedback or expressing disconnect with a peer rather than a program manager. Employees like knowing they can have direct lines to people who can improve their experience, especially when things are new and changing, Smith added. For those at Akamai who want to work in the office or in a hybrid, it can be as simple as letting a change catalyst know that the coffee maker is down or the office is disorganized.

“It’s almost like instead of going to your parents, you go to your other siblings,” Smith says. “This group has received training, education and guidance, they’ve been behind the curtain a bit more. They’re part of the monthly calls where we talk about what’s going to happen with FlexBase.

Change and effect

Since implementing FlexBase, levels of inclusion and engagement at Akamai have remained high and even increased. They recently added FlexBase-specific questions to their quarterly surveys to see what employees think about recent changes and the future of work. In many cases, the satisfaction percentages around FlexBase are “even higher,” says Smith. “We’re in the mid-90s of people saying ‘I feel like I can do my work remotely’, ‘I feel like I’m being supported remotely’, ‘I can still connect with my teammates.'”

Additionally, Akamai continues to see an increased diversity of experiences across the organization. Since introducing FlexBase, Akamai has hired more women and people of color and increased its geographic representation. “We’ve opened up so many other parts of the country and around the world,” Smith says.

Smith himself loves Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where he and his family call home; he is not interested in living elsewhere and commuting again. “When we think about these inclusion, diversity and engagement goals, we really look at the things that move all three of them, because it’s easier to move one of them, potentially sacrificing something else. “, adds Smith. “But FlexBase is the one that really moved all three.”

Akamai has included remote, internal, and hybrid environments as “a new dimension of diversity,” Smith says. Akamai measures promotion rates by gender or different backgrounds along with other traditional metrics, but this shift to flexible working brings new variables into the equation. Proximity or distance bias will need to be measured in the data to continue their commitment to equal opportunity for all employees whether fully remote, in-office or hybrid to ensure all employees are treated (and promoted) fairly.

In the digital world, new change management challenges will arise. “How can we ensure that we are inclusive in our technology? How do you make sure everyone can hear, see, contribute and collaborate? Smith asks. These are the new challenges that catalysts for change can continue to help Akamai solve.

A flexible future

The next step for Akamai’s change management goals is to find the best way to support and scale its office space. Launched in May, the program aims to rethink what’s possible in the office, with sessions open to all employees. Change catalysts will play a crucial role in understanding what employees want from an office, whether it’s a space for collaboration, quiet work or otherwise.

Trained catalysts for change [Akamai] great perspective in creating programs and support for our employees,” says Bartlett. “The two-way communication really helped us refine our message so that we were very clear about what the programs meant, so that [employees] had no misconceptions.

But without the buy-in from senior management, none of this would have been possible. One thing Akamai has understood since the inception of FlexBase is having a CEO and executives who ask people what they want and look at the data, Smith says. “Let’s follow what people tell us that interests them.”

Coaching can be an important tool for equitable access to opportunities, career paths, and employee retention.

Coaching in the workplace has become mainstream. Nearly 80% of the largest American companies, according to LinkedInare now investing in the coaching of their employees.

The application of coaching as a social benefit is not new; its roots go back decades in the world of executive style management coaching. But what was once the preserve of the most successful and highest-paid employees of the Fortune 500 is increasingly being offered as a broader employee benefit. Recognizing that coaching can be an important tool for equitable access to opportunities, career paths, and employee retention, employers are now offering coaching at scale.

These coaching sessions have the added benefit of creating a community of learners, which helps employees develop their network, feel less alone when faced with their career challenges, and broaden their vision of possible careers with their employer. Here’s what talent and HR managers need to know about these new forms of scalable coaching.

Integrated into the working day

It turns out that workers have little time in their day to devote to activities like coaching. In fact, a Deloitte study found that the average employee can spend just one percent of their work week to professional development.

In a typical 40-hour workweek, that’s less than five minutes a day. Fortunately, today’s forms of coaching are not limited to rigid, time-consuming counseling sessions. Advancements in technology allow coaching to take many flexible, virtual forms, from a 20-minute video call to a quick round of text check-ins.

Coaching should be focused, focused, and easily integrated into the existing workday. It should feel like a natural part of the job, not an extra chore or after-hours obligation.

Closing the soft skills gap

Employers have long said they struggle to find employees with the right skills for the jobs they’re hiring for. But they don’t just mean technical skills.

According to LinkedIn 2019 Global Talent Trends report, nearly 90% of recruiters say that when a hire doesn’t work out, it’s primarily because of a lack of soft skills. Employers are increasingly looking for employees who possess skills such as teamwork, collaboration, leadership, problem solving and flexibility.

While it’s certainly helpful if employees can present themselves with these attributes from day one, employers can also take matters into their own hands and develop the team members they want to see in the world. Employers should invest in the potential of their workers, not simply expect them to come to the office fully developed.

Coaching enables talented employees to develop the soft skills they need to succeed in the workplace. Ultimately, coaching is about self-control, helping employees set goals, identifying the obstacles that get in the way of achieving those goals, and striving to remove them.

A DEI imperative

In the wake of the 2020 protests and demands for racial justice, employers have continued to step up their efforts on diversity, equity and inclusion. More and more companies have made it a priority not only to hire more people from diverse backgrounds, but also to ensure that these workers have clear paths to advancement.

Researchers to have found Mentoring and coaching programs are among the most impactful DEI initiatives a company can pursue, with these programs increasing racial diversity at the leadership level by up to 24%.

They can help workers acquire the skills they need to move up to higher levels, as well as increase their sense of belonging within the organization. Unfortunately, few people of color receive this type of coaching. More than half of black workers, for example, claim never to have a mentor. Virtual success coaching is finally helping to bridge that gap.

Coaching is an effective way to improve retention, diversity and the overall health of a company. It helps unlock new skills, new relationships, and new avenues for growth.

Investing in accessible and scalable forms of coaching can help meet the needs of the modern workforce and ensure that employees receive the guidance they need to reach their full potential at work. Employers are quickly learning that coaching is not only beneficial to employee well-being, but is ultimately a strategic investment in business success.

How two community training programs have created a new pool of tech talent to meet the needs of local employers.

Buffalo, New York is a bucolic city known for its artistic community and extensive network of parks. It is also one of the largest centers of advanced manufacturing in the region, employing over 66,000 people and generating $6.3 billion in gross regional product.

In the current talent climate, many local employers are struggling to fill in-demand tech positions through traditional talent pipelines.

“As a region, we will need to fill approximately 20,000 vacancies in the advanced manufacturing and clean energy sectors, primarily due to retirements,” said Stephen TuckerPresident and CEO of Northland Manpower Training Center. “But young people either aren’t aware of these jobs or they don’t have the technical skills to do them.”

So city and state leaders stepped in to fill the void.

Billion Buffalo is a state grant program created to invest $1 billion in the local economy to stimulate economic development. Local training programs, including NWTC and TechBuffaloleverage these resources to provide life-changing training to underserved and disadvantaged citizens across the community.

University degree with a kick

NWTC is an industry-focused public-private partnership that works with local employers to develop talent to meet their specific workplace needs. Applicants only need a GED to apply, and selected students have access to free college education through partnerships with SUNY Alfred State College and SUNY Erie Community College. They can choose from a variety of one-year certificates or a two-year associate’s degree.

But NWTC students don’t just take college courses. The learning experience is designed to meet the unique needs of students and employers who support the program. “Instead of taking a reading class or a math class, students take math for machines or standard operating procedures for welders,” Tucker says. This makes each lesson relevant to the work they will eventually do.

The program also surrounds each student with a support team that includes an outreach specialist, career coaches, and admissions and financial aid coordinators who help them overcome any obstacles they may face during their studies. their studies. In addition to providing academic support, the team ensures that students have access to daily transportation, childcare, rental allowances and mental health services throughout the training process. Upon completion of their program, NWTC secures them interviews with one of the partner companies.

The program completion rate is currently 65%, double the national average for community colleges and triple the local average. Tucker attributes this success to the support structure they build around their students and the guidance they offer, from recruiting to job placement. “We’re not trying to just put cigarette butts in the seats. We want them to understand what a career as an electrician or machinist really means,” he says. “Career development theory shows that people will succeed in careers that match their interests, skills, and personality.”

The NWTC has had many success stories, including Derek Frank, who earned a two-year degree after spending time in prison for drug trafficking. Frank is now employed as an electrician earning $60,000 a year, and his 21-year-old son has also completed the program and is now also working in the field.

“It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” Frank said. He liked how the program initially focused on safety, allowing students to learn skills using doorbell circuits and 24-volt applications before moving on to more complex, high-risk lessons. . He also appreciated the involvement of the instructors in his learning process. “They noticed if my grades were dropping and proactively offered tutoring, or help with travel or supplies,” he says. “They made sure there was no reason for me not to pass.”

When Frank graduated, he landed five interviews in two weeks and had several offers to choose from. Now he loves his job. “It’s not just the money. Everything I learned, I now practice on the pitch,” he says. They made it so easy for me.

Data analysis training

TechBuffalo is another innovative workforce development program that provides job-specific training in computer science, data analytics, and other in-demand skills. Their goal is to nurture new tech talent and create an inclusive tech culture, says Sarah Tanbakuchi, CEO and President of TechBuffalo. “Focusing on communities that have historically been underrepresented in tech careers – women, veterans, communities of color – underpins our mission.”

Like NWTC, TechBuffalo partners with local employers to understand the technical skills they need and where there are gaps in the talent pool. Then they create training bootcamps to fill those gaps.

One of its most recent successes is the 12-week full-time data analytics bootcamp pilot, which ran from January to April 2022. The Tanbakuchi team developed the program in conjunction with five Buffalo employers representing automotive, financial services, health care, advanced services manufacturing and foodservice. “Bringing together so many employers from so many different industries was a unique model for community training,” she says. “But this skill set is relevant to all industries.”

Employers have agreed to bring in data analytics experts and HR leadership to help develop the program and create career paths once graduates are hired. “Their long-term success will depend on the hiring manager and subject matter expert developing policies to support employee retention and engagement,” Tanbakuchi says.

General Assembly, who was one of the supporting employers, provided the core curriculum and then worked with SMEs from each of the companies to tailor it to entry-level positions in their organizations.

Then, TechBuffalo engaged community organizations across the region to recruit candidates who, like NWTC applicants, only needed a GED to qualify. They received 160 applications from candidates of all ages and backgrounds. A third of the applicants were women, more than half had household incomes of less than $50,000 a year, and about 40 percent identified as non-white.

To select the final cohort, they used a behavioral assessment and a baseline programming test to determine if the applicants had the ambition and ability to learn the program. “We wanted to make sure we had candidates who had the best chance of success,” she says.

The pilot program had 19 participants who spent 12 weeks in the program full-time. During this time, they provided students with employer-backed financial stipends, as well as daily meals, career counseling, transportation, Wi-Fi, childcare, and any other resources they needed. They also helped them write resumes and practice their interview skills. “We have customized our services for students so that they can focus on learning, because if they can’t focus on learning, it reduces their ability to successfully complete the program,” says Tanbakuchi.

And while the students aren’t guaranteed a job after graduation, the companies that support them — and other members of the community — are eager to meet them.

At the end of the program (which all 19 passed), the students presented capstone projects in front of all the supporting employers, and then the two groups selected who they wanted to interview.

“From there it was a whirlwind,” says Tanbakuchi.

Half of the class landed jobs through these initial interviews, and several more were hired by employers in the community eager to work with this new talent pool. “These students, who had never been exposed to data analytics, are now starting jobs in one of the fastest growing fields in the world,” says Tanbakuchi. “It’s very exciting.”

time to change

The first cohort included Namita Acharya, who worked in admissions at the University of Buffalo International Education but wanted to change careers to a technology field where she could build a better career. She had originally planned to take online classes on her own when she heard about TechBuffalo.

She passed the application test, which involved learning basic SQL skills, and was accepted into the program. “It was exciting because it confirmed that it was something I could do,” says Acharya.

She dove into the training and loved the additional support provided by her instructors, which ranged from programming tips and help to creating a personal pitch and creating her LinkedIn profile. “It was empowering,” she says. “It was a hundred times more valuable than doing it myself online.”

After her final pitch, Acharya landed several interviews and received an offer from ACV Auctions, which was her first choice. She is now a Data Analyst 1, which has given her a better salary, benefits and a vision for the future. “I feel like I’m on a new career path now,” she says.

Find a partner

TechBuffalo and NWTC prove that when employers and community learning programs work together, they can create new talent pools while driving economic mobility for underserved populations.

Tucker notes that in Buffalo there are 3,000 job openings for which his students are qualified. “Partners who support us have access to our students first, and many of them receive multiple offers before they even graduate,” he says. For companies facing constant stress in the job market, partnering with community organizations like NWTC and TechBuffalo just makes good business sense.

It may be called human resource management, human resource development or talent management. Whatever term you use, recruiting, retaining and managing talent is at the heart of every organization.

An organization can choose to manage its talent inclusively or exclusively. Inclusive talent management means that every employee has the same opportunities for education, assignments and promotions. In exclusive talent management, individual selections are competitive and there are doors to future promotions.

The Army suffers from a disconnect between its Talent Management Task Force’s utopian vision of the Army’s talent alignment process and actual talent management.

The talent market is frustrating for soldiers and units. According to the Assignment Interactive Module (AIM), a database that collects information on soldiers’ career preferences, backgrounds, skills and expertise, “Marketplaces are designed to allow officers the widest choice and preference for assignments consistent with Army readiness requirements”.

Instructions for agents using AIM include preference for all jobs in their market and communicating with units to allow the agent and unit to make informed preference decisions. This is an inclusive way to manage talent, but promotions, schools, and command selections create an exclusive talent pool. Each promotion, command, or school selection distinguishes officers and develops their abilities differently.

Manage exclusive talents

The split between the ideal talent management process and the Army assignment process creates problems for soldiers, units, and assignment managers. There will never be a solution without problems, but the Army can solve system and process problems to manage the proprietary talent pool.

The first problem is the use of self-proclaimed and unquantifiable knowledge, skills and behaviors. Allowing a soldier to choose their attributes does not accurately describe the individual’s capabilities. Some officers will limit their selections, while others may enhance their abilities.

Also, AIM is not user friendly to find and select different knowledge, skills or behaviors. The concept allows units to match their needs to a soldier’s abilities, but units rarely update job descriptions with the attributes they want. The overall effect is to waste soldiers and units time.

If the Army is to use its knowledge, skills and behavior framework, there must be a mechanism to verify an individual’s attributes. Non-military organizations use certifications as the primary mechanism for determining a person’s skills. The Army needs to determine how to implement a similar certification process as part of its talent alignment process.

AIM also uses non-binding labels to differentiate jobs, which confuses the system. Assignment managers mark an officer based on their assessment of how that officer performs. These tags include JDAL, KD, OCT, and Former BDE/BN Commander, denoting Joint Assignment List, Key Development Positions, Observer Coach/Trainer Experience, and Brigade Command/Brigadier Experience, respectively. battalion. This information should tell a soldier which jobs they are eligible for and allow a unit to easily identify people for their position. Unfortunately, units do not add these labels to job descriptions and officers favor jobs for which they are not qualified.

Instead, the military should move to binding tags to determine eligibility for certain jobs. Joint Duty, Key and Development, Observer/Controller, and Former Commander designations shall be enforceable. This means that officers with these tags are the only ones allowed to apply for jobs with the same tags, which reduces the number of talent mismatches and recognizes that the military uses proprietary talent management.

Checkmarks, CV

Green ticks and unique resumes are also part of the selection process.

When selecting, a green tick in the unit interest column influences the ranking of assignments more than it should. While advice to officers is to rank assignments according to their desires, it is human nature to seek out belonging. Why would an officer prefer a unit that doesn’t want it?

At the last market I attended, I spent too much time checking the status of checkmarks. When I didn’t see green checkmarks on places I wanted to go, I moved on to units that showed interest in me. As a hiring manager, I used that same logic to rank those who wanted the job above those who didn’t.

The biggest problem with the green tick is: it’s vague. It tells the officer or unit that the other prefers them over a percentage of the total ranking, but it doesn’t specify where they are in the hierarchy. Instead of showing a tick for interest, it should give the officer and unit the current preference rank. Knowing where you fit in the unit or the officer’s preferences will help both make informed decisions.

Finally, the system is limited to a single CV for all jobs. Multiple resumes are one of the main tenets of applying for a job. CV training courses instruct participants to prepare a unique CV for each job application. The candidate adapts his CV to the requirements of a specific position.

Under the current system of the Army Talent Alignment Process, officers can only create one resume. The agent must adapt the CV to the type of job he wants or create a universal CV. The system should allow agents to customize their resumes and share specific resumes with jobs listed on the market.

The most significant process issue with the Army’s talent management process is process education. On the one hand, units need to understand how to create a validated requirement and enter the market. Additionally, units need to know how to complete market work and add necessary tags and attributes.

On the other hand, officers need to understand the difference between preference and choice. The current process appears to erode the concept of selfless service in the military. Units and officers need to understand the other assignment factors and how they influence the supportability of a market match.

In the current process, other affecting factors are not taken into account in the market and are resolved during the post-market review. Assignment managers still have a role in the talent management system because of these factors. For example, many soldiers do not understand how the Exceptional Army Family Member Program works or their role in keeping their records up to date. This requires an assignment manager to ensure that the facility can meet a family’s needs.

Possible mismatches

Since all assignments are on the market, the selection of officers and units can be a talent mismatch. This is when an agent matches a job that is above or below their current skill set. For example, a senior CWO 4 could base their decision on location and select a position designed for a junior CWO 2. The unit would benefit from a senior officer and select the officer, making a match. However, the second-order effect of this is that a junior officer must now complete a senior officer requirement.

This problem is compounded by a misalignment of the market calendar with centralized selections. Army councils select individuals for promotions, battalion or brigade command, attendance at mid-level education, and senior service colleges. However, council results are not released on a schedule that supports the Army’s talent alignment process.

Instead, assignment managers must break market matches and find alternates to meet the requirements when an individual is selected by one of these councils.

No waiting

The Army must synchronize selections with the Army Talent Alignment Process assignment schedule. This would force all Army selection boards to meet sooner or find a way to streamline the process and reduce processing and approval times. Officers competing in a market should not wait for a promotion, school, or command council result. Instead, board results should inform the market about who is available to move and at what rank.

Finally, the process should require agents to accept the contract assignment. If an officer chooses to compete in the market and preferential assignments, he should not be allowed to retire or be released from active duty instead of fulfilling that assignment. This change would reduce turbulence in the market, but it would require a change in Army policy.

There is a disconnect between the architects of the Army’s talent alignment process and the agency responsible for implementing it. The system ignores many human resource management requirements and treats the talent population inclusively, but selects individuals through an exclusive advisory process. The disconnect leaves officers and units wondering if the system manages talent better than the old way of managing assignments.

In today’s competitive recruiting climate, empty career progression programs can not only cost you the retention of existing employees, but can also hurt future recruitment if the company’s reputation is made of false promises.

Companies often embrace their support for internal mobility when it comes to the career development of existing employees. However, the reality for many employees is that words are empty promises when it comes to trying to change careers.

Several factors could influence reluctance towards internal career movement, including reluctance to take up a position with an existing employee and then have to fill their current position, or the need to upgrade or retrain the skills of the employee if they have not worked directly in the type of role in which they wish to evolve.

Talent management and skills acquisition go hand in hand. When job descriptions list vague, overarching duties and responsibilities but don’t detail the specific skills needed to be successful in a role, it puts internal candidates and hiring managers at a disadvantage.

If you need to hire a recruitment specialist, be sure to detail the specific skills needed, such as proficiency with an applicant tracking system in a particular type of HRIS. However, the key here is also to make hiring managers and recruiters more comfortable with transferable skill sets. If an internal candidate working in customer service consistently demonstrates comfort with technology, ability to multi-task and prioritize, and communicates well with strong interpersonal skills, but has never used a TTY directly , many hiring managers may overlook them for an internal career move. the recruiting position and seek external candidates instead.

This is where talent management plays a vital role. Collaborate with leaders and stakeholders from all functions of the organization, create an internal skills library correlated to specific jobs that gives employees clearer pathways to know what skills are needed for new roles.

Collaborating on skills and talent strategy with front-line hiring managers is a wise course of action. These managers know first-hand how and where to identify skills and talent gaps. This is a perfect opportunity to align the needs of the team and the needs of the organization.

Once you have the skills library and the designated skills for each job, you can better consolidate those skills into overarching skills and begin developing training and development opportunities to teach those skills to employees. Simulations, job shadowing and employee participation in special projects give them time to practice what they learn. Your talent management partners can document their progress. So, if a future position in this field opens up, the employee has already demonstrated proficiency in the skills required to successfully share with the hiring manager, in addition to their other transferable skills.

Often, organizations focus primarily on developing soft skills – conflict resolution, delegation, adapting communication styles – all important skills, but this can leave development programs devoid of tangible hard skills development pathways.

You can also consider different levels of skill development for each role so that employees can not only demonstrate skill acquisition, but they can also demonstrate advanced skill acquisition. Gamification can be a fun way to engage employees and create the desire to keep progressing with developing new skills and unlocking “new levels” of success.

In the previous example of a customer service representative wanting to move into a recruiting role, let’s examine whether the talent management group had a clear career path to help that employee learn, and then demonstrate to the hiring manager how he is now proficient in creating job descriptions, posting vacancies and reviewing candidate data in the ATS, identifying compliance issues with interview questions, and writing offer letters to send to the best candidate through the ‘ATS at the selection stage.

Even if the Customer Service Representative has never recruited and performed these tasks as an HR professional, they can now demonstrate that they have tangible skills relevant to the role they want, in addition to their other transferable skills. Badges can be a convenient and engaging way for employees to quickly and easily demonstrate different skill levels to an internal hiring manager.

Some employees may never pursue internal mobility because they feel the process is not designed to help them learn new skills to help them demonstrate their abilities to succeed in a new position. If they are expected to already have the skills for a new role in previous positions or in a similar role currently, but the organization does not provide specific training to enable the role change, this may lead to frustration, lack of commitment, low morale and possibly turnover.

It is not enough to say that your organization supports the growth and internal movement of existing employees if the actions do not confirm it. If your organization’s idea of ​​supporting transferable skill sets and skill growth for career progression really only means highlighting vacancies for internal candidates and encouraging employees to share their interest in new roles s If they already have previous experience in this field, without providing tangible pathways for candidates to develop skills or consider the value of transferable skills, your employees will put their time and talents where they feel respected, invested and valued.

As part of today’s talent management, this is another great opportunity to partner with hiring and frontline managers. The manager’s role is to contribute to the future performance of employees, including preparing employees for internal roles and growth. By integrating orientation, coaching, and mentoring, managers can retain and develop employees for maximum organizational and team effectiveness and efficiency.
