Today, many organizations are choosing to use the same method for talent selection and talent development. We found that even if this method does not prove to produce the best results, the organization continues to utilize the same techniques.
Most of the time the organization develops a job match pattern for a particular role. A candidate for employment or promotion is assessed against this predictive benchmark, and the organization decides whether or not he has what it takes to excel in this role.
On the surface, this route appears fairly simple however there are other benchmarks we suggest you take into consideration.
- Does the candidate have the same thinking style, behavioral traits and occupational interest as our best performers in the role?
- Of all the talents, which particular talents does this particular person process? How will these talents assist the candidate in the role?
We suggest you take a look at your Top Performers and try to benchmark Job Fit, Based On Top Performers as the criteria. The ProfileXT is a tool that reliably assesses internal and external candidates against a predictive job benchmark based upon your top performers. Our clients have utilized ProfileXT in the past and received tremendous results.
Development for a current employee is handled a bit diferently. Development is something that a person does for him/herself. The employee must enter into it with an open mind and a willing spirit, confident that the only things the organization is trying to do is to help them to be as successful as possible.
When it comes to development, use different instruments. The selection instrument is the organization’s tool designed to select certain people to invest in and to reject others. The development instrument is the person’s tool, designed to reveal the best of the person and help him put his best to work. If you use the same instrument to select and develop, you will wind up with neither well done.
If you are looking for a great tool to help with your employee development, Checkpoint 360 Competency Assessment is an exemplary tool for identifying and quantifying talents.
Organizations with high retention (and low turnover) typically have strong corporate cultures and leadership development that can act as key differentiators in the marketplace. Hiring new employees that aren’t suited for their roles can lead to poor productivity and increased turover rate.
