Successful managers of modern companies understand that consistent and innovative management of a company team is necessary to ensure successful performance in a constantly changing market. After all, the business world does not stand still: it is constantly evolving in response to rapid developments in technology, as well as in people’s thinking and needs. Unfortunately, not every manager can devote enough time and effort to devise and implement a proper human resources strategy, so talent management consulting and training become a valuable and efficient way to save a lot of resources that can be directed to other areas of the company’s business. For these reasons, efficient personnel management is important for both small and large companies.

What is Talent Management?

Talent management involves selecting, recruiting and organizing staff to get the most value for your company or organization. Effective recruitment ensures the smooth running of the company, helps to achieve the desired results in the best possible short time, avoids additional costs for employee training, and wastes time searching for new employees.

Talent management is a very broad area of activity for any employer. It covers both the management of employment contracts, the company’s recruitment plans, and the assessment and selection of new recruitment needs. At the same time, it includes evaluating the efficiency of existing employees, guiding them in the right direction for your business, employee learning and training, skill development, setting salaries, and, of course, effective internal communication and feedback mechanisms.

A talent management system must have the following elements:

  • Clearly defined goals for the company or organization;
  • Suitable employees willing and able to achieve these goals together;
  • The norms and values that exist in your company or organization that have a significant impact on employee behavior and encourages or hinders them from seeking your business goals;
  • Comprehensive system of employee training, development, and motivation
  • An effective internal communication system that provides feedback between managers and the rest of the staff.

Personnel management requires strategic thinking and constant innovation

Given the many different dimensions of human resources management, it becomes clear that, in order to be effective, talent management requires a comprehensive strategic thinking. This need is further reinforced by the growing gap between the demands of the modern market players and the long-established employer beliefs and practices. Market research shows that modern candidates care about much more than salary – they pay special attention to:

  • Opportunities for development;
  • Work team and team atmosphere;
  • Company culture and meaning of activity;
  • Communicating with the company’s employees;
  • Employer brand and its individual components (employer brand value attributes, such as social responsibility, work-life balance, etc.).

In order to meet such a wide variety of candidate and employee expectations, an integrated talent management strategy is needed, beginning with clearly-defined objectives and ending with a detailed implementation plan. As a strategic partner for your company, Amston is ready to develop a suitable value-creating strategy together with you.

Talent management strategy must also include the need for prudently selected and implemented innovations in human resources management to ensure that your company runs smooth and can continue to grow. The need for innovation is driven by the changing candidate and employee expectations. For example, today it can be seen that more and more candidates and employees expect their employer to engage in their career organization, provide innovative skills development solutions, ensure an efficient and transparent internal communication system, and establish and maintain a psychologically healthy atmosphere in the workplace. The changing aspirations of the candidates also create the need for an authentic and original employer brand (to this end, we provide our clients with an extensive package of employer branding services).
