Retaining top talent is the biggest concern of business and HR leaders in 2020, according to Brandon Hall Group research. Why? Because most companies have failed to invest in skills and talent and it has steamrolled out of control:
- Companies don’t know what skills they need now and tomorrow or how to develop them.
- Employees don’t know the skills they should learn or career paths they can pursue. So they leave.
- And often, the wrong people are hired in the first place because employers didn’t really understand the skills they were recruiting for.
The solution is to reinvent your approach to understanding and developing the workforce capabilities you need. Creating a skills orientation gives employees a path to pursue even during the uncertainty of COVID-19.
