Talent management practices should be more transparent, according to a new study. In a survey of 518 directors, managers and employees, 71 percent of respondents said their organization should be more open about which employees are in their company’s talent pool.
Seventy-three percent of respondents said it is apparent that some individuals get treated differently in terms of career development and progression opportunities within their organization.
Fifty-four percent of all workers surveyed said that their organization doesn’t recognize their full potential, and even 38 percent of those who are in a talent pool said their full potential is not recognized. Thirty-six percent of all respondents said their company does not track or manage their personal or career development.
Of the 23% of respondents surveyed who are currently in a talent pool, 81 percent said this motivates them to perform their job better. Meanwhile, 35 percent of those who are not in a talent pool feel demotivated as a result, reinforcing the need for clearer communications and enterprise-wide career and personal development strategies so that everybody feels supported and valued, regardless of whether they are in a talent pool or not.
