More Transparency Needed For Corporate Talent Pools?

In a survey of 518 directors, managers, and employees based in Great Britain, 71% of respondents said their organization should be more open about which employees are in their company’s talent pool.

Nearly three-quarters (73%) of respondents said it is apparent that some individuals get treated differently in terms of career development and progression opportunities within their organization.

More than half (54%) of all workers surveyed said that their organization doesn’t recognize their full potential, and even 38% of those who are in a talent pool said their full potential is not recognized. More than a third (36%) 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, the majority (81%) said this motivates them to perform their job better. Meanwhile, around one-third (35%) 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 personaldevelopment
strategies so that everybody feels supported and valued, regardless of whether they are in a talent pool or not.
