Training: Crucial in Talent Management​

Training: Crucial in Talent Management​

Talent Management is a current topic and presents a continuous challenge for organisations. SWAT training programs are the crucial tool to get better results from your teams.

"Talent will determine how efficient (or not) a company is"

It should be noted, however, that talent development does not only involve training or training programs. Training programs are a great way to support people in developing a specific competency, however, organizations should create learning opportunities and tools to allow them to progress in their careers in general.

The goal of talent development is to create a work atmosphere where talented people can continue to grow and learn and can be the key to attracting new talent that they need because it is a fact that skilled workers look for companies that are well known for offering development opportunities.

Therefore, it should be noted:

  • Training - a systematic approach to empowering employees' knowledge, skills and attitudes in order to improve their ability to carry out their work;
  • Talent management - a broader process aimed at preparing employees and leaders for future responsibilities.

In any case, we can conclude that training / coaching is a vital segment linking all talent management processes from recruitment to performance management, and of course leadership – since talent will potentiate leaders!

Talent and Training

Can talent be nurtured or are we all born with talent? Can we transform a mid-level employee into a high-performing employee? How can organizations discover and reinforce talents?

The truth is that talent is capable of being developed and perfected. Training programs are ideal places to sharpen talent!

Training can help employees excel at their jobs, help them realize their talent, and develop competencies for better performance. This is particularly true for employees who, for example, may have excellent leadership skills but who need to improve their technical skills or vice versa.

Training nurtures a culture of learning. Business is moving fast nowadays. As markets change and technological advances are felt, skills gaps often become more visible.

Companies that thrive are those that can be agile and adaptable – meaning companies that learn – and whose managers and training leaders understand that learning happens everywhere and goes far beyond traditional learning practices.

When Training is neglected in Talent Management strategies

Unfortunately, training does not always benefit from the priority it deserves. When a company is only focused on growth opportunities, it tends to ignore the negative impact that the absence of a talent management process will eventually produce by minimizing performance.

In other cases, managers do not have the necessary organizational performance support, which prevents them from understanding how skill gaps can limit organizational growth.

Many companies neglect training or waste money on inappropriate programs without follow-up and without measuring whether it produces a difference in business results and / or leads to a return on investment.

How to make Training effective?

Any company that wishes to practice a true talent management strategy must, imperatively, implement and have effective training practices; in such cases the delivery method, the quality of training content and the frequency with which it is carried out are priority issues.
