While we accept that most of today’s businesses are competency driven and that people are our biggest assets, historically, organizations have focused more on proactively improving their delivery processes and their investments in technology.
In fact, the current global talent shortfalls and high attrition rates are only a tip of the iceberg. At the business level, there are imperatives like improving productivity, moving-up the value chain, enhancing competitiveness and getting closer to the customers. At the organization level, issues like managing a multi-cultural and multi-geography workforce, managing rapid growth and creating “cool” work cultures continue to take a large mind – share of business leaders and HR professionals. All this, while today’s professional is trying to get multi-skilled and chart a clear career path for himself.
So, it’s not good enough to win the “talent wars”. It’s also not enough to try solutions (like Business Process Reengineering, Employee Stock Options, Assessment Centers and 360-degree appraisals) in a piece-meal manner. Instead, the need of the hour is to take a holistic view of the organization’s business, culture, technology and talent needs and develop comprehensive competency development programs to attract, retain and grow the talent. The imperative is to adapt solutions based on an integrated and proactive approach towards developing and engaging talent, growing the business and delighting the customers.
