The right path envolves in movement – gain corporate success with the right talents

In an increasingly fast-moving world, companies have to contend with various external changes. Social change, technological innovations and economic fluctuations affect employers and employees alike and have consequences for both parties. But the world of work is also shaped by entrepreneurial changes inside the corporations.

[Translate to English:] talent management

In the future only companies that take care of their in-house talents will be successful on the market. The decisive factor here is how they recruit their internal junior staff, whether they can motivate and encourage them and whether the companies manage to retain excellent people. The demographic forecasts are clear and companies' long-term experience with the lack of qualified specialists is too long-lasting. In principle, the need for qualified talent management is beyond doubt.

The knowledge is here... you just need to learn from it!

Based on these facts, the question comes up, what does qualified talent management actually inherent? How is talent management organized today and is really that meaningful and effective for long lasting success? Numerous companies pursue two central goals with talent management:

  • qualified internal replacement of key positions should be achieved and
  • a sustainable loyalty of highly qualified employees to the company should be created.

  • how a future-oriented competency model should be designed and where it can be used sensibly and helpfully?
  • how talent can be strategically identified in a proper way?
