SANFORD, Fla., June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Finding and keeping top talent has not been a top priority for many senior executives - until now. The shrinking talent pool has forced business leaders to find ways to attract and retain star performers.
According to a study by SHRM, the more diverse the organization is, the higher their ROI. "It's not enough to find top talent...it has to be kept and leveraged... this means creating an organizational culture of inclusion," states Linda Stokes, President & CEO of PRISM International, Inc.
69% of employees are looking for another job, according to a CareerBuilder study. A recent Forbes article revealed:
- 30% believe they will be working elsewhere within 12 months
- 40% don't respect their manager
- 50% cite values disconnect with organization
- 60% cite gap between career goals and company plans
- 70% feel underappreciated
Smart organizations create a culture of inclusion that incorporates strategies for valuing, engaging and challenging their talent. When employees' values and goals are aligned with those of the organization, they are engaged and more productive.
Stokes explains that PRISM has developed talent management training that increases hiring and mentoring skills, provides leadership with next step skills, and provides empowerment to employee groups.
