The Future of Talent Management: Key Findings Part 10

August 16th, 2012 by Sarah Green Leave a reply »

Organisations encourage individuals to play to their strengths.

Here is the next part of this series of blogs summarising our 2012 findings into the Future of Talent Management.

Organisations are moving more towards a strengths based approach to Talent Management. Indeed, 73% of the Leaders said their talent model explicitly includes strengths based assessments and workings of positive psychology and 84% said their organisation encourages people to play to their strengths. 72% also said Leaders within the business are encouraged to identify their signature strengths.

Whilst the majority of the agreements came from Leaders in Talent (for example, 80% of
Talent, 73% of HR and 67% of Business Leaders said that the TM strategy includes strengths or a positive psychology approach) the overall theme in terms of the relevance and application of a strengths based approach in TM is strong. The importance of a strengths based approach to TM is also supported and recognised by Lewis (2011).

Look out next week for Part 11: Organisations encourage their Leaders to demonstrate resilience when facing challenge and adversity.
