Increase Employee Engagement Through Talent Mobility

talent mobilityOne of the best ways to increase employee engagement is by providing opportunities to learn and grow. This is especially true for our youngest and fastest growing group of employees (the Millenial Generation) who are more likely to change jobs when they begin to get bored. With the continued pressure to do more with less and the increasing need to nimbly adapt to changing business conditions, it is essential for companies to create a mobile talent pool in which you can tap for advancement.

Here are some steps your organization can take to create a mobile talent pool:

  1. Identify a group of employees who are flexible, adaptable and easily integrate new information.
  2. Pinpoint where you are most likely to have the need for cross training.
  3. Use an assessment tool to benchmark your needs and determine which employees can best fill these needs.
  4. Ensure your managers are trained to have regular career development discussions with their employees.
  5. Identify which employees will excel at mentoring your mobile talent pool, and put them to work as coaches.
