Talent shaping

Talent shaping, acquisition or hiring – what’s the difference?

In regional areas, it is often difficult to find the right people with the right skills who want to stay for the long-term in a regional town and in business like yours.

Talent shaping is a strategy that acknowledges your business goals while identifying the specialised skills you need to achieve your business success. Roles that are difficult to fill in regional areas include those that require people with appropriate leadership and management skills, specialised trades and professional roles in health and education, to name just a few job functions and professions.

Outsourcing your mentoring allows your people to improve their –

  • Knowledge of what is required to succeed in your business
  • Connectedness to your business and culture
  • Workplace performance

Mentoring is a two-way relationship focused on the development of skills for work.

New employees benefit from mentoring as it assists them to develop knowledge and skills while enabling them to overcome the difficulties of starting a new job.

Given that many organisations have difficulty sourcing and retaining talented staff, mentoring assists in overcoming these initial workplace or community barriers so they are more engaged with their role.

Your organisation needs assistance with mentoring employees because –

  • 80% of employees who are posted to regional locations do not stay for the long haul
  • 71% of employees are unengaged at work
  • 30% of all professionals are actively searching for another job
  • 98% of millennials want continuous on the job training
  • 80% of employees desire regular feedback
