About Talent Sustainability
What is Talent Sustainability?
Talent sustainability is an organization’s capacity to attract and sustain the talent needed to succeed in the present as well as in the future. It is the best solution to the talent shortage problem; however sustainability requires a different perspective and an innovative approach.
Employers are searching for employee engagement strategies that can help them retain their talent. Engaging employees is very important in providing job satisfaction, yet “retention” is not a realistic goal. We can’t really “retain” people because everyone is free to leave their jobs any time they want to!
We can, however, improve job satisfaction and employee commitment through a Holistic Approach—an approach centered on the whole rather than separate aspects of the human being—that involves other equally important aspects of employee sustainment, such as mental and emotional empowerment.
This is not difficult; an in-depth psychological analysis is not required to know how to attract and sustain talent. All we need to know is that “Talent” is comprised of people and that people are human beings who want to be treated as what they really are. Because We Are Simply Human Beings™. This perspective is the foundation of the talent management strategies introduced here.
