How Training Can Improve Your Talent Management Strategy

Posted by Area9 on May 28, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Human Resources builds its team by bringing talented workers into the company. This is great, but to make a real lasting business impact the department needs a talent management strategy; it needs to hire highly engaged, high-performing employees all the time. Hiring employees who you know will be all that seems like it could be a difficult problem, but is it, really?

Good Training Equals Employee Success

If learning and development training is done correctly, you don’t have to worry about an employee’s level of proficiency. If your training program works as it should, then you should be able to correct inadequacies, and no learner will be left behind.

Once you have a capable human resources team that you feel proud of, who gain skills and knowledge so well that competency is no longer an issue, all you have to be concerned about is how to retain such efficient workers and convince them not to go elsewhere. It turns out good corporate training can do that too.

Change Your Talent Management Strategy - Retain Competent Workers by Building Confidence


Workers who don’t feel confident that they are doing a good job are unlikely to stay with your company. Even if they are completely competent, but don’t feel they are, they may still be inclined to leave. But how do you improve employee confidence?

Adaptive Learning can prove to an employee that they are more competent than they know; it does this by asking questions about how confident the learner is with multiple choice answers. Adaptive Learning will show the learner what they know, what they are confident they know, and what subjects they need to improve on.

By knowing exactly where they stand in terms of job performance and job knowledge, Adaptive Learning increases learner confidence and comprehension. When a human resources team gets detailed analytics proving that they have been well trained, their confidence will grow.

And if employee confidence grows enough, and they feel useful in their job, or confident that the company’s training program will help them get up to speed if they fall behind, they will be much less likely to leave in search of greener pastures.

If the training is good, the worker will also feel the company is investing in them. They’re more likely to feel loyalty toward the company that puts such a strong belief in their talents and education. There’s no better talent management strategy than that.

Adaptive Learning is the key to ensuring that excellent talent stays with your company for years to come.
