Local business leaders are struggling to identify the talent they need for future success. Wendy Montague discusses the findings from the latest Hay Group research into this critical issue, providing unique insights into how business and HR leaders can tackle this challenge with a whole new approach to talent.

Hay Group’s State of Talent and Assessment research combines input from more than 200 Australian and New Zealand companies and shows that business leaders believe that their approach to talent management will not deliver the talent they need to be successful in the future. They are unsure about the critical attributes employees need to succeed in the long term and don’t think their current assessment processes help them uncover future potential.

The findings indicate that local organisations still have a lot to do to optimise their talent strategy and processes to deliver the talent they need now and in the future:

  • Local companies are worried about their ability to find and retain talented employees.
  • Many organisations have processes in place to help them make better talent decisions, but HR and business leaders alike are questioning their efficiency.
  • Most businesses admit they have little idea of what skills and behaviours they’ll need in the future.

The research provides unique insights to transform your approach to assessment and recommendations to help you build more effective talent and assessment strategies.
