Picture the work day of top athletes. Coaches work with them to improve very specific skills. Psychologists help with the mental aspects of top performance. In fact, a whole team of specialists works to help the athlete succeed. When athletes have even the ordinary success that comes daily, their colleagues celebrate and applaud. Regardless of whether things are going well or poorly, whether in a team environment or individual sport, the group around the athlete sits down on a daily basis to discuss what is working and what is not. This focus on collaboration, coaching, enhancing performance and recognizing success starts even before the athlete is signed. Top performers are wooed, shown around at length and introduced to everyone all while the management team seeks to discover what is important to the athlete. Even family members participate. This is talent management.
Why do sports managers and coaches go to all this trouble? The answer is simple — because it works; and it can work for your organization too. Just something as simple as a strong onboarding process for new employees has been shown to reduce first year turnover by as much as 69 percent. Talent management can can help improve performance, lower turnover, increase organization-wide morale and engagement leading to greater profits and success.
