Talent Optimization

Most companies find it difficult to assemble high-performing teams and to manage employees in a way that pushes everyone to the top of their game. They create a business strategy and monitor their business results. But they often don’t do the key “people work” in between and therefore fail to reach their desired goals.

Talent optimization is a four-part discipline. Predictio can help you use this discipline to align your business strategy with your people strategy for optimal business results.

Talent Optimization

Diagnose

Uncover the root of your business problems by measuring and analyzing your people data, then prescribe remedies as needed. Diagnose is the first part of talent optimization, but it’s something companies need to do on an ongoing basis.

Recommended strategic activities

In order to uncover the root cause of your business or team problems, you need to do the following strategic activities:

  •  Identify potential and opportunities
  •  Measure what matters (engagement surveys, PI, 360 etc.)
  •  Analyze the evidence
  •  Prescribe improvement actions

These activities repeat in a loop. By completing them, you will unearth insight that will lead you to make changes to the way you design, hire and inspire within your company.

Design

Beat the competition by designing your organization, leadership, culture, and team dynamics intentionally and strategically. Design is the second part of talent optimization, and this is where you’ll create and evolve your people strategy.

Recommended strategic activities

In this step you will complete the following strategic activities:

  • Select your organization’s structure
  • Evaluate your leadership team fit
  • Understand senior team dynamics
  • Establish your culture

When doing these 4 activities intentionally and strategically – supported by data, you will be in a much better position to shift your company to a higher level.

Hire

Use people data insights to build a workforce of top performers, while paying special attention to group dynamics. Hire is the third part of talent optimization, and this is where you’ll use talent optimization insights based on people data to hire and build high-performing teams.

Recommended strategic activities

In this step you will complete the following tactical activities:

  • Define and communicate job requirements
  • Equip your leaders to land top talents
  • Predict new team dynamics
  • Determine candidate culture fit

When you nail hiring, things starts happening! People feel energized by their jobs and their teams. Performance and engagement increases. You delight your clients and boost your brand reputation. And with time you attract other top performers.

Inspire

Give your employees the people data insights they need to manage themselves and their workplace relationships. Inspire is the fourth part of talent optimization and covers employee-oriented activities like career pathing and measuring team performance over time.

Recommended strategic activities

In this step the following tactical activities should be completed:

  • Create new jobs and career paths
  • Develop your leaders and HR to hire right person in right job
  • Predict, create and understand high-performing teams
  • Reinforce your culture

The most successful companies know that their leaders need to be self-aware and understand the power of inspiring their employees.
