Manage episode 337317992 series 3361889
“If you are building a talent strategy that’s based on a sample you saw online or a great book you read, you will not match what your business needs and so I think whenever I’m doing any kind of talent strategy or when I was consulting I was always asking people “what’re your business goals” and it was shocking to me where I would look then at the talent strategy and I couldn’t see the business connect. I couldn’t see the EVP (the employee value proposition) connect. And I’m like that’s why you’re struggling, because your programs probably aren’t resonating with people and you’re spending money where you shouldn’t be spending money.”
Have you ever asked yourself “what would have to be true for my company to get to 10 million, 25 million, 50 million, or even 100 million”?
The people on your team are a huge factor.
