Five Principles of Effective Talent Management

How are best-in-class organizations crafting and executing a cohesive talent management strategy?

Leaders across industries have identified commercial talent as a key enabler (or disruptor) for achieving profitable growth in 2023. Alexander Group recently surveyed 250+ commercial leaders across industries to gain their insights on the best practices for developing a talent management strategy that truly brings a competitive advantage.

Alexander Group’s research report, Five Principles of Effective Talent Management, is now available. Highlights include:

  • Companies that invest in employee engagement programs achieve higher customer experience ratings.
  • Companies that are vocal about career advancement opportunities fill open sales positions two weeks faster and save two months on training new hires to full productivity.
  • Companies that measure employee skills and competencies on a quarterly basis realize a ~20% reduction in employee attrition due to insufficient training.
  • Compensation is the #1 reason candidates accept hiring offers and is also the top reason employees resign; the dollar amount, however, is not the only component that matters.
  • Successful companies measure employee performance through a variety of non-quota-based metrics.
