Recent studies released by Gallop, AON/Hewitt and Deloitte all point to employee engagement and talent retention as top concerns for most organizations.
Raising employee engagement and retention levels must become a priority since they directly impact the bottom line.
However, many organizations are slow to take action.
It is essential that every organization implement an effective talent management strategy that includes goal alignment.
Overall, company success can only be assured when key employee’s roles are aligned with corporate goals.
Goal alignment not only clarifies job roles for individual employees, but also improves engagement and overall performance and satisfaction.
Top Talent, particularly Millennials who make up the majority of the workforce today, want to know the specific purpose and objective of their role and how they contribute to the success of the organization.
Otherwise, they will disengage and leave, or worse, remain disgruntled underperformers spreading ill-will and discontent.
