Talent Development

A method of creating ideal employees that are aligned with your business strategy.

A method of creating ideal employees that are aligned with your business strategy.

The second pillar of strategic talent management is talent development. It is a method of creating an organisation’s ideal employee, assisting employees in achieving their maximum potential, and aligning people performance to the business strategy. Organisations also save on turnover costs by avoiding costs related to hiring and re-training, productivity loss and drop in co-workers morale. 

Talent development programmes support succession planning, ensure career development for employees, and increase employee engagement and retention rates. Organisations also need to ensure they continuously work at closing skills gaps, thus creating a workforce capable of moving the organisation forward in delivering the organisation’s business strategy.

Our portfolio of talent development interventions and talent development programmes spans from highly customised programmes, to National Commission for Further and Higher Education accredited courses.

All our development programmes are based on our Learning is R.E.A.L philosophy which allows us to deliver courses that are reflective, experiential, applied, and support long-term and ongoing development. In view of this, we utilise a blend of approaches organised in a systematic manner. The approaches include;

  • Simulation-based development (support insight and motivation, and contribute towards skill development and real-world practice);
  • Practice- based activities (includes large amounts of practice time, whereby the participants will ‘learn by doing’);
  • Action learning (supports insight, motivation, skill development, real-world practice and accountability).
