Talent Development with Assessments: Retain and Engage Your Workforce

Do you know how to unlock the potential of your employees? Are you creating an engaging employee experience? How do you retain your top-performing employees?

The Challenge of Retaining your Workforce

As the demographics of the workforce change and markets shift, so do employees’ expectations of the world of work. People leaders and the entire HR function must do all they can, to support employees in their career. This creates a better employee experience and positive Employee Value Proposition (EVP).

This is where talent development assessments step in. These are designed to help employees and organizations identify development opportunities. Talent development assessments provide employees with more support and guidance, helping them to fulfil their potential within your organization.

Promote Internal Talent Mobility with Aon’s Pathfinder

Why let your top performers leave for the competition? By offering your most valuable employees a wide selection of functions to explore, they can identify their own career path at your company. Plus, you will get a deeper understanding of your talent pool, its gaps and untapped potential.

How to Identify Future People Managers?

A key step in many careers is taking on management responsibilities. Therefore, organizations need to prepare colleagues for leadership. At the same time, comprehensive strategies are required to define what the workforce and management need to look like to ensure future success.

  • Find Tomorrow’s Leaders

    Understanding what it takes to be a great leader has always been a challenge and it is getting even harder in today’s increasingly complex world. The leaders of tomorrow need to have traditional leadership behaviors — plus embrace the opportunities of change.

    Aon’s talent assessment solutions provide you with a way to measure your team’s ability to learn, adapt to changes and challenges, and seek out new skills and experiences at work.

How to Prepare Employees for Senior Leadership?

Talent assessment plays an important role in evaluating leadership potential. To meet today’s workforce challenges, organizations need to evolve their talent development strategy to meet new leadership requirements and new skills.
