Talent Management Employee Life Cycle

Talent Management Process is designed to achieve Organizational Effectiveness by bringing the best out of every individual contributor on every level for optimal performance.

The success of your organization’s Talent Management Process will depend upon how well all Leaders effectively manage and develop their employees and drive the organization’s culture.

This calibration process begins at the Talent Aquisition phase through Succession Planning at every level of the organization. 



At a Mile High Glance

Succession: If our people reach their full potential as individual contributors, then we will reach our full potential as an organization.

Leadership Accountability: All Leaders (managers and supervisors directly responsible for others), are accountable for managing individual development and performance as well as team performance as part of the TMP. This accountability is a performance metric for all Leaders who are directly responsible for others

Individual Accountability:  Each employee is responsible for updating and completing their Performance/Goal/Competencies form to reflect the current year results and accomplishments. In addition, employees should propose Performance Goals and work with their managers to mutually agree upon four to five SMART goals each year.

Core Values and Competencies: Organizational adopted core values and competencies apply to ALL employees. Every individual contributor is expected to lead with their knowledge, skills, ideas, and exemplified behavior and positive attitude. Everyone will be evaluated on their results and how the results are achieved in alignment with core values and competencies exhibited.

Development Planning: Discussions will take place after each performance review for employee development planning. These discussions also act as the preparation step before the succession planning discussions. This planning is for both short-term and long-term career goals and objectives.
