Is your organization part of the trend of increasing spend on upskilling talent for the future of work? Organizations spend about $1,075 per learner, and in the past year, spending on external training products and services increased 32.5%. But only one in four senior managers report that training is critical to business outcomes. Why? Because of the overemphasis on one-off, hard skills development. This may look like training courses or microlearning platforms, which often focus on role-specific skills and knowledge. Organizations are focusing on developing their talent for the here and now — but not for the future.
Talent-based development prepares current Employees for future business needs
In order to implement a development strategy that’s organized around future business needs and goals, you’ll need to shift your focus away from one-off, hard skills development to continuous, talents-based development. Talents are transferable across the different roles and projects that are encountered during an employee’s career journey. Plum Talent Grow is an online, talent-based professional development guide. It can be accessed by both employees and managers to inform continuous, collaborative, and future-focused learning & development.
Say goodbye to cumbersome and time-consuming 360 surveys. Plum Talent Grow can be immediately provided to employees after completing the 25-minute Plum Discovery Survey. Talent Grow is learning and development support that is completely individualized to each person, yet can be distributed across your organization, so that your talent is being developed in line with business needs.
Talent Grow leverages the results of a validated psychometric tool. But it’s not like most learning & development tools stemmed from Industrial/Organizational Psychology, which require consultants in order for employers to properly debrief and digest complicated psychological reports. Talent Grow is written in intuitive language that can be understood and actioned on by any individual in any role.
Tired of learning & development assessments that only provide a breakdown of an employee’s results, but have no instructions on how to leverage the results to create a professional development plan? Us too. Plum Talent Grow equips employers to create a development roadmap and curate upskilling content, enabling everyone’s success by helping your people stay on target with career goals.
Plum Talent Grow leverages data that can be used for other talent management needs. It all stems from the Plum Discovery Survey, which can be used as a pre-employment assessment, a high-potential (HiPo) selection tool, a career pathing aid, and more. Not to mention all this data can be surfaced in your Human Capital Management (HCM) platform. Can your 360 surveys, DISC assessments, or other pre-employment assessments do that?
