In the high-stakes game of talent management, HR leaders are often tasked with making pivotal decisions that can shape the future of an organisation.
What if, however, they are choosing the wrong people?
The misallocation of investment in talent can be a costly misstep, one that many HR departments, unfortunately, find themselves making. Unintentionally focussing on underperformers while the true positive leaders remain hidden deep within the organisation..
The crux of the issue lies in the traditional talent identification processes.
These systems can be inherently flawed, favouring those who are outspoken or have a more visible presence in the company, rather than those who consistently add value through positive leadership.
In a study by the Corporate Executive Board, it was revealed that nearly one-quarter of new hires are considered ‘mis-hires’ by the end of their first year, reflecting the pitfalls of conventional evaluation methods (CEB Global, 2014).
Traditional performance metrics and recognition systems can often overlook the silent achievers, the ones who lead with empathy, resilience, and a forward-thinking mindset. These leaders are the ones fostering team cohesion, nurturing growth, and inspiring innovation without necessarily standing in the spotlight, and often without recognising themselves the positive impact they have within the company.
It’s no secret that employees who feel their work is meaningful and recognise their contribution to the company’s success are significantly more productive. Yet, the metrics that quantify such intangible assets are often underdeveloped or undervalued.
