To attract, select, retain and optimize the best employees in today's work environment, employers must take a broader approach to Talent Management. Two critical areas must be addressed:

1. A company needs certain skills, competencies, and individuals who can work effectively in their culture. However, not every person with the needed skills will be an effective worker in your particular culture.

2. Employees are not given the same level of job security in today's world of work and most realize they have choices. The work environment, the quality of management and supervision, having the opportunity to contribute to organizational success and the ability to increase their own professional value are essential to most workers. If an individual does not find value - beyond the paycheck - they will often leave. Or worse, they become resigned, cynical and disengaged from their work - and STAY.

Career Architect Consulting Services provides powerful assessment tools and delivers coaching expertise to your workforce and training and support to your managers, to achieve the greatest organizational value: a motivated workforce understood and lead by effective managers. The synergies created not only drive the goals of the business, but also retain the talent necessary for continual business growth. Providing a work environment where people want and choose to work is smart business.

    Supervisor & Manager Training

    Managers and supervisors are usually tasked with hiring, developing and retaining their staff. Unfortunately most supervisors have never had formal training nor have they personally experienced having career discussions with their own managers. As a result, they are unaware of how to effectively conduct these meetings. It is essential that supervisors understand and support the career development process for it to have the strategic impact that is possible.

    Sample training topics:
    • Interviewing & Selection
    • Effective Supervision
    • Mentoring
    • Staff Career Discussions
    • Retention of Good Employees
    • Modeling Leadership
