Research from Betterworks revealed that people want the management of talent to improve as businesses are being hurt by the shortcomings. The concerning aspects of organizations’ talent management are summarized in the report. There were over 1,000 managers surveyed in the industry all working in areas that had over 500 employees.
The roles that managers play in performance improvements, motivation and development of teams is not a large one. Betterworks found that the areas of talent management were all considered to be in need of improvements in the organizations. People who manage other people do not always feel they have the support they need to do their job and the performance and management of talent is suffering.
There is no longer a sense of purpose for managers. Companies with clear objects are performing 42% better than those that do not. Management feels that organizations lack purpose and the organizational alignment faces several challenges. A third of managers thought that employees clearly understood the vision and mission of companies while less than 40% thought the values were lived by the senior leaders.
Companies Lack of Alignment
Over half of the managers surveyed believed that priorities and goals were not communicated clearly enough for all team members to know what they were responsible for. The percentage was similar when it came to not clearly understanding the top priorities for companies during the following year. Managers do not feel that they are provided the proper training and people are primarily rewarded on the level of the job and the amount of time at the company.
