Identifying and Growing Talent Through Development Centers
With increasing competition for staff, organizations, more than ever before, need to identify and hold on to their talented people. This means it is imperative that capable people are constantly challenged to improve their performance levels and are supported along their journey of self-development. The role of development centers is becoming an increasingly important component within an organization’s talent management strategy. So how can organizations maintain a steady pipeline of talented people within an extremely competitive work environment?

In simple terms, however, development centers provide an opportunity for participants to benefit from impartial and objective feedback on the behavioral competencies they need at work, leading to a practically focused development action plan.
