Talented employees are the engines that drive all businesses, so proper management is key. We’ve put together a list of the top 11 talent management programs available for you to use to develop quality employees. These programs will tell you everything you need to know on all aspects of talent management from recruiting and training to retaining your best employees.
The first human resource management program on our list is one from EdApp called Performance Management. You more than anyone should understand the detrimental effects of compensating employees who can’t, or simply refuse to pull their weight. Have you heard the saying, each horse should be able to carry its feed? Make sure all your employees are carrying their feed and not burdening others with excess work. This course goes through ways to help you to establish roles clearly, and develop clear lines of effective feedback processing and it will also teach you how to maintain objectivity while managing underperforming employees.
Some of us may not consider mentoring as a way to manage the talent we hire, but this should not be the case. When we mentor, we instill a sense of purpose in our employees and this is beneficial in many ways. Mentored employees are more loyal and will work harder to achieve the goals set for them. Mentoring is a training and development course that is offered on the EdApp LMS. Mentorship plays a huge role in a person’s career development, so if you can offer a solid mentorship program to your employees, you can effectively manage the talent on your team to be more productive in both the short and long run.
