December 26, 2013 by Wally Bock

Every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover talent development to find the very best talent development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to pieces retention strategy, engaging high performers, 25 smart recruiting topics, and a new era in talent development and learning.

From TLNT: Employee Retention Doesn’t Just Happen: Five Keys to a Clear Strategy

“What employee retention strategies do you use to engage and retain employees? Research from the Bureau of Labor Statistics bureau show that the average American will hold around 11.3 jobs during their working years. The average number of jobs held is actually going up — especially with Millennials. Eleven (11) may seem like a really high number, however that depends on various factors, including the work you do, and what generation you are from.”

From TLNT: 3 Tips on How to Best Engage a High Performer

“While it’s true that high performers are typically more upbeat than other employees, they too need a deep, purposeful connection with the organization to be engaged in their work just like any other person.”

From Dr. John Sullivan: 25 Smart Recruiting Topics For Bold and Innovative Recruiting Leaders

“If you want to be among the elite, you should select a handful for implementation. However, even if you are currently overwhelmed by your current agenda, you might still find them to be interesting reading.”

From AccountingWEB: A New Era in Talent Development and Learning

“This transition doesn’t require a great deal of monetary investment or even tech savviness, but more of a mind-set change to embrace new ways of taking in information, as opposed to listening to the ‘sage on the stage’ for four or even eight hours at a live CPE event.”
