Talent Management FAQs

What is talent management?

Talent management seeks to attract, identify, develop, engage, retain and deploy individuals who are considered particularly valuable to an organisation. It should align with business goals and strategic objectives.

Implementing this within your business can help build a high-performance workplace, encourage a ‘learning’ organisation, add value to your employer brand, and improve diversity management.

What is a skills gap?

A skills gap is the difference between the skills needed to do a particular job and those that are available. Not addressing it can cause impacts such as;

  • A loss of productivity
  • A higher rate of staff turnover
  • Lower levels of morale
  • Lower-quality work
  • An inability to expand the business
  • A loss of revenue

How do you identify a skills gap within a business?

There are a number of steps that you must undertake, but the first is to take a closer look at employee performance in order to identify skill gaps. This is known as a Skills Gap Analysis. This involves gathering employee data in order to determine competency and performance gaps and find root causes that need addressing. How do you identify a skills gap within a business?

  • Adaptability
  • Communication
  • Creative thinking
  • Dependability
  • Work ethic
  • Teamwork
  • Positivity
  • Time management

How much time do businesses, on average, allocate to employee training?

Employees have only about 1% of their work time, that’s on average, 5 minutes a day, devoted to professional development. However, only 12% of learners say they apply the skills received from training to their jobs. 

Is business training tax deductible?

HMRC state that tax relief is allowable for training expenses only when the training is wholly for business purposes. For instance, when it’s claimed against seminars and courses that update existing business or professional knowledge, and includes training required to maintain membership of a professional body.
