Thanksgiving dinner is always a delicious meal. There’s the turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes and green bean casserole. Often times, several people bring a variety of dishes so no one person is left with the task of preparing the entire feast. How do you decide who brings what though?

You want to make sure the meal tastes good so more often than not, it’s probably best to let each person decide what they want to make. Chances are they will fix something they are good at making. No one wants Sally to make the green bean casserole if she makes the best turkey and stuffing. It’s important to use a person’s talents where they are most needed.

Just like with Thanksgiving dinner, you also want to make sure your employees’ talents are used in the capacity that benefits the company most. Talent management is important to all companies. With technology constantly changing and advancing, employers should ensure that their workforce talents are used in the most lucrative way and realize that talents are versatile and can be valuable to a company in more ways than one.

Once an employer understands their employees and their knowledge, skills, and competencies, then the organization can focus on the productivity of their workforce and use their talents for the profitability of the company.
