Career Opportunities and Learning: Key Drivers for Talent Retention

Vlad notes a discernible shift in employee expectations, emphasizing the importance of career growth and continuous learning. “From our close collaboration with diverse organizations across various industries and recent studies, we have observed a change in employee desires and expectations. Career and learning opportunities contribute decisively to talent retention, a trend particularly pronounced among younger generations,” he explains.

They receive training suggestions and project opportunities for development, with this transparency being crucial for motivation and retention,” adds Vlad.

Bridging the Skills-Responsibilities Gap

Addressing performance and engagement, Vlad highlights the critical role of aligning skills with job responsibilities. “There are several ways to evaluate employee performance and engagement in achieving objectives, and an HR software like Nestor can certainly assist in this endeavor. The first step involves setting clear performance indicators and objectives. This way, every employee knows what is expected regarding individual performance, how they can contribute to organizational goals, and how their work impacts these objectives.”

Vlad stresses the importance of evaluating individual performance in relation to existing skills and competencies. “Assessing skills and aligning them with job-specific requirements is even more crucial in today’s dynamic environment, where the skills needed to perform in a particular role are continually evolving due to new technologies and emerging jobs,” he states.

Performance evaluations serve as a starting point for understanding strengths and identifying areas where employees need training to continue developing, perform at higher levels, and remain motivated.
