Developing the right culture and behaviours
The human resources function has a crucial role to play in coaching and working with line managers to help them to better understand the range of tools at their disposal to help develop and retain talent. This can range from linking specific performance measures (which include behavioural) with larger goals to clearly defining job roles.
However, the theory is useless unless you have the right people in the right roles with a talent structure that will enable the organisation to meet its business objectives. Ensuring that the right culture and behaviours in place is key - it's not just about the functional skills.
