“If a person is not performing as expected, it is probably because he or she has been miscast for the job”. William Edwards Deming

Job stress from being miscast or mismanaged is a major cause of employee turnover. The cost of losing a new employee after a few months is expensive, but the cost of losing a key employee who has been with you for a long time can be astronomical. Even if a person has the knowledge and skills to perform their work, if they don’t like what they do (miscast) or who they work with (mismanaged) , it’s only a matter of time before they become frustrated and disengaged and start looking for another job.

The key to successful talent management and personal growth is knowledge of each person’s unique behaviors and motivators. With this knowledge, people can be effectively coached by maximizing their strengths to achieve the organization’s goal, maximize productivity, increase morale .   Our Employee Development report is a valuable resource for managing, motivating and retaining all of your employees.
