A capable workforce is one where people and teams are able to effectively contribute to the ongoing performance and success of your business. How you undertake recruitment is a very important part of attracting talent in the first place, but how you then harness and leverage that talent is what really makes the difference.
In high performing organisations, employees are given the opportunity to maximise their talent and potential through projects and work tasks that are both professionally challenging and rewarding. They are supported to build and demonstrate the skills that the organisation needs to maximise its performance including through training, mentoring and coaching. A capable organisation has employees who know what is expected of them and are motivated and inspired by their organisation’s vision. They have a culture which has high expectations of its people combined with high support and strong leadership. There is a clear relationship between what people do and how it is making a difference.
Our most successful client organisations include capability in their strategic agenda. They identify the knowledge and skills needed to maximise their organisation’s performance and outcomes in different areas of their business. They then actively seek to match the knowledge skills and attitudes of their people to their outcomes. When capability is built purposefully to support both an organisation’s culture and its deliverables, it offers powerful rewards to the organisation and its employees alike.
