Definition of Talent, Talent Planning and Talent Development

Talent can have two different subjects depending on the context. It can refer to a particular skillset, which an employee possesses and has a positive impact on your company, or it may be employees themselves who embody several essential skills that your company desires.

The first stage that you need to go through as a company is talent planning. Talent planning means that you look at the talents that your company possesses overall as well as the potential these talents have to achieve your future goals and business needs. This can be from the perspective of overall talents, but it should also be looked at in terms of talents possessed by individual workers. From there, your company can decide which talents are already present versus which talents you need to obtain for the future.

Talent development is the plan that follows the talent planning process. It is about developing and guiding employees who exhibit skills that contribute to the company’s success and growth, while also looking to fill the gaps of talent you feel is missing from your system. It requires time and effort because you must ensure the retention of the talent you already have, while hiring employees you hope fit the position.
