We are in a fast changing world and a fast changing industry. Age and nationality demographics are also changing and skills shortages and retention are hot topics. In this changing world the creation of a capability strategy is on the agenda of lots of organisations. Is it on yours? Know what it means?!
It means companies ensuring that employees develop their capability, acquire the required skills and then manage their talent so as to fulfill effectively the company business strategy – in short to ensure the organisation has the right skills in the right place at the right time to deliver the business´s goals, it´s also known as talent management. At Spinnaker we have found that in shipping the capability readiness ranges from the underdeveloped and completely unaware through to well developed and sophisticated. Here at Spinnaker and the Maritime HR Forum we are interested in sharing experiences on this.
Do you have a strategy for capability and talent management? What problems have you faced in implementing a strategy and what hurdles have you had to get over to find a workable solution? Is the issue of interest in your organisation at all? Are you interested in finding out what others are doing?
