If you’ve ever had a business of your own, you’ll know the importance of hiring the right people! With the high unemployment rate and tough economic conditions currently prevailing in South Africa, most companies are inundated with CVs from hundreds, if not thousands, of desperate applicants looking for an opportunity.

Yes, you might be spoiled for choice, but are you really assured of getting Mr or Mrs Right? At most, you have a 50/50 chance of getting it right. With these tough trading conditions, can you really afford to take that chance?

Wouldn’t it be easier to just look within? Often disregarded by large corporates as a viable option, promoting internally is a great way to grow and reinforce your business from economic uncertainty.

Therefore, in order to achieve a big enough talent pool to pick and choose from, you need to make talent nurturing one of the main pillars of your business philosophy.

Not only does it allow you to keep and upskill your employees, but it also places you in a better position to react to future needs and demands. In a nutshell, it gives you peace of mind as a business owner.

According to Sylvia Baldock, a personal presence and team dynamics specialist, there are a few ways in which you can successfully nurture your talent pool:
• Provide regular training to aid individual growth
• Make employees feel valued
• Gives exceptionally skilled employees more opportunities/responsibility
• Hold regular reviews and meetings
• Be willing to accept change and take on suggestions
