The Institute of Directors, Ghana is advocating the need for companies to adopt a talent management strategy to identify and develop the skills and proficiencies of their employees.
According to the Institute, this was critical to achieving organisational success and enhance the performance of their employees.
Addressing graduands at the 20th Graduation and Induction ceremony of the Chartered Institute of Administrators and Management Consultants – Ghana (CIAMC), President of the Institute of Directors – Ghana, Mr Rockson Dogbegah also noted that adopting a talent management plan will strengthen administration practice and enhance organisational growth.
“The talent management plan is basically the managing of the talents. Therefore, I suggest we adopt such a plan to be able to attract, retain and develop the skills and competences of employees to enhance organisational growth. Identifying talents also requires the organisations knowing what they need in terms of skills-set and reaching out to attract those talents to achieve their corporate goals.”, he said.
He further noted that talent development also required organisations to have a workable support system for employees to be able to achieve job satisfaction.
“Often some organisations gave promises to potential employees to attract them, however, they failed to deliver when they engage them. Such a situation did not support organisational growth as it made employees loose trust in them,” he added.
Chief Executive Officer of CIAMC, Samuel Mawusi Asafo, urged the graduates to use skills acquired to be exemplary at their work places.
“We believe that when we use our knowledge and skills for personal and organisational development, it will transcend to national development.”
The 20th Graduation and Induction ceremony of the Chartered Institute of Administrators and Management Consultants – Ghana (CIAMC), was on the theme: “Talent Management in the Administration and Management Consultancy Profession.”
In all, 194 administrators and management professionals graduated and were inducted into the professional body.
