• How To Be THE Employee THEY Just Can’t Live Without

    Posted by in Your Professional Image With | No Comments

    Wouldn’t it be nice to BE the employee your company just can’t live without?  Well recently I was asked to write an article for the Orange County chapter of the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD).

    When I was asked to write this piece, there were a number of facts that were sent to me.  Clearly, as the economy continues to soften more and more stories, like the one below will become common place.

    "According to a April 7, 2008 Workforce Management article, roughly half of 1,300 executives polled earlier in 2008 said that they are planning layoffs this year. Washington Mutual announced cuts of 3,150 employees. Macy’s announced cuts of 2,300 employees. CitiGroup, where I work, announced 20,000 cuts at the start of the year, and continues to add a few thousand more here, a few thousand more there…  It’s getting personal, now…

    The fact that businesses are taking a hard look at their budgets, challenging what they deem to be unnecessary costs, is not new. However, there’s an interesting twist to this economic slowdown that I’ve not experienced before — an increased focus on talent management to ensure that when the economy recovers, the business is well-couched to recover right along with it.

    While there is a lot of discussion about aligning training to business needs, I’d like a discussion about how an individual works to stand out among those who seek to retain the top talent within their organization."

    I hope you enjoy the article.

    Best,
