What is Smart Talent?
During Smart Talent consulting, Impact Washington will introduce a systems approach to improving your company culture and transforming your manufacturing business into a place that consistently attracts top talent.
Are you having trouble finding employees? Do the employees you hire never quite seem to be “good” enough? Or are you experiencing high turnover, suffering from an ineffective training program, or having a difficult time leveling up employees into higher level positions?
We know that many companies in Washington’s growing manufacturing sector face these challenges. Whether it’s an issue with recruiting, training, or retention, gaps in your talent development program can leave your company at a disadvantage that smart business strategy or a superior product alone can’t solve.
Our Smart Talent consulting program offers a systems approach to addressing these issues. We help you add structure, strategy and proven tactics to every step of your talent development process, from recruiting and hiring to onboarding and on job training and extending all the way to the creation of career ladders and succession plans as part of employees’ development.
