Guide and Best Practices

Talent mapping is the process of defining future talent needs, assessing the competency of your current staff, collecting information on prospective candidates for future recruitment and developing a strategic plan to fill the identified talent gaps.

Talent Mapping Process

  • Start by first identifying company goals or where the company wants to be in a few more years. Accordingly what staffing needs will you have to fulfill?
  • Discuss with departmental heads to understand how the current staffing situation is. What skills do you have and what skills do you lack?
  • Based on the information you have gathered, create organizational charts that show your current organizational structure, and one that shows how it would be in a year or in a few years.
  • Assess the performance of current employees to identify high-potential staff members. Here you can refer to their performance evaluations or use a SWOT analysis or a performance-potential matrix.
  • Using Creately, you can invite relevant employees or departmental heads to collaborate on the document.
  • Now, compare yourself to your biggest competitors. What skills, positions or departments do you lack? This will help you analyze their plans for the future and what you are missing.
  • Identify key players in your industry and gather information on them. This will help you create a database of potential candidates and compare them and build early relationships with them.
