Maximize your Talent
LEVERAGE THE UNTAPPED POWER WITHIN YOUR WORKFORCE BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.
We don’t have to tell you that retention of high performing and high potential associates is critical to your organization’s success. Engaged and fulfilled associates become the most valuable to your organization, making the difference between incremental and off-the-charts performance.
Crosworks can help you retain top talent by giving them the tools to chart a path of goal-driven development within the organization. We call this program Maximize Your TalentTM, and we offering it for individuals and teams alike.
“After just finishing the program, we’re already seeing associates take ownership of their careers by working towards leadership roles and moving to new departments. In a few months, we’ll bring Crosworks back so that more associates can participate in the Maximize Your Talent program!”
— Amber Dinopoulos, Director of HR and Organizational Effectiveness, Lifeline of Ohio
Maximize Your Talent
Is a four-step career discovery program that is designed to ensure that the “development” in employee development never goes undefined or unrewarded. For some, development means skills training; for others it is an opportunistic project here or there. Whatever the case, for too many, it’s nothing more than a small paragraph on the annual review. We believe that to retain talent and increase productivity, development must be defined between the organization and the associate, with a clear plan and tangible outcomes.
With Maximize Your Talent, or MYT for short, Crosworks has helped countless top performers and high potential teams:
- Discover their strengths
- Define the gap between where they are and where they would like to be
- Set meaningful goals to achieve success
- Hold themselves accountable, and
- Find opportunities for sharing and continued professional growth
Making these valuable associates far less likely to take a recruiter’s call.
