Do you really understand the skills of your firm’s talent pool to drive your business growth?
Our research shows that 95% of companies do not. Company leaders often know the skills of a few top performers but have only a general feel of the skills needed to drive returns. They hold senior managers accountable for results and often don’t know the specifics around skills. This makes it challenging to confidently invest and divest of skills to get intended results. As a leader, you need to strategically align your business goals and ensure your team has the skills to execute and create value for your firm.
TeamFit now gives you the insight on skills throughout your organization. One that you can act on.
