Peak performance means different things to people. The important thing is to understand what it means for your organization
Atlanta (PRWEB) August 11, 2008
Kevin Sessions, president of human capital management firm TalentQuest, has added his expertise to XtremeRecruiting.tv, a video blog with interviews of industry leaders that document what author Bill Vick calls "the collision of demographics, technology and recruiting."
In the interview, Vick and Sessions discussed the increasing demand for integrated talent management services and technology by companies seeking to hire and retain the best employees. Sessions shared the various ways TalentQuest has leveraged several decades of consulting expertise by building technology solutions that tightly align with corporate processes, strategies and goals.
Sessions' full video interview is at http://www.xtremerecruiting.tv/.
The key to a successful outcome is addressing each stage of the talent management lifecycle, he says—from selecting people and succession planning to determining performance management processes and assessing professional development opportunities. When technology serves as the foundation for these critical processes, insightful data can be extracted to enlighten organizational leaders to trends and opportunities for change.
"Our customers are very attracted by how we deal with data," Sessions explained. "Our technology gives us the ability to look at data holistically. We can look at clients' performance standards and identify the high potentials, then see what we can learn and leverage from that. We also analyze their high-performing employees in specific positions to develop competency models that guide recruiting, succession and development."
The discussion delved further into what it takes for organizations to attain what TalentQuest refers to as "Peak Performance." Sessions explained TalentQuest's emphasis on applying Peak Performer® profiles at the onset of the selection process and urged companies to apply a holistic approach in defining peak performance, including individuals, departments and the organization in totality.
"Peak performance means different things to people. The important thing is to understand what it means for your organization," he said.
